Not even a half-court shot can save the Gus Macker basketball tournament. On Monday the Burton City Council voted to scrap the three-on-three event, citing it's high operating costs. The September 1st deadline was approaching for a $5,000 fee and the city just could not find the funding.The event costs at least $10,000 a year just for the licensing alone. A two-day tournament in June at Courtland Center drew 30 less teams than last year. The tournament could return next year, but speculation remains that it is done for good.
