Downtown Boise was definitely the "hot spot" this weekend for basketball players of all ages, bearing the heat for the 11th annual "Bam Jam Boise", a 3-on-3 basketball tournament.

If you've been down there, you know the competition isn't just for the pros. One young fan, who was there to cheer on his sister, knew exactly what he was there to see: "A little bit of action, and a little bit of shots," said Amaari Dozier, younger brother of a Bam Jam teen player.

Crowds gather along Bannock and 6th Streets to get in on the action and cheer on young girls and boys competing for age-specific titles.
