Rhinelander Basketball Association starts 3v3 leagueSubmitted: 10/21/2018
RHINELANDER - There's no better feeling for a basketball player than swishing a jumper.

Thanks to Rhinelander head coach Derek Lemmens, more kids are getting that opportunity.

"We kind of have that pickup atmosphere with a competitive attitude," Lemmens said.

Lemmens started Rhinelander Basketball Association's first-ever three-on-three league. Its opened to rave reviews from young ballers.

"It's just like a practice game, basically," eighth-grader Kyle Brown said. "It's pretty amazing, if you think about it."


The tournament covers a variety of ages, from third graders looking to have fun, to eighth graders who are preparing to play basketball at Rhinelander High School next year.

"I just always try to get in the gym as much as I can, so this is a great opportunity," participant Jack Seidl said.

Some of these competitors just finished playing fall sports and need a low-stress way to transition into basketball season.

"This Sunday night window is open so that they can continue to still get in the gym and play and not really interfere with the season they're already committed to," Lemmens said.

The league is also a chance for kids to do something they like every weekend.

"My whole family plays basketball and so like they just got me into basketball and I just love it," Seidl said.
Next week is the last Sunday of three-on-three play. Lemmens says he hopes to get eight teams per age group next season.

GREEN BAY (AP) - Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes in the second half after returning from a knee injury, and the Green Bay Packers overcame a 20-point deficit for a thrilling 24-23 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.

Rodgers, who was carted off in the first half, connected with receiver Randall Cobb for a catch-and-run through the secondary for a 75-yard touchdown and the go-ahead score with 2:13 left in the game.

Nick Perry sacked the Bears' Mitchell Trubisky on fourth-and-10 with 58 seconds to complete the comeback.

A Chicago defense featuring newly acquired star linebacker Khalil Mack dominated until the third quarter. Mack had a 27-yard interception return for a touchdown against backup quarterback DeShone Kizer in the second quarter.

A gimpy Rodgers returned in the second half and finally figured out the Bears. He also found Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison for touchdown passes.
