At Noon on Saturday, the annual dunk contest, sponsored by Miller Lite, will be held on Center Court! The winner of the dunk contest must be playing on a team and will win a $500 prize.
John Giantonio, director of the Cowboy State Games, stated:
With David Street Station being finished, we feel like more people will be coming down to watch the competition and enjoy Memorial Day weekend with some basketball and the Yellowstone Garage car show next door. We’ve waited for DSS (David Street Station) to be completely open and I think it’s going to add an entire new dimension to our tournament. We are very excited to have DSS as the focal location of the tournament.
