3-on-3 Hoopfest at YU Athletics Day

On Sunday, Aug. 28, 2022, 18 teams, brought together by the Office of Alumni Affairs to raise funds for the YU Athletics Department, dealt out astonishing pick-and-rolls, jazzy no-look passes and clutch outside shots as they battled during the inaugural YU Athletics Day for the coveted prize of being the 3-on-3 Champion and the winner of premium seats for three New York sport teams.

And the winners were Mikey Mouyal, Michael Mann and Shmuel Bitton, who won tickets to the Knicks, Nets and Rangers (in addition to bragging rights).

A special thanks goes out to the four sponsors whose significant contribution to the event made the day as dynamic and exciting as it was: Rosenberg and Steinmenz PC, Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation (Ken Goffstein), The Jewish Link (Moshe Kinderlehrer) and Klipped. We look forward to working with them again in the future.

Some familiar YU Macs faces also made the scene, including Jordan Armstrong, Sammy Mandel, Alon Jakobowitz and Aryeh Halpert.

After the hard-fought contests, everyone met up at Tenzer Gardens to hear the Top Cats, an all-alumni band, rock the scene as they enjoyed delicious barbecue and won gift baskets filled with excellent YU swag at the raffle, including blankets, sunglasses, ear buds, flip flops and baseball caps.

The events organized by the Office of Alumni Affairs are designed to offer opportunities to the 70,000-plus YU alumni living around the world to maintain their lifelong bond to the University and with each other.

Supporting the YU Athletics Department was especially meaningful because of how athletics at the University teaches YU’s superlative student-athletes the values they will need to gain success in the world.
