Following an enjoyable and altogether successful inaugural year, Bandsketball is back. The band-based basketball tournament returned to the courts on Fratney and Center streets in Riverwest for a second session last weekend, as 32 teams laced up their sneakers…along with a great deal of less-appropriate footwear and convened for the DIY tourney’s opening round. By the time the last game ended, a respectable crowd turned out to see the field shrink by 16 teams.
