On a toasty final day of Hoopfest, the top elite teams took to the center court where the average temperature was 110 degrees. One player even needed to get an IV as his team's journey to the finals meant playing eight games to play in the final round

The day started off with the slamdunk contest where “Superman”, a former state champion high jumper at University High School stole the show.

As the heat began to fade, the Elite 6' foot and under championship took center court and the defending champions, Desert Horse Elite, retained their title after defeating Charlie's Gold 20-16. J.R. Camel won the MVP honors.

The last basketball game at Hoopfest 2015 was the Men's Elite 6' feet and over championship game. 120 Sports defeated the reigning champs, Roots Basketball, 20-17. 120 Sports was made of former Northwestern University basketball players and played 8 games on Sunday on their way to taking the title. Craig Moore took the home the M.V.P award.
