We are just days away from the Hooplandia basketball tournament tipping off at the Eastern States Exposition fairgrounds, which could mean a big weekend for local businesses. The three-on-three tournament is starting this weekend and the family and staff at Mamma Mia’s Pizzeria, located just across the street from the event, are hyped up. “We’re huge sports fans, big fans. To bring something like this to just across the street is awesome, Hall of Fame right down the street. Basketball is kind of born into Springfield’s blood, so I think it’s pretty awesome that they’re doing events like this,” said Leonardo Alfarone.
