Guam - A farewell 5-on-5 basketball tournament will be held at the Agana Heights Gym on Saturday beginning at 1 in the afternoon.  A total of 14 tournaments have been held so far, with this being the last one as organizer William Jacobs is set to leave island.

Jacobs is in the military and his next duty station will be in North Carolina. William Jacobs said that since he moved on island back in November of 2007 he has met a lot of people through the sport and has even played in the Chuukese Amateur Basketball League.

The tournament is by donation and looks to be the biggest held with the buzz of the winning team taking home some cash. Jacobs wife's family are from Guam and says he will definitely be back to visit.
