Ball is life.

We're smack in the middle of March Madness and emotions are high. Your bracket is possibly in shambles or you couldn't care less, either way, NCAA basketball is the most popular topic of conversation at the moment. If you need to burn off some frustration or practice any new moves you've seen during the tournaments, these Sacremento State grads got you.
Twin brothers Donte and Dominic Morris wanted to create a safe way for the baller in you to find local pick up games in your community. Like most of us growing up, they could pull up to their local courts and find it jam packed with players and spectators. Now, they've found it harder to find actives games anywhere.
"I always miss a good game," Dante shared with CBS Sacremento. "There has to be a better opportunity where I get out of work, look at my phone, and see where the games are being played at."
Thus, Hoop Maps was born.
The app has only been around for a few months and it's already drawing in large numbers. Users can create a profile, check-in with a location and schedule an active game. You can also invite friends to join in on the fun.
With summer around the corner, this app couldn't have come at a better time. Hoop Maps can be found in the App Store.
