Its going to cost between $15-25 to play depending on how many people sign up and how many games we decide to play (we have to pay for outside ref fees on a per-game basis). We’ll make a final call on price this week, but in the meantime if you think you’re interested in playing signup on the google doc and get ready to show off your inner Steph Curry skills! Just a heads up, games will begin after Winter break and will conclude well before finals in February!
