PRINCETON, IN (WFIE) -

Basketball players step onto the court this weekend in Princeton to raise money for charity.

The two day basketball tournament called 'Ball Till You Fall' was created by Nicholas Burns five years ago.

Burns says he started the event to give back to the community.

This year proceeds from the tournament are going to Relay for Life which raises money for cancer research.

Burns says almost 30 teams signed up for the tournament and they came from all over.

"A lot of everybody played against each other in high school and then there are locals everywhere," said Burns "We have people from Madisonville, Kentucky, we have Vincennes, people from up north around Vincennes, we've got Owensboro. Everywhere around."

Burns says the tournament will take place again next year.
