It's March Madness, and while many may be watching the NCAA Tournament, folks in Taylorville came out Friday night to watch a different type of tournament.

The Christian County YMCA hosted a Midnight Madness 3-on-3 tournament.

The competition featured 53 teams, with more than 200 local kids from grades 1st through 8th playing in the tournament.

"We got teams from Pana, of course Taylorville, and Nokomis and Raymond. There's an Auburn team here and Lincolnwood," said Mike Eisenbarth with the Christian County YMCA. "So, if you look back you'll see some pretty darn good basketball teams and basketball players right here in Central Illinois that just love to come out and play basketball."

The tournament also celebrates the end of the regular season of basketball at the YMCA.
