Philadelphia -- Basketball enthusiasts of all ages will hoop it up at Ten Zone, an activity booth being sponsored by Bell Atlantic during the free Pep Boys Fan Fest presented by Pennzoil outside The Spectrum in Philadelphia, March 10-11.

Visitors will have an opportunity to test their skills, pick up free stuff and be part of the action at this and other booths in a 7,200 square-foot tent outside the arena. Slated to run from 3:30-7 p.m. on Friday, March 10 and 3-6 p.m. on Saturday, March 11, FanFest precedes the Atlantic 10 men's basketball championships.
