GAME 3 SET TO BOUNCE: 3x3 BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP
Registrations are now on the final week. Those teams yet to sort out their registrations need to contact Games Commissioner Uriel Matanani to confirm a place in the 3rd game.
Promising teams to look for in game 3 are SOSA, dominated in height advantage. Blazers sharp shooter Maka, Diz-Organized guard Dru, Gunnerz smooth ball handling guard Agu and Silky Skillz fresh styles.
The venue again will be at Multi Purpose hall, first game kicking off at 10am. All teams are again advised to be on time and be in uniform for game 3. Uniforms will assist in identifying players with numbers when registering scores and other data to be uploaded on 3x3planet.com.
Also on the line, is the 3-point shoot – out. Waige Turueke won the 1st one in Easter, while Alan Wanefai from Marist won the 2nd game during the Whit – Monday holiday. Queens birthday holiday 10th June 2016, who will win this 3-point, shoot out? During the Whit – Monday holiday, we saw a very low score rate from all our local shooters, while Waige and Alan both hit high shots of 5 and 6 shots in 20 seconds.
The organizers stressed “the good thing about this 3x3 Basketball event is all our players are created a profile where their statistics and performance is recorded and put into the 3x3 planet website to create a ranking system for our basketball players” He went on to add “our local basketball players are ranked against all the players around the 3x3 Basketball globe. Being new to this event, will take some time to build their stats but the good thing is they will be noticed through their international ranking.”
The reason why registration needs to be submitted in good time is, all the teams data will have to be entered into the system online, to begin the events statistics and process. The tournament maker then generates all the fixtures and timings of the games based on the data input. Data will include players stats, teams stats etc. The event make generates the teams seeding into pools based on team’s stats. Then we ready to go.
