The number one 3x3 players for 2014 from all around the world

Dejan Majstorovic, the number one 3x3 player in Serbia and the entire world, headlines the list of players (men and women) who finished 2014 and started 2015 as the best 3x3 players in their respective countries and territories.

Among them are some familiar faces such as the reigning FIBA 3x3 World Champion with Qatar (and former FIBA U19 World Championship top scorer) Yaseen Musa and NCAA superstar with Notre Dame and FIBA 3x3 World Champion with USA, Jewell Loyd.

The new generation is taking over with 23-year-old Terrence Bill Romeo on top of the men's rankings in the Philippines and 19-year-old rising star Hind Ben Abdelkader jumping to number one 3x3 women's player in Belgium (and in the rest of the world).

E-learning programme for FIBA 3x3 launched


The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) on Friday announced the launch of its new 3x3 basketball specific education initiative, the 3x3 e-learning programme (http://academy.fiba.com).

This innovative education tool developed by the FIBA Academy with the FIBA 3x3 team is now available to FIBA's 214 member National Federations and the 3x3 community worldwide.

The programme brings together the various components of 3x3 to explain the used nomenclature, the rules of the game, the competition structure, player rankings and the digital platforms required to organise, manage and participate in the fast-rising discipline.

One major factor to come from the 3x3 e-learning programme is that the 3x3 Federation Ranking points will be doubled for National Federations that have at least one staff member or administrator successfully complete the programme.

This is an incentive for all national federations to participate in the programme and raise their knowledge of 3x3.

The 3x3 Federation Ranking is the criteria used to identify the teams qualified to FIBA 3x3 World Championships (men, women, U18 men, U18 women) and the Youth Olympic Games.

The programme is set to provide an important stepping stone for National Federations and 3x3 Organisers to further improve their knowledge and to develop 3x3 as a whole.

On 12 December, the FIBA 3x3 All Stars will conclude an exceptional season for 3x3 that saw the dynamic discipline make a second successful appearance at the Youth Olympic Games and continue to expand with a growing number of events – including the national-team FIBA 3x3 World Championships and the city-based FIBA 3x3 World Tour – and players around the world.

About FIBA and 3x3 basketball

Exciting, urban and innovative, 3x3 basketball is inspired by several forms of streetball played worldwide. Steered by FIBA, games see two teams of three players face off on a basketball half-court.

It was played successfully for the first time in international competition at the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore and since then has benefitted from the launch of a yearly city-based 3x3 World Tour (www.3x3worldtour.com) and national-team world championships.

For further information about the FIBA 3x3 World Tour and 3x3 basketball, visit fiba.com/3x3, twitter.com/3x3planet and youtube.com/3x3planet or contact 3x3@fiba.com.

About the FIBA Academy

The FIBA Academy is the educational division of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) and is managed by its foundation, the International Basketball Foundation (IBF). It was established in 2008 to deliver 'Best Practice' academic programmes, in order to ensure that ...


... FIBA athletes, managers, and event organisers from across the globe have access to the highest quality education and is a partnership programme with the World Academy of Sport.

FIBA 3x3 World Tour Basketball Tournaments & News • Noticias & Competencias de Baloncesto Gira Mundial FIBA 3x3

Three’s a charm

One of the magnificent things about basketball is its simplicity. In so many of the photos in the book Basketball is Everywhere - published this summer to celebrate FIBA’s 80th anniversary - that was abundantly clear.

A boy, a basket and a ball - my apology to the ladies but I was going for alliteration there - is all you need. Add another person and you’ve got a game. Even odd numbers like 2 v 1 or 3 v 2 can work, straight up or in games like 21. Basketball is perhaps the only game that truly lends itself to any combination of participants.

One of the enduring renditions is 3x3, the perfect small-sized game. Its popularity is documented. Played in organized competitions across the USA like the Gus Macker tournament, which was born on a Michigan driveway in 1974, it went corporate when Foot Locker shoe stores began sponsoring events across the USA and in Puerto Rico in the early 1980s and grown through events like Hoop It Up since then.

In 2008, an entrepreneur announced plans for the 3BA, a professional 3 on 3 circuit, which spurred exhibitions and interest but that has yet to reach fruition.

As with everything else in the game, save for slam dunk events, 3on3 has long been part of the wheelchair game. The Texas International Shootout Tournament has been played for 21 years. The Turning Point DK 3 on 3, launched eight years ago by USA Women’s coach David Kiley, is a unique basketball event that teams are put together by the organizers, men and women together, including national teamers, National Wheelchair Basketball Association (NWBA) and collegiate champions. He promoted a tournament in California before he moved to North Carolina 16 years ago.

Now, as beach volleyball has become a staple of the global dig, set and spike game, the next big thing in hoops could be world class 3x3. It has become a major initiative of FIBA who want to see it in the Olympic Games as well as the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation (IWBF) which is rolling out both half- and full-court versions of the game for wheelchair players around the world.

As proven with the emergence, codification and success of beach volleyball, the engagement of 3x3 basketball by FIBA and the IWBF is a sensible broadening of the game.

IWBF President and Secretary-General Maureen Orchard could hardly contain her enthusiasm when talking about it during the London Paralympics.

She and others like FIBA Europe executive and IWBF Europe President Jan Berteling believe 3x3 is a fertile gateway to bringing new players and countries into the game.

“Here’s the difference in what it means to wheelchair basketball,” says Orchard, “Small countries can be competitive in 3x3; for women you can have 12 or 14 women and now you have three or four teams instead of one team.”

There is a great logic to what Orchard and Berteling tout as it makes the game more, if you’ll excuse the term, accessible for countries and areas where the population of potential wheelchair players and/or access to proper equipment may be more limited.

Whereas FIBA is pushing the traditional half-court 3x3, the IWBF is promoting a full court version as well.

“For wheelchair basketball, 3x3 (with) one basket is not exciting,” said Orchard, who followed up with an explanation.

“3x3 the way FIBA plays it - you can call it streetball which is what I’m used to - is a great fun game, a great way to experience above the rim and all the rest of it. In 3x3 wheelchair basketball, because they can’t move laterally, four chairs in the key with nobody having to get out, is just not that exciting. And the tallest guy in wheelchair basketball is going to take the shot.”

While many who play the half-court game may disagree, Orchard’s point is that the two-basket game forces players to move up and down the court, which is closer to the 5 v 5 game in terms of team play and spacing, and is a better development tool for both men and women in countries new to the game or with less resources.

“For us, 3x3 full-court allows us to demonstrate the excitement of wheelchair basketball in a way 3x3 one basket doesn’t,” said Orchard.

“It teaches them the skills, the proper way to play the game. To quote (current University of Illinois and former Canada coach) Mike Frogley, as a coach he’s excited about it because the players have to learn to play the whole court.”

She asked Frogley to incorporate full-court 3x3 into his basketball camps and says, “The kids absolutely loved it.”

Orchard feels an important factor towards growth is the cost of buying five basketball wheelchairs versus the cost of buying 12 chairs to complete a team. There was another benefit discovered as well.

“The good thing for me is that while three kids are playing, two kids watch rather than five kids playing and seven kids watching,” she pointed out.

While emphasis will be on a full-court game, Orchard added that the IWBF plan is two-fold with the federation approving both versions of the game.

And you’ll see it soon at an IWBF event near you. 3x3 will be played in the Parapan American Youth Games by women in 2013 as well as the Central American Games, and will be played by both men and women at the Asia Youth Games.

It probably won’t be on the schedule for Rio in 2016 but scaled-down games are already in Paralympic play. Football in the Paralympics is competed in five-a-side (visually impaired) and seven-a-side (cerebral palsy) competitions.

The details regarding classification points on the floor (8.5) and timing (7 minutes running time) are being finalized. Court size is another issue as Berteling notes that the American style of two smaller full courts set up crosswise on each half of a regulation full length court, are far less common in Europe and other places.


I’ve talked to several players who love the half-court, one-basket game but the possibilities of the full-court game are intriguing. Personally, I think the regulation court will prove too big but let them play and see how it works out.

FIBA 3x3 World Tour Basketball Tournaments & News • Noticias & Competencias de Baloncesto Gira Mundial FIBA 3x3

3x3 - Serbia, USA and France follow in senior ' footsteps,
Thomas and Jurtom put on show

There was an air of deja vu as the FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championships, presented by Nike, came to a close on Sunday in Alcobendas, Spain.

Serbia won the Boys tournament, the USA ended Spain's reign in the Girls event and France came out on top in the Mixed competition.

This was very similar to what transpired in Athens, Greece at last month's FIBA 3x3 World Championships when the Serbians claimed the Men's gold medal, the Americans prevailed in the Women's Final and France made history in winning the first-ever FIBA Mixed competition.

After the first two days of competition were played in the Amaya Valdemoro Pavilion because of bad weather, the sun finally shone bright and allowed for the teams to take to the courts in the José Caballero sports centre.

The great weather was only one of the reasons why the last day of the FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championships finished in spectacular fashion.

No better climax

The tournament could not have finished with a better climax than what was offered in the Boys Final.

Serbia led 16-12, but the USA came back to tie the game at 19 all on Rondae Hollis-Jefferson's lay-up as time ran out in regulation.

The extra session got off to a great start with Hollis-Jefferson driving the lane for a thundering left-hand dunk that made it 20-19.

However, Serbia had the last word as Mihaljo Andric launched a shot from way beyond the arc that hit off the square on the backboard and the ball then rolled in for a winning score of 21-20. In 3x3 rules, the game finishes when one of the teams scores two points in the overtime.

The Girls Final meanwhile saw the USA beat defending champions Spain 21-13.

The Americans were in the ascendency but couldn't quite pull away as the hosts got within 16-11 on Ariadna Pujol's lay-up.

However, it was pretty much all USA thereafter as Kaela Davis - who played in the inaugural FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championships in Rimini, Italy in 2011 - caught fire to scoring inside and then hitting a clutch pair of shots from beyond the arc to put the game out of reach.

The first-ever Mixed Tournament Final pitted European neighbours France and Switzerland.

With Damien Inglis leading by example, the France prevailed 21-12 to become the first champions of the new and exciting event.

Inglis almost scored at will inside, throwing down some vicious dunks, while team-mate Charly Pontens overcame a slow start to find his rhythm and score key baskets.

The Swiss fell behind 14-8 when Pontens converted a shot and made the free-throw.

Through some spectacular drives by Cyril Baechler, Switzerland got within 15-10 but France just had too much offensive firepower down the stretch.

Thomas and Jurtom put on a show

Sunday also saw the culmination of the individual competitions and the excitement was at its peak for the much-anticipated Nike Dunk Contest.

The fans certainly weren't let down as Terry Thomas of Germany and Estonia's Martin Jurtom put on a show, with the former coming out on top.

Thomas had several impressive dunks. One had him jump over a crouched team-mate and pass the ball between his legs before throwing it down.

He also jumped from just inside the free-throw line and then replicated a dunk he did in the qualifying round, when he skied above an advertising board and windmilled the ball through the hoop.

Jurtom showed off his originality with a baseline reverse two-handed dunk, before jumping over two team-mates for a tomahawk slam. Perhaps his finest effort was the one that saw him switch the ball from his right hand to his left hand in mid-air and finish with a powerful windmill jam.

The USA's Hollis-Jefferson and Baechler of Switzerland finished in a tie for third.

Hollis-Jefferson had the crowd going wild in the first of the two-round Final as he caught the ball off a lob thrown by USA Girls team member Davis from the stands and threw it down ferociously with the left hand. He later took another pass by Davis and dunked over a team-mate standing in front of the basket.

In the Final of the Samsung Shootout, Moses Tree-Vanne of Belize got the better of his three opponents to take home a latest generation Samsung digital camera.

Tree-Vanne had the hot hand as he scored 8 points in the Final, twice as much as the 4 managed by second-place Monika Naczk from Poland.

Lithuania's Justinas Gecas finished third with 3 points and Elisa Penna of Italy rounded out the field.

Finally, Germany were the winners of the inaugural 2 Ball Contest.


The team consisting of Robert Zinn and Terry Thomas scored 5 points in 49 seconds.

It was enough to deny the home favourites of Borja Mendia and Ariadna Pujol who scored 4 points in 47 seconds.

FIBA 3x3 World Tour Basketball Tournaments • Competencias de Baloncesto Gira Mundial FIBA 3x3

3x3 - U18 World Championships set to tip off, close first 3x3 season

The second edition of the FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championships got underway TODAY, Friday 28th, just outside the Spanish capital city of Madrid.

A total of 224 players making up 56 teams from 40 different countries will take part in the three-day (28-30 September) tournament where 18 medals and six world titles are at stake.

The Boys' 3x3 tournament will be disputed by 32 teams, while 24 will contest the Girls' 3x3 tournament.

New Zealand and Spain, respectively, are the defending champions having triumphed at the first-ever FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championships held in Rimini, Italy, last year.

A new addition to the tournament is a Mixed tournament which consists of eight different national sides that sees boys and girls from a same country join forces.

As well as the teams competitions, there are also contests for players to individually showcase their skills: the Samsung Shootout, the Nike Dunk Contest and the 2 Ball Contest.

"This is certain to be a breathtaking weekend of 3x3 basketball as Alcobendas becomes the internationa basketball capital," said FIBA Secretary General and IOC member Patrick Baumann.

"We would like to thank the Municipality of Alcobendas for their hospitality and their long-standing support for basketball.

"Our thanks also go to the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB) who are organising their second international 3x3 event with us (FIBA) following the successful 3x3 World Tour stop held in Madrid's Plaza de Toros.

"This event has a very special significance as it concludes our first full season of elite 3x3 basketball and also it was the first-ever international 3x3 tournament organised by FIBA."

FEB President Jose Luis Saez explained that the tournament was one for all to enjoy.

"The FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championships in Alcobendas is made possible by the interest and excitement we ahve for this project, which we want to be for everyone," he said.

"This is why we're going to make the three days of competition a real party on and off the courts."

The choice of Alcobendas as a venue for the 3x3 tournament is an inspired one as the city famously was the site of the Pedro Ferrandiz Foundation, named after the most successful Spanish coach.

The building that housed the Foundation is now known as "Espacio 2014" and serves as the headquarters for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup to be held in Spain.

"The 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup will be played in six cities: Granada, Sevilla, Bilbao, Las Palmas, Madrid and Barcelona. The seventh will be Alcobendas," said Mr Saez.

"This is where we have our headquarters. Starting in October and all the way through the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup, people will be able to come and see the history of Spanish basketball here."




The FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championships got underway TODAY at 13:00 local time (GMT +2).
