WAC, Still Ballin’, and LA Dream team consists of former college athletes who will go head to head with one another and the current student-athletes.
A schedule has not yet been released, but fans, viewers, and participants are bound to see some old school vs. new school match-ups.
Some players worth watching include:
Christyn Williams: Williams returns for another shot at winning the 3×3 tournament, this time for the Huskies. The American Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year has a shiftiness to her game that she can utilize in the 3×3 setting. She won the 3×3 FIBA U18 World Cup Medal in 2017.
Rebekah Gardner: Gardner is a former UCLA standout who played in the WNBA and as an overseas pro. She has played the game on all levels. Gardner possess a high basketball IQ and brings experience to this tournament.
Shakira Austin: Austin’s shot blocking capabilities makes her a player to watch out for. She finished her rookie campaign for the Terrapins with 89 blocks on the season, a school record…. Good luck to whomever dares to enter Austin’s house on the block.
Sabrina Ionescu: Voted the 2018-2019 National Player of the Year, Ionescu may yet again be the deadliest player in the 3×3 tournament. Ionescu is a key reason why the Ducks went 8-0 and won the 3×3 National Tournament in 2018. The reigning 3×3 MVP should be feeling good about another shot at winning gold.
Elissa Cunane: A member of the All-ACC freshman team and first team All-ACC tournament team, Cunane is a factor on offense and defense. The 6’5 center tallied 464 points, 67 offensive rebounds, and pulled down 146 defensive boards. She can be a nightmare for whoever has to match up with her on the inside.
