Awesome, I will definitely check this out- tried to look for a bracket to see what pool each conference was in but couldn’t find one, do you have a link?

Wonder if USA basketball is silently involved here to do some talent scouting since 3 on 3 will be in the olynpics in 2020 and I don’t think they are going to use NBA players

Almost certain that they are. USAB has been heavy on the 3x3 bandwagon this year.

BTW, for any of us who do youth coaching, you should check out the new USA Basketball youth coaching, training, and game guidelines. Some odd rules in there, but I think they're very well thought out to improve skill development. One I love is that they recommend a shot clock all the way down to like age 14.

We lost all three pool play games
21-19
21-20
21-19
and therefore did not advance
and we played a bit short handed because Jelks hurt his hand.
