Here's the list.

A FIBA 3x3 Championship Event?!?!

With FIBA looking to push the 3x3 game as a viable basketball event, they have set up a Youth World Championships for the beginning of September. FIBA did try the 3x3 concept out at the last World Youth Games as a test event and it seemed to go over well enough for them to hold the first World Championship. This will be an interesting event for sure and you can bet the refs at these games will be better than the ones at your local 3x3 tournament for sure.

The Senior Women Fall a Little Short to Greece

So another night wasted on trying to get more stories from the Senior Women in the Czech Republic. There were a couple more for this game than yesterday but still not as many as I think there should be. Anyway, here is the link to the FIBA game recap which includes the boxscore and summary. The Senior Women fought valiantly but their comback came up a little short in the end. The team falls to 1-5 and are likely out of the medals, actually they may have been out as of yesterday, but they will be playing one more game tomorrow against France before the classification games. They can still win the game but it may take a Herculean effort and a little luck too.

Senior Women Fall to US in Second Round

So I'm becoming increasingly disappointed at the coverage of (or lack there of) our Senior Women's National Team by the media. I wait all this time to post something and I only have two newspaper articles from major pubs and the Canada Basketball release (which is largely from FIBA). Anyway, in case it was in doubt, Canada lost to the US in their first game of the second round in the Czech Republic. Today they face Greece super early in the morning Canada time. The Women have a shot at winning this game though they will likely have a tough time of it. Best of luck to them.
