3x3U Tournament
Let’s talk about the new 3 on 3 tournament held during the Final Four. If you haven’t heard about it, here it is: https://www.cbssports.com/college-basket...will-work/

I love the idea. Now, for discussion purposes, let’s build a team for the conference, assuming you cannot have more than one player from any team in the conference.

We need four, and they have to be seniors. Give me Cokley, King, Darius Thompson, and Jacobi Boykins. Your thoughts?

King intends to still be playing that weekend.

Couldn't resist...we can all dream.

The PIT is the weekend after. 07-coffee3

Seriously, though, for our conference’s sake, I wouldn’t be mad at him.

We have a young league this year. Man, Marshall seemingly has everyone back next season.

And we cannot have Giddy, because King is on the team already.

I'm kind of partial to WKU's JJ, but the team would need a quick guard like Thompson, I guess.

RE: 3x3U Tournament
THis is a fun discussion.

IMO, the best 3 seniors are Cokley, Boykins, and Coleby. But, in a 3x3 tourney it maymake more sense to go with guys that are better in space.

I go King and Boykins for sure. I think I would take Thompson and Cokely as last 2.

2 guards and a small forward, there is too much floor for bigs to cover

6’4
6’4
6’7

Speed kills

RE: 3x3U Tournament
I assume it'll be a half court game ?

Will it be a team per conference ?

Yes, I'm sure it's a half-court game, and yes, one team per conference.

Chris Cokley would do well in a tournament like that, because you couldn't double team him. If you do, he's turned into a good passer out of the double team.
