Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, NCAA athletes are offered five years of eligibility. After the Summer Games in Paris - Hailey Van Lith will play her final year of eligibility at Texas Christian University. 

This will be the 3x3’s second appearance in the Summer Olympics.

3x3 basketball debuted at the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games (which took place in 2021 in empty arenas due to COVID-19.)

How does 3x3 work?

3x3 basketball is played in with only a half-court. It uses a 10-minute game clock and a 12-second shot clock.

3x3 is continuous, with teams resetting possession by passing the ball behind the 2-point line - after a basket, defensive rebound, or steal.

Regular baskets are worth one point and shots from behind the 2-point line are (you guessed it) worth two points.

Who wins?

The first team that scores 21 points wins or whatever team is ahead after the 10-minute game clock ends.
