The FIBA U18 3×3 World Championships don’t receive a ton of attention from the American basketball audience, but we’ve sent some talented players to Hungary to compete for gold this summer.
Representing the United States includes Oklahoma commit Payton Pritchard, Gonzaga commit Zach Collins, North Carolina commit Jalek Felton and Class of 2017 forward P.J. Washington. The team advanced to the quarterfinals with a win over Poland on Saturday as Pritchard had nine 3-pointers (considered 2-pointers with the one and two-point baskets in 3×3 ball) to lead them to victory.
The United States will play France in the quarterfinals.
