Basketball Manitoba and Hoop It Up would like to thank the 100 teams that took part in this last weekend's 3x3 event at Garden City Shopping Centre!  The weekend featured a total of 273 games played in 12 different categories.  Most playoff games were shifted over to Garden City Collegiate on Sunday afternoon to get out of the rain.  The rain didn't dampen the great basketball and celebration of the return of a large scale outdoor 3on3 basketball event to Winnipeg for the first time in 5 years.   The full results of the games and division champions can be found on the official event website at...

FIBA 3x3 Planet - Hoop It Up Winnipeg

When on the event page, rate our event at the top right!

The Top Gun Men's Division was part of the 3x3 Canada Quest series and saw TEAM WINNIPEG (pictured above) take the title over THE ACADEMY in a 21-14 final.  Winnipeg team members Darcy Coss, Wyatt Anders, Graham Bodnar and Xavier Smith (now the #3-5 ranked players in Canada) will now represent Winnipeg and travel to Chicago on August 15-16 to compete in the FIBA World Tour event against another 11 teams who won qualifier events from North and Central America.  The top teams out of Chicago will finish at the FIBA 3x3 World Championship in Tokyo this fall.

All the player rankings have been updated to the FIBA 3x3 Planet website.  This new world ranking now includes all Hoop It Up Winnipeg participants who took part in the event.  See your new FIBA 3x3 World Ranking at...
