Good luck to the Manitoba 3x3 basketball team that will be competing in the Jeux de la francophonie 3x3 in Moncton, New Brunswick from July 10-16. Team members include (pictured above left to right at the recent Canada Quest 3x3 Tournament in Winnipeg) Zack Dembélé, Nicholas Stevenson, Eric Lemoine (coach), Dany Dupuis, Lionel Farrati, Anthony Bruneau-Cormier.
3x3 basketball is a modern and fairly recent variant of the Games. Added to the 2008 CF Games as an official discipline, 3x3 basketball offers a women's tournament and a men's tournament with between 8 and 13 teams. The teams are made up of five players in total and the sport is usually practiced on outdoor half-fields on a hard surface such as asphalt or cement, similar to street basketball.

Good luck Team Manitoba!
