3on3 isn’t new to Spokane but with 3×3 poised to take the Olympic stage in 2020, Spokane Hoopfest takes the spotlight. As the world’s largest 3on3 streetball tournament, we are thrilled to announce a partnership with FIBA to launch our inaugural grassroots event at Hoopfest 2019. Showcasing the international 3×3 game and hosting Olympic hopefuls, we want the Hoopfest world to celebrate this exciting movement in tandem with our 30th Anniversary.
The 3×3 game is very different from the 3on3 that is played over Hoopfest weekend in that it is played with a fast-paced in only 10-minute games. There is a 12-second shot clock, and no breaks or checking after scoring, players just take it back anywhere behind the three-point line. Games are to 21 points by 1’s and 2’s and nonstop music is playing to amp up the intensity. Stop by when checking in your team, shopping at the Hoopfest Store or participating in the Toyota Shootoff on the Friday before Hoopfest to see some of the best 3×3 players in the world!
