Please arrive early and be ready to “play games” at YOUR SCHEDULED TIMES!
Upon arrival, TEAM CAPTAIN should check-in with the tournament director and get team t-shirts.
RULES OF THE 3on3 GAME
1st team to 20 points or 12 minutes in length (whichever comes first).
“straight up scoring” that means 3 pt shots are worth 3 points, 2 point shots are worth 2 points and fouled in the act of shooting is worth 1 point plus another possession (if it didn’t go in the basket )—if the shot was made and you were fouled you add 1 point to whatever amount the made basket was worth and it’s the other teams possession!
THERE ARE NO TIE GAMES—if score is tied at end of the game each team will choose a player to shoot a free throw until one team makes their free throw while the other team misses their free throw. Players may only shoot ONE free throw, if both teams players both make/miss, then each team picks a DIFFERENT PLAYER to each shoot a free throw until the tie is broken!
Possession to start the game-COIN FLIP
One timeout per game per team
Teams can sub at any deadball (if ball is not already “checked in” yet)—run on/off court please!
ALL jumpballs are awarded to the team playing DEFENSE AT THAT TIME
AFTER A MADE SHOT , VIOLATION, BALL GOING OUT OF BOUNDS (DEAD BALL)
The ball is “CHECKED IN” at the top of the key above the 3 point line IT’S A LIVE BALL (DRIBBLE, PASS OR SHOOT IT)
AFTER A MISSED SHOT OR STEAL OF THE BALL (LIVE BALL)
If the shooting team gets a rebound they can continue to shoot the ball.
If the defensive team gets the rebound or steals the ball they MUST take the ball back ANYWHERE behind the 3 point arc (the player behind the arc must not have any part of their body touching the court inside the arc before they can score) THEY CAN PASS, DRIBBLE OR SHOOT ONCE “TAKEN BACK”
PLEASE REMEMBER THE PURPOSE OF THIS EVENT IS TO COMPETE,
& HAVE FUN PLAYING BASKETBALL LIKE NICK ALWAYS DID!
