NOTE: Final standings for 5th-24th places were determined by the FIBA classification criteria.

The 2014 USA 3x3 World Championship Team included collegiate players Cierra Burdick, Sara Hammond, Jewell Loyd and Tiffany Mitchell. The team earmed the right to represent the USA at the FIBA 3x3 World Championship after winning the 2014 USA Basketball 3x3 National Championship that was played May 10-11 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Day 1 - June 5
The USA women won both their games on the first day of compettion, including a 21-5 victory over Hungary and a 21-5 win over Brazil.

“It’s definitely more physical than in the U.S., by far,” Loyd siad. “They kind of let you get away with a lot of pushing and stuff. We had to adjust a little bit on offense and our mindset a little bit, but other than that, it’s been a pretty good competition.”

Day 2 - June 6
Day two saw the USA rack up three wins in its Group D, including victories over Ukraine (21-10), Spain (16-6) and Argentina (21-11).

Day 3 - June 7
The USA women beat Uruguay 19-6 to qualify amongst the eight teams moving on to the quarterfinals, where, matched up against France, the USA came out on top 12-9 to advance to the semifinal round.

“(Our games today) were pretty physical, which is how a lot of teams have been playing us since we got here,” Mitchell said. “They’re trying to be really physical with us, so we’re just trying to keep our heads and just do what we do best. We know we’re a good team. We’re playing well, so that’s all we’re trying to keep doing.”

Day 4 - June 8
Waiting for the USA in the semifinals was Belgium, which the USA beat 18-14. While the Americans led from nearly start to finish, the game was tied at 13-all with just over a minute to play before the USA put together a 5-1 run to close out the win.

“We came together,” said Mitchell. “We’ve had to play tough the whole time. A lot of teams played us physical, and I think we stuck together through the adversity. We knew the tough plays were going to come, so we just stayed together and kept our heads.”

In the championship game, the Americans trailed 1-0 in the first minute before outscoring Russia 7-2 to lead 8-3 at 4:33 when Russia called a timeout. From there, the USA’s lead never diminished on the way to a 15-8 win.

“It just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter,” said Burdick, who collected her fourth international gold medal. “Every gold medal has its own moments and special experiences. But it is more intimate, I would say, with this group. There are just three on the court at a time and four of us together, one coach – we are a close-knit group. I’m just grateful the opportunity.”

In the women’s bronze medal game, Belgium defeated Czech Republic 14-12.

Loyd, who qualified for the finals of the skills contest with the fastest time, finished tied for a bronze medal with Fleur Devillers (France). The skills contest gold medal went to Valentina Baldelli (Italy) and the silver to Hind Abdelkader (Belgium).

In the coed shootout, the top finisher was Daniel Hure (Argentina), followed by Sarah Kershaw (Switzerland) and a tie for bronze between Yurena Diaz (Spain) and Christian Gunawan (Indonesia). In the coed free throw pursuit, gold, silver and bronze went to Angel Santana (Romania), Ann Wauters (Belgium) and Amaya Gastaminza (Spain), respectively.
