Forever Young and Georgia Fire Dominate at Red Bull 3X Atlanta Local Qualifier

  • Date:
    Sep 25, 2021

Georgia Fire and Forever Young took advantage of their local status and won titles at the Red Bull 3X Local Qualifier in Atlanta, clinching berths into the Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Regional on Oct. 9 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

These players now have a chance to be evaluated for further competitions on behalf of USA Basketball and potentially getting to the Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Nationals in 2022.

Women’s champion Forever Young went undefeated all day, playing with quickness and chemistry, despite this being the team’s first time playing 3x3 together. The squad was led by former WNBA star and Atlanta resident Tamera “Ty” Young, as well as Jessica Edwards, Jada Hargrove and Chelsea Hopkins.

“Winning is always the ultimate goal,” Young said of the victory. “This is a great opportunity for women to showcase their skills and love for the game.”

On the men’s side, Georgia Fire took home the first-place title on home turf. Former Tennessee Volunteer guard Devon Baulkman shot the lights out in every game and helped close out a tough final victory against 3Ball Chicago. The team, comprised of Baulkman, PJ Myers, Josh Montgomery and Bernard Parks, won multiple matchups and hit 21 points for the win before the game clock expired. 

“There was a lot of energy,” Baulkman said after their championship win. “It was very competitive.”

Georgie Fire and Forever Young advance to the Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Regionals in Charlotte, where they have the potential to qualify for the 2022 Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Nationals, which will help determine the talent pool used to select the USA 3x3 National Teams.

3x3 is played on a half court with a 10-minute game clock and 12-second shot clock. The winner is the first team to score 21 points or the team in the lead at the end of regulation. The bursts of action and short games leave little room for error, and teams that catch fire become very hard to handle with all the court space 3x3 allows.

Registration for every event remains open till tipoff for anyone who wants their shot at being USA Basketball’s next star.
