USA Falls in Semifinals at FIBA 3x3 Women’s Series Montreal Stop

  • Date:
    Sep 4, 2021


In the semifinals of the 2021 FIBA 3x3 Women’s Series Montreal stop, the USA got a rematch against Austria (3-2), a team it had beat 15-14 in preliminary round play the day before, but this time the USA (3-1) came up short, 17-15, on Sept. 4 in Canada.

Austria will play Spain (4-0) in the championship game.

The semifinal contest was close for the first three minutes, and the USA trailed Austria 5-4 when Hailey Van Lith (Louisville/Wenatchee, Wash.) scored at 6:54. Austria opened up a 9-4 lead with four straight points.

The USA got points from Jordan Reynolds (Tennessee/Portland, Ore.), Breanna Richardson (Mississippi State/Conyers, Ga.) and Camille Zimmerman (Columbia/Mesa, Ariz.) to help keep Austria from pulling away, and it was 12-8 in Austria’s favor at 2:49.

That four-point margin remained over the next 1:35, and it was 16-12 at 1:14. Van Lith made a 2-pointer at 35.1 seconds that made it 16-14 and gave the USA some hope, but time ran out on the USA’s comeback attempt, and each team scored once more to reach the 17-15 final.

Richardson had eight points, and Van Lith added five points and six rebounds.

The USA, which got outrebounded 21-17, shot just 44.0% from inside the arc (11-25 1pt FGs) and 14.3% from behind the line (1-7 2pt FGs).

The USA is hoping to earn an invitation to the 2021 FIBA 3x3 Women’s Series Final that will be played on Sept. 18-19 in Bucharest. The host nation of Romania and the top seven teams in the FIBA 3x3 Women’s Series season standings will earn an invitation to the event.

USA teams also participated in the FIBA 3x3 Women’s Series Constanta stop that was played Aug. 14-15 and won the Klaipeda stop that was played July 30-31.
