3Ball Omaha and Connecticut Force 10 Capture Decisive Wins at 3X Qualifier In Minneapolis

  • Date:
    Aug 12, 2022


3Ball Omaha and Connecticut Force 10 captured the top spots at the 3X Qualifier in Minnesota. The rosters across the competition included professionals, top college players and local hoopers on 4 women’s teams and 12 men’s sqauds.


The women’s final saw Connecticut Force 10 matchup against Seattle Force 10. Connecticut faltered early in pool play, but looked nothing but dominant in the final game against Seattle. Connecticut’s 21-13 victory put an end to Seattle’s winning streak, having won the past two qualifiers.


3Ball Omaha also claimed a road win after defeating NJ-based Ariel Slow and Steady by a score of 21-10 in the mens final. The two teams kept it close early and it looked like anyone’s game to start before Omaha put together a run of two-point shots that swung the game’s momentum.


2022 first-round pick for the Memphis Grizzlies David Roddy, a Minnesota native, laced up and joined his brother’s with team MN Panthers. Roddy, who played college ball for Colorado State, put in solid work in the paint, but the Panthers failed to advance out of pool play.


As the winning teams, Connecticut Force 10 and 3Ball Omaha each take home a $3,500 prize purse. The top four men’s and women’s teams also advance to the Red Bull USA Basketball 3x3 Regional Qualifiers later this year. These teams will also have a shot to play at the Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Nationals in 2023, which will be used to evaluate members for the USA men’s and women’s 3x3 national teams.
