3 Person Basketball
- Games are played on half courts
- Players will begin by shooting for possession of the ball
- Points are counted as one point for anything inside the three point line and two points for shots made outside the three point line.
- If a point is scored possession reverts to the other team—no ‘make it-take it’ scenarios
- Games are played best two out of three to 15 points, with the third game being played to 5 points, if the first two are split.
- To win a game a team must be ahead by at least two points. (unless the Time Limit has been reached. See Time Limit procedure below)
- Players will call their own fouls, travels, double dibbles, and out of bounds. If there is a dispute about a call it is a jump ball and possession reverts back to the team that did not receive last possession
- First possession determined by shooting for the ball
- TIME LIMIT PROCEDURE
- We will try to play all games out without applying the following criteria, but when necessary to complete play of late starting games, we may have to:
- For a second game, with a needed time linit, if a team is leading by 2 points when time is up, they win that game.
- If that results in a split of games, the tie breaker game will be played to 3 points only.
- If time runs out during the third game, it will be played to 5 points with the winner only needing to win by 1 pt.
- 3 on 3 will begin during the undergraduate winter III term, thus there will be irregular scheduling due to additional teams joining when spring semester begins.
- Games are played from 8:00pm-11:00pm in the Stoller Center gym or the field house on Mondays and Wednesdays
