Team USA & Team Crowe Win Qualifying Tournaments for 2017 USA Basketball 3x3 National Champisonships

SALEM, OR - Saturday, August 6, 2016 - Champions were crowned in the Men's U18 and Men's Open Qualifying Tournaments for the 2017 USA Basketball 3x3 National Tournaments. These qualifying tourneys were played under FIBA rules, which include a :12 shot clock, different check-in rules, and different scoring that add up to a fast-paced exciting brand of basketball.

In the Men's U18 contest, Team USA used some hot shooting from Zach Reichle (Wilsonville HS '17) to overwhelm We Can't Shoot, 18-8.

In the Men's Open contest, meanwhile, Team Crowe's size overall and strength proved to be too much for Team Roos in an 18-14 championship game win.

ONG Hoopla's representatives will be competing in a field of 12 teams at nationals. Should either team advance, they will become the USA Basketball representative in the FIBA 3x3 World Championships.

Will Lathrop Coming to ONG Hoopla XVIII from Africa!

SALEM, OR - Monday, July 11, 2016 - Will Lathrop is like many basketball lovers in the Great Pacific Northwest: Each year he plans his summer, partly, around ONG Hoopla, Oregon's biggest and best 3x3 street basketball event held in front of the State Capitol Building in Salem.

Since 2005, Lathrop has been coming to ONG Hoopla. This year, he is making the trip to Salem from Africa, where he currently is honing his game in Uganda.

His biggest worry? Given his elaborate travel schedule to make it to ONG Hoopla, Lathrop was a bit concerned about his game times, so he emailed ONG Hoopla to see if his Division IV team could be accommodated in some minor ways.

Done deal. See you soon, Will!
