I imagine Paige will be picking Pheesa's brain alot. Not about basketball ;)
but about Geno .

I would guess nicknames and mannerisms will be on top of the list. So Napheesa became "PHEESA" . My guess is Bueckers will become "BUCKETS"

Should be revealing to see Bueckers playing with pros. She played with rising sophomores this summer and was IMO the best player. I think she'll fit right in. 3X3 seems to fit her game.
I am assuming that the games are streamed?

There is supposed to be a livestream. We'll see if it's free.

Personally I think 3X3 is more fun to play than to watch. Maybe the fast pace takes getting used to. I think it's a great international game. There are a lot of teams that run out of talent once past their starters but who can compete in 3X3.

I'll be up at 8:30 to watch. It'll probably be the best BB we'll see for a month.

Unfortunately, games will be televised on the 'Olympic Channel' :(

This event is bigger than I thought. 16 teams (with France but no Canada),

The Olympic Channel? What the fresh hell...?

I wish organizers/promoters/committees would realize they’re doing the event a huge disservice by making it unnecessarily difficult to view.

I get the Olympic channel and I don't see any of the games scheduled for showing.

USA won easily over Dominican Republic 22-5. Napheesa and Hebard with 7 points each, Paige with 5 and Young 3.

Does not appear to be a livestream.

Edit:

I take that back. It is streaming if you deactivate any ad-blockers. Don't know if the basketball game was shown.
