3-on-3 $100K tournament at the NCAA Final Four
« on: February 05, 2018, 09:15:41 pm »

32 teams composed of seniors not playing in the NCAA Final Four. The players will get paid based on how far they make it in the tournament.  All 32 Division I conferences get their top 4 (non Final Four participating) senior players. (four players per team, but only 3 play at once) Will be broadcast on Twitter and ESPN2.

Who are the top 4 SEC seniors that should play?

They don't have to be from same school? I highly suspect Macon will be invited just based on his sec player of the week accolades. Barford would be a pretty awesome 3 on 3 player though too.

No, that is the whole point. They will select the top 4 players per conference and put them together. (3 players on court plus one sub)

Well, they might not be the overall top 4 players because they might not want like 4 guards on a team; Maybe they mix it up with forwards/guards.

I kind of wish they were also including players leaving early for the draft that were underclassmen, but maybe that might be too hard to determine since a player could theoretically decide not to come back and play another year, but not if they had been paid.

I highly suspect Macon will be invited just based on his sec player of the week accolades. Barford would be a pretty awesome 3 on 3 player though too.

I was thinking Macon for sure.

Yante Maten from UGA seems like he might be a lock as well.

This could really turn into a pretty big deal if conference politics stay out of it. 
Curious to see what the conferences use to determine the top 4 players.

In the article it says there is a selection committee of sports writers picking the players. I don't believe the conferences have anything to do with it. This is a private group paying for it.

Barford, Macon, and Yante Maten would be a pretty sweet 3-on-3 team.

And I say that knowing Chiozza doesn't score as much as say Macon/Barford, but just from the few games I've seen, Chiozza is extremely quick and can dish the ball as well as anyone in the league.  I figure ball skills and one-on-one ability and speed would be pretty important in a 3 on 3 game.   With that said, I think Barford should also get on that team.

Who would be your 4th? (1 bench player allowed per the rules)

Good question. I like Chiozza a lot, but I would pick Macon and Barford over him because of size and their superior scoring ability, and I don't really think you would want three guards and one big.

Ultimately, I would want my fourth guy to be a rangy athlete who could shoot a bit.

So, clearly: Dustin Thomas. :-)

Roberson is a great choice. I had forgotten about him since we haven't played them this year.

So I would take Barford, Macon, Roberson, and Maten.
