The quartet of Snudda CollinsMarquesha DavisMadison Scott and Ayanna Thompson, went 3-1 over the weekend in Colorado. 3X Nationals serve as an evaluation for selection to various 2023 USA Basketball 3×3 men’s and women’s national teams, including the 2023 FIBA 3×3 World Cup, set for May 30-June 4 in Vienna, Austria, and roster spots for USA Basketball World Tour, Women’s Series and U21 and U23 Nations League teams.
Oklahoma jumped out to a 5-0 lead, until Scott broke it open for the Rebels. Ole Miss worked to close in on the Sooners, as a deep ball from Collins brought the Rebels within two at 8-6. Another deep ball from Collins provided Ole Miss its first lead of the day to go up by one at 13-12 with under four minutes remaining. The Sooners fought back to regain the lead by two with under a minute remaining, yet Scott fired back with a deep ball to force a tie at 16 all. However, Oklahoma secured its victory at the charity stripe to defeat the Rebels, 18-17.
