There were three tournaments last weekend, but only two with women's tournaments, none featuring Force X.

9 teams played in Chicago and Splash Sisters defeated Glo Time, which had the bigger name pros to win:

Only four teams in Memphis and the result of Just Hoop edging Tigers was probably what would have been predicted:

Two tournaments this past weekend.

San Antonio was the planned one and had seven teams. Four Oklahoma players made the trip and won two tough final games featuring relatively big name pros:

Red Bull added regional championship events and six teams played in New York. Kansas State played like they were back at home in the other Manhattan, beating Fordham for the championship as the other teams did not quite have the level of names that we have seen in other recent tournaments:

The season is winding down so six teams played in Atlanta with Oklahoma winning another one, this time over James Madison as most pros are otherwise occupied at this time:

There was a Force X branded team at the final event in Los Angeles, but they brought other Seattle-based players out with their regular players heading overseas. They lost to the team of Bay Area players. On the other side of the bracket, the LA Premier team was strong, but lost a close game to eventual champions Just Hoop:

Force 10 has four teams with their name this season including a collaboration with the Chicago Sky.

These were their teams that played in Chicago:
Chicago: Brittany Brown, N'dea Jones, Natalie Kucowski, Jordan Reynolds
Rain City: Japreece Dean, Keyona Hayes, Chanise Jenkins, Camille Zimmerman
Seattle: Linnae Harper, Haley Peters, Alexis Peterson, Breanna Richardson
Emerald City, Kiana Johnson, Whitney Knight, Lindsey Pulliam, Jessica Thomas

All four teams made the semifinals and it was Seattle over Rain City in the final.

A team of Duke players won the Raleigh and Charlotte tournaments.

I was oblivious to the FIBA 3X3 before the Olympics hype. The more I watch YouTube vids of the games, the more I am loving the sport. Its kinda like pickup 3 on 3 with more rules and refs. I love the speed of the game, the creativity and teamwork. Of all the games I've watched so far, I'm digging the women's better than the men's. They look slow by comparison. I realize that many factors go into what makes good teams, good games, etc. Just going by what I've seen so far. And yeah, seems like the women's approach is more team-centric defensively and offensively vs matchup heavy men's approach.

I also am liking 3x3 for a lot of the reasons you mention as well. In addition, it eliminates a lot of the BS I don't like in 5x5 such as endless foul taking and timeouts at the end of close games, the never ending complaining to the refs since there is not enough time for that and the elimination of cheap fouls just to stop a score. I'm thinking it could be a less injury prone sport because it is only half court and players are not charging up and down court at full speed and slamming into floor so often. That's just a guess on my part though.

I've seen some strong physicality from the teams that are more experienced overall in some of these competitions. But yeah I agree on a lot of you points also. The speed of the game cuts through a lot of the extra. Kinda wish we had those rules and refs when I was playing pickup 3 on 3. Cuz nobody EVER fouls in pickup. LOL!

Had my first look at 3x3 just now, watching highlights on Peacock.

I think the best thing about it is as mentioned above- the elimination of player bs. Lol.

If you like a very fast pace with virtually no stoppage at all- even after a made basket there is no "reset" time- you'll probably like 3x3.

Force 10 had 4 of the 5 teams in the Philadelphia tournament, but failed to win.

FIBA is having more national team events, including one this week with mostly non-Olympic teams, but Force 10 is sending four of their players to represent the United States.
