Kozhikode, 31st March, 2016: Devagiri Warriors took the boy’s title, beating Marian 13 to 8. Providence College, Kozhikode took the girl’s title as they beat Presentation HSS 14 to 9 in the finals here at NBA Jam, which requires participants to play a shorter version of full court basketball. It is also the largest 3-on-3 College Basketball competition, for the age group 14 to 24, to have ever been held in India. It completed its Kerala leg at the Devagiri College and CMI Public School, Kozhikode and was organized by NBA India.

3-on-3 Ball

The 3 man game with 3 players on each team, playing for a duration of 6 minutes on half the basketball court. This shortened version of the game serves as a great starting point for beginners because it incorporates the same tools and skills that are used in regular 5 v 5 basketball. It is also the most preferred format played by kids and adults alike on playgrounds around the world. The national federation hopes to use the NBA Jam platform to promote the game. The 3 on 3 game is a perfect way to do this since it engages the player a lot more immediately and can potentially be a lot more fun and less rigorous.
