Week 1 was composed of an exhibition game for teams to develop chemistry among players and one regular season game. Although it's
early, there are several teams and players that look like they'll be a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming weeks. Defending champs
Team 1 have several players back from last year's squad and look like a solid bet to return to the 3 on 3 title game. Team 8 (Hilton) appear to
be the main threats to the 3 on 3 crown ; however keep an eye out for an undersized Team 5 squad led by the dimunitive Nathan M. who can
make threes from anywhere on the court.
.After two weeks, two teams (5 and 8) stand atop of the standings. Team 8 features a balanced attack, where they have four players who can
go off for 15+ points at any time. In a battle of the possible championship, Team 8 squeaked out a three point win against Team 1 in a thrilling
game. Team 5 had timely three point shots as they went an undefeated 2-0 for the week. Although 1-2, Team 3 is a squad to look out for
down the stretch. Team 6 sits at 0-3, but with more time spent together and further developed chemistry, they may be in the thick of things
come playoff time.

eight three point shots

offensive rebounds. Sean is a big part of Team 8's undefeated record.
Week 3 Recap:
Team 8 had an impressive showing with two victories putting them solely in first place after three weeks,including a victory over team 5 giving
them their first loss of the season. So far, team 3 has been a bit of a disappointment considering the talent on the squad. We still have two more
weeks to crown a champion however! Despite a winless record, team 4 is showing signs of improvement week to week. Team 1 at 4-1 played very
well this past week with two convincing victories.
