3-on-3 Basketball


3-on-3 Basketball is a Tier 2 event. The structure of play (e.g., round robin, single elimination) will be determined by the number of teams registered.


Desired roster size is five (5) players. Two (2) players are required to avoid a forfeit. One player from each team is designated as the team captain prior to start of play.


Start time is forfeit time: there is no grace period for players to arrive late. Two (2) game forfeits disqualify a team from further play.

Each basket is worth one (1) point. Games are played to (15) points; a 2-point margin is required. Winner is declared with either a 2-point margin or first to score (20) points.

After a point is scored, the ball goes to scored upon team, i.e., do not play make it, take it.

Following any loss of possession, the team gaining control initiates its scoring attempt from a point behind an imaginary line parallel to the base line, and tangent to the free throw circle, i.e., take it back behind the circle.

There are no free throws. There are no jump balls.

Each team is entitled to two 1-minute time-outs.

The first possession of the game is determined by a coin toss. In the event of a ball tie up, possession will alternate.

While an intramural staff member will supervise all play, during preliminary rounds, the offensive team calls fouls. Semifinal and final games will be officiated by athletic officers and/or intramural staff.

Any player charged with three (3) personal fouls is disqualified from the game. The NCAA governs all other rules.
