BIG3 Basketball League 2018 Season Schedule and Full Team Rosters

PUBLISHED June 20, 2018 | News

The second season of the BIG3 Basketball League begins Friday at the Toyota Center in Houston.

The three-on-three league’s regular season takes place over eight weeks at different venues before the playoffs begin August 17 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

Barclays Center plays host to the championship round August 24, but before we can even talk about that, the eight teams must focus on their Week 1 opponents.

Trilogy won the inaugural championship, and the core led by former NBA players Kenyon Martin and Al Harrington is back in search of a repeat title.

Trilogy In Search Of Repeat

Trilogy comes into the second season of the Big3 with plenty of pressure to keep up its winning streak after capturing the title as an undefeated team a year ago.

Fifteen-year NBA pro Kenyon Martin is the captain of the team, and he is joined in the frontcourt by Harrington, but while they are the big names on the Trilogy roster, they aren’t the only important parts.

Former Tobacco Road rivals Dahntay Jones and Rashad McCants are valuable backcourt pieces. McCants, who was the first overall pick in the 2017 Big3 draft, starred in the championship game with 22 points against the 3 Headed Monsters.

Defensive Player of the Year James White and Dion Glover round out the six-man roster coached by former NBA big man Rick Mahorn, who played for Detroit, Washington, Philadelphia and New Jersey.

Trilogy opens the 2018 season against Tri-State, which made some improvements to its roster by adding Amar’e Stoudamire and Nate Robinson to a squad captained by Jermaine O’Neal.

 

Lieberman Leads Revamped Power

Nancy Lieberman, who most recently worked as an assistant for the Sacramento Kings, takes charge of Power for the team’s second season.

The change on the bench with Lieberman wasn’t the only move made by Power between seasons, as only two players from the inaugural campaign are back for 2018.

Captain Corey Maggette and co-captain Cuttino Mobley are the only returnees, and they’ll be joined by Glen “Big Baby” Davis, Chris “Birdman” Andersen, Ryan Gomes and Quentin Richardson.

Power has a heavy frontcourt presence, but it’s going to need to get the most out of the scorers on its roster in order to improve on its 4-4 record from a year ago.

In Week 1, Power faces former team member DeShawn Stevenson and Ball Hogs, who are captained by Brian Scalabrine.
