Wisconsin Badgers Men’s Basketball: Khalil Iverson to represent USA at FIBA ​​3×3 Basketball World Cup

Former Wisconsin Badgers small forward Khalil Iverson of Delaware, Ohio will represent the United States of America at the FIBA ​​3×3 World Cup 2022 in Antwerp, Belgium. The tournament runs from June 21 to June 26. The USA men’s 3×3 World Cup team begins on June 21 with clashes against Austria and Slovenia.

According to a press release, Iverson competed in the recent Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Nationals for The Four Friends (awwww, that’s a cute team name). He will be making his USA Basketball 3×3 debut as he has been playing professionally internationally and in the NBA G League since graduating from the University of Wisconsin in 2019.

Kidani Brutus (Bronxville, NY), Dominique Jones (New York) and James Parrott (Omaha, Neb.) are the other three players on the men’s team. As members of Team Harlem, Brutus and Jones won the 2022 Red Bull USA Basketball 3X National Championship last month.

The Americans are the defending gold medalists heading into the 2022 tournament, the event’s seventh edition.

Different from five-on-five, 3×3 is played on a half-court with a 10-minute game clock and a 12-second shot clock. The game is continuous, the teams “clearing” the ball behind the 2-point line following a basket made, a defensive rebound or a steal. The first team to score 21 points via 1-point or 2-point field goals from behind the arc is victorious; or if time expires, the leading team wins.
