Grand Rapids Drive assistant coach Dion Glover and the Trilogy team went undefeated in the inaugural BIG3 summer basketball league and raised the trophy high as champions on Saturday in Las Vegas with a 51-46 victory over the 3-Headed Monsters.
McCants, the former North Carolina Tarheels star, scored 22 points in the finale to secure the Championship MVP award after finishing the season third in the scoring race.
Trilogy owned the league and the awards podium. Mahorn won Coach of the Year, Martin earned Player Captain of the Year, White took home Defensive Player of the Year and Harrington was named Too Hard To Guard.
The BIG3, a 3-on-3 league comprised of former NBA players, looks like the ultimate Top Men’s court. Imagine the top court winners of all the Gus Macker World Tour tournaments coming together at the end of the season to play it out for the ultimate prize of national champs. Now add the NBA experience. That’s the BIG3.
Started in part by rapper-turned-actor, Ice Cube, the league made its way to arena locations throughout the United States before descending on Las Vegas for the championship round, including the third place game, on the same day as the much-anticipated Conor MacGregor-Floyd Mayweather boxing match.
