Following the excitement of the BIG3 Draft in Las Vegas last weekend, where all eight teams finalized their five-man rosters, the BIG3 has released the full 2017 season game matchups. Each Sunday this summer, BIG3 will bring competitive 3-on-3 half-court basketball to a different city throughout the country, including basketball hot beds Brooklyn, Charlotte, Tulsa, Philadelphia, Nashville, Dallas, Lexington (Ky.), Los Angeles, Seattle and Las Vegas. Fans will have the opportunity to experience four high-energy match-ups and witness over 40 of the sport’s most skilled competitors battle for the title of 2017 BIG3 Champions.
Charlotte’s Spectrum Center will host the BIG3’s second weekend on Sunday, July 2. Tickets will go on sale on Saturday, May 13, at 10 a.m. at spectrumcentercharlotte.com and ticketmaster.com, the Spectrum Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets or by phone at 800-745-3000.
The rosters feature a number of players familiar to fans in Charlotte and the Carolinas, including several former Hornets/Bobcats players. The four back-to-back games being played at Spectrum Center include Corey Maggette’s Power taking on Stephen Jackson, Larry Hughes and the Killer 3s. Also, former UNC star Rashad McCants and Trilogy will face Kwame Brown, former UNC Charlotte standout Eddie Basden and the 3 Headed Monsters.
