Derby 3x3 Champions

Derby College Trailblazers and Oaklands College were crowned champions at the EABL and WEABL Academy League 3×3 tournament at Manchester’s National Basketball Performance Centre on Wednesday.

Derby took the EABL title, going 3-2 in the pool stage before turning it on to knock off Canterbury, Myerscough then Oaklands 11-9 in a nail-biting final.

Oaklands came through as winners in the WEABL, going undefeated across the day. Winning Pool B with a perfect 4-0 record, the Wolves then beat JMA, Sheffield and CoLA in the final, with the showpiece producing a tense 7-5 final score that required OT to find a victor.

Neither winner from 2022 could defend their title, with Itchen coming ninth in the EABL standings and Nottingham also finishing ninth across in the WEABL.

The EABL’s three-point contest winner was JMA’s Harry Milbank, who knocked down an impressive 18 triples in one minute, whilst Manchester’s Josephine Vourliotis took the WEABL title, hitting 16 shots from beyond the arc.

Twelve EABL teams and nine WEABL teams battled each other in an opening pool stage before best eight in each category progressed to a knockout phase.
