Schenscher & Townsville in Mongolia

CLB3X3 Summer Series Champions Townsville are set to fly the Australian flag in Mongolia, taking part in the FIBA 3X3 Ulaanbaatar Challenger event from June 3-4. They will be led by NBL journeyman and former NBA center Luke Schenscher, whose side has aspirations of upsetting the world's best 3X3 teams who are set to take part in the event.

Mongolia. Could they have picked a more random country for a basketball tournament haha... to be fair though, the city and countryside does have a fair few basketball rings randomly hanging around probably from the old days of Russian rule

Can someone please explain this tournament to me; why is Australia playing in Mongolia when the FIBA 3x3 World Cup is due to take place in France later this month? Didn't Australia qualify?

Cheers

As I understand it this is a Townsville team not Australian team that won the CLB tournament to qualify for this. I think Boti said Peter Crawford played for them in that CLB tournament but his QBL team refused to release him for the Mongolia qualifier so they had to grab a fill in for this.

Zodiac, you're sadly very correct. PC was at the St Kilda tournament. The TSV Heat refused to allow him to play, they claimed he was required for the game against Ipswich, I think. My point to that is, PC has done more than enough for the basketball community of Far North Queensland. If id been him, id say im going. Great experience, and really what were they going to do as a club? Cut their best player? Not many that could replace him in the local community.

This is not a national team tournament - it is professional.

US$20k for the winners and qualification for the World Tour event in Japan.

Townsville earned selection after winning CLB3X3 Melbourne event.

PC was part of the team and the Heat would not release him to play and hence Garlepp stepped in.

I think it was due to the background music playing which breached copyright!

Official line from FIBA...

Due to technical reasons, the livestream of the Ulaanbaatar 3x3 Challenger had to be stopped. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

I'd hate for someone to ask PC what the actual story is... amazing that no one has thought of asking him for the real reason he didnt go

Australia's first team to take part in a FIBA 3X3 Challenger event returned home without a win, however they may have taken the next step required for the sport to help take off back home in Australia.

Mongolian experience set to drive 3X3 success
