If you aren't familiar with the 3X3U tournament that is starting up this season, it's basically a 3X3 tournament for college seniors that will be played in San Antonio during the weekend of the Final Four. There will be a $100,000 prize pool. Today the Player Selection Committee was announced and it is basically a who's who of College Basketball Media that also includes Gonzaga's own Matt Santangelo representing Hoopfest.

Tomorrow they will announce the early season nominees for the WCC along with some of the other conferences and I think it's safe to put J3's chances of being on that list at 100%. I wouldn't be surprised to see Silas on there as well.

Impossible, as both Silas & J3 will be playing with Gonzaga as a Final 4 participant.

That said, fun concept for some lucky seniors and chance at winning some dough. Depending on teams/players, I'd probably tune in.

Cool idea, but I really hope there are no Zags playing in this...

Because they will be busy with the Final Four.

J3, Melson, Jock Landale and Henry Caruso (SCU) are the early season nominations from the WCC. If they stayed on the same team they would be formidable.

I just heard about this on Mark Titus podcast. This is a cool idea and I'm pretty sure we won't get to see Silas or JWIII because they will be too busy taking our team to back to back final fours.

Here are the final nominations: Silas, J3, Jock and Henry Caruso. Same as the nominations from December. Hopefully the Zags wonít be participating but itís a fun consolation prize.

We'll find out at some point this week whether Silas & Johnathan will be participating.

"The Committee’s final selections will be revealed through a series of studio shows streamed live on Twitter (https://twitter.com/3X3UHoops) once a day from Monday, March 26 through Thursday, March 29."

Welp there goes my interest in the tourney lol.

I don't see how they'll defend some of these teams and with no Zags... eh....

Guessing JW3/Melson just want to focus on getting ready for their pro careers.

When your "big" is a 6'6" perimeter player -- ouch.

I was really hoping for a Zags/Gaels team-up that could bring our fans together. Of course, I'll be rooting for Calvin and Cullen, but it would have been cool to have our league's best. I guess I can understand why some might opt out. Maybe it will turn out to be fun to watch and more players will want to participate in the future.

I would pay to see a 5-on-5 full-court War of the Conferences, where each conference's All-League First Team actually takes the court and plays one another.

Nash - PG
NWG - PG

I think I'd take Stockton here somewhere.

That was a struggle. I chose Nash because he had a little more success while in college (team wise) than did Stockton. You couldn't go wrong with Stockton, though.

no Zags on the WCC's 3x3U team... concept sounds good overall but if I wanted to watch a WCC team with multiple SMC players and no Zags I would have tuned in to the NIT.

I'm not sure this team would even place at Hoopfest, and I'm not kidding...

Hmmm seem to be doing fine 3-0. 3,000 bucks in bank and quarterfinals Sunday

Disappointed no zags though

I know you guys barely care but WCC goes 3-0 to advance to quarterfinals.

Please don't include all of us, sideshow.

Color me impressed.

Go WCC!

Always was impressed by Caruso. Reminded me of Kyle Collingsworth a bit. Tough, nose for the ball, great passer, can shoot.

After watching some games, a team made up of snipers from the three point line that can rebound well would do well in this format.

They'd do well in *any* format, if we're being honest. See: Villanova.
