Part Of Four-Player Ivy League Team
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Blake Reynolds' memorable senior season will continue at the Final Four. Reynolds, who captained the Bulldogs to Ivy League regular season and tournament championships, has been selected to participate in the Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship scheduled for April 5-7 at Minnesota's Mall of America.
Reynolds is one of four players selected from the Ivy League. He will be joined by Princeton's Myles Stephens, Cornell's Matt Morgan and Brown's Obi Okolie.
The tournament is comprised of all-star teams of seniors, who have exhausted their collegiate eligibility, representing all 32 Division I conferences. The winners will earn the right to compete in the 2019 USA Basketball 3x3 Open National Championship later this spring.
Reynolds started 29 games this season for the Bulldogs and was third on the team in scoring at 11.1 ppg. He finished fifth in the Ivy League in field goal percentage (.546) and averaged 15.0 points as the Bulldogs knocked off Princeton and Harvard in the Ivy League Tournament. In his outstanding career, Reynolds appeared in 111 games and scored 970 points.
All games of the Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship will be carried live on Twitter or ESPN2. Pool play will begin at 3 p.m. ET on April 5, with 24 games streamed live exclusively on Twitter. Pool play will continue on April 6 at 9:30 a.m. ET with 24 more games streamed live exclusively on Twitter. Round of 16 and quarterfinal games will be streamed live exclusively on Twitter at 10:30 a.m. ET on April 7, with semifinal, consolation and championship games televised live on ESPN2 later that day at 3 p.m. ET.
Returning to call all the action throughout the tournament will be the voice of FIBA 3x3 basketball, Kyle Montgomery, with Robbie Hummel of ESPN and Tate Frazier and Mark Titus of The Ringer's One Shining Podcast providing color commentary and sideline coverage.
The setting for the second annual Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship will be unlike anything the 128 players have seen when they take to the half-court inside Mall of America, the most popular tourist destination in Minnesota with more than 40 million visitors each year. The Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship will be staged in the Rotunda at the Mall, which hosted the first WCW Monday Nitro in September 1995, and will be just the second live sporting event to be broadcast in the Mall's history.
