Our Alex Rivera recently traveled to Rome, Italy for the 3X3 Basketball World Championships, 15 and under! This was the first time that this age group competed in a world championship and they won 3rd place!
The Puerto Rico team made history when they won the game against England 20-21! They also defeated Czech Republic (13-9), Georgia (16-9), and Lithuania (21-9), the first day of the competition. In the following round, they were placed between the best eight teams after defeating Armeni (21-16)a, and then again against Holland (17-15), which secured their spot in the semifinals!
The squad was lead by Alex Rivera and it is composed by: Joseph Ocasio, Giovanni Santiago, Eduardo Peralta, and Alejandro Ralat.
Congratulations to all! We are very proud of your accomplishments and thank you for representing our country!
