PROVO, Utah – BYU basketball fans will get a few more chances to watch Alex Barcello as a collegiate player. This weekend at the Final Four in New Orleans will be a busy one for Barcello.

The 6-foot-2 guard will compete in the Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship as part of the Pac-12/WCC team called “Basketball After Dark (B.A.D.) Boyz” for a chance at winning $150,000.

Alex Barcello will be on a 3-on-3 team with WCC & Pac-12 All-Stars

Barcello joins fellow WCC players PJ Pipes and Josip Vrankick from Santa Clara and Colorado forward Evan Battey from the Pac-12.

The “B.A.D. Boyz” are in Pool C and will begin their quest for a 3-on-3 title on Friday, April 1 at 5:20 p.m. (MT) against a team of all-stars from the SEC and Southern Conference. Barcello and the B.A.D. Boyz will play two other pool games on Friday at 6:40 p.m. against the MEAC/SWAC team and then at 7:40 p.m. against the Horizon and Missouri Valley Conference squad.

How to watch the games

The games will be streamed on the @3X3UHoops Twitter feed. On Friday, the “B.A.D. Boyz” will play another three pool games at 10:50 a.m. (MT), 12:30 p.m., and 2:50 p.m. The last game on Friday involving Barcello’s team will air on ESPNU. ESPN2 will televise the semifinal and championship rounds on Sunday, April 3.

A total of 64 players are in this tournament, and all have declared that they will be pursuing professional basketball opportunities this upcoming season.

3-on-3 rules

The game rules are what you would expect from a traditional 3-on-3 game you’d play with your family and friends. Teams will compete on one basket on a single half-court and will be awarded one point for baskets inside the arc, two points behind the arc. The first team to reach 21 points or the best score after ten minutes wins.
