Kassius Robertson and Yante Maten as teammates? Playing for money? Like, this weekend? Okay, yes, I’m listening.
Robertson, the Tigers’ leading scorer during the 2017-18 season, will play alongside Georgia’s Yante Maten and Juwan Parker and South Carolina’s Frank Booker in the 3X3U National Championship — a three-day tournament held from Friday through Sunday at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio.
Robertson and the SEC team will compete against 31 other teams representing college basketball’s 32 conferences for a $100,000 prize pool. All participating players must be college seniors who have exhausted their collegiate eligibility. The winning team will receive $50,000.
Pool play begins at 6 p.m. Friday, and games will be broadcast on Twitter and ESPN2. The second day of play tips off at 10 a.m. Sunday, and the championship bracket begins at 1 p.m. Sunday.
You can apparently watch the games on Twitter here. An unexpected chance to watch Kassius Robertson play one more weekend this year! Cool.
Yante Maten is a good cook, and he's definitely not a fan of dating apps. He's also down in San Antonio for this weekend's #3X3U National Championship!— 3X3U National Championship (@3X3UHoops) March 28, 2018
