We’re already three weeks into the 2023 BIG3 Basketball campaign and it’s shaping up to be one of the best season in league history. This past weekend, there’s been dominant performances from not only teams but individual players as well. As we head into week four, everyone is getting a little better idea of what to expect from around the league. It’s early so there’s still a lot to prove but it’s getting more and more exciting as the season moves forward.
BIG3 Basketball: Top Week 3 Performances
Donte Green (Killers 3s)
Stats: 28 points, 12 rebounds
The Killer 3s are one of seven teams that carry a record of 2-1 after a dominating win over the Aliens in week three. Donte Green has been the most consistent player for the team so far this season. Last weekend’s performance was by far the best as he followed up a 19-point performance in week two with a stellar 28-point double-double, as he also had 12 rebounds. He was lethal from deep as he hit four triples and even hit a four-point shot. After dropping their first game, the Killer 3’s have won their last two and Green is the biggest reason why.
Jeremy Pargo (Triplets)
Stats: 26 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist
Jeremy Pargo has put two consecutive big-time performances together to improve the Triplets‘ record to 2-1 after losing their opening game. First, they beat championship favorites Trilogy after an impressive 31 points from Pargo in week two. Then this past week, he put up another impressive game after 26 points in a win against previously undefeated Tri State. Even with Joe Johnson on the team, Pargo has been the Triplets’ overall best player. If Pargo can keep this up and Johnson keeps doing what he does, this duo can lead the Triplets to another title.
Royce White (Power)
Stats: 20 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block
Power has looked dominant in both wins this season and this time around Royce White played a big part in it. After failing to reach double-digit points in the first two games, White bounced back in a big way with one of the best performances of the weekend. He’s one of four players in week three to put up 20 or more points. He put up 20 points with five rebounds and three assists. White also helped on the defensive end with a block. Power looks like a strong contender this season and White putting up numbers like this would make that argument even stronger.
Michael Beasley (3’s Company)
Stats: 17 points, 15 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks, 1 steal
For the third consecutive week, Michael Beasley put up a double-double in points and rebounds. This might be the best overall performance on both ends of the floor by Beasley. He put up 17 points, 15 rebounds, and three assists but dominated on the defensive side with three blocks and a steal. So far this season, Beasley leads the league in rebounds (36) and blocks (6) while being top five in steals (3). His play in week three earned 3’s Company their first win of the season and if he continues on this pace, he could be the front-runner for the MVP.
