Cameron Brink Selected to 3×3 Olympic Team

On Wednesday, three-time Stanford All-American and Los Angeles Sparks rookie Cameron Brink was named to the 2024 USA Basketball 3×3 Women’s National Team, which will compete at the 2024 Olympic Games Paris.

Brink will play alongside Cierra Burdick, Rhyne Howard and Hailey Van Lith. The four athletes played together in the FIBA 3×3 Women’s Series Springfield Stop.

Brink was named MVP of the 2023 FIBA 3×3 Women’s World Cup in Vienna, Austria after leading the USA to win gold. 

3×3 basketball emerged as an Olympic event in 2021, when the USA’s Kelsey Plum, Stefanie Dolson, Jackie Young, and Allisha Gray won gold in Tokyo.

3×3 is played on a half-court with a 12-second shot clock and a 10-minute game clock. There is continuous play, as teams “clear” the ball behind the 2-point line following a made basket, defensive rebound or steal. The first team to score 21 points by 1-point field goals or 2-pointers behind the arc is victorious; or if time expires, the team leading wins.

The 3×3 basketball competition for the Olympic Games is set for July 30 – August 5 at Place de la Concorde.
