LVFL Burdick named to 2023 USA 3x3 World Cup Team

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – USA Basketball announced today that the women’s 2023 USA 3×3 World Cup team is set to compete at the 2023 FIBA ​​3×3 World Cup May 30-4. June in Vienna, Austria, and LVFL Cierra Burdick is on this squad.

The team was selected by the USA Basketball Women’s 3×3 National Team Committee.

The 2023 USA 3×3 Women’s World Cup Team features Burdick, Cameron Brink, Linnae Harper and Hailey Van Lith. Jen Rizzotti, a longtime USA Basketball 5-on-5 coach and committee member, made her 3×3 coaching debut last summer as the USA Women’s Series and AmeriCup coach. Rizzotti, the president of the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun, will make her 3×3 World Cup coaching debut in Vienna.

Burdick, who competed on her first U.S. 3×3 national team in 2009, will compete in her third FIBA ​​Women’s 3×3 World Championship after representing the United States in 2014, when she won gold, and in 2022.

The US women open in Pool C. Their competition tips off on Tuesday, May 30 against Canada at 7 ET and Hungary at 9 A.M. Pool play ends on Thursday 1 June against Mongolia at 5 ET and the Czech Republic at 7:25 ET.

Should the USA qualify, the play-in round and quarterfinals are scheduled for Saturday, June 3, followed by the semifinals and championship on Sunday, June 4. Each match will be streamed live on FIBA’s 3×3 YouTube. For more information on the 2023 FIBA ​​3×3 World Cup, click here.

Unlike 5-on-5, 3×3 is played on half a court with a 10-minute game clock and a 12-second shot clock. Play is continuous as teams “clear” the ball behind the 2-point line after a made basket, defensive rebound or steal. The first team to score 21 points via 1-point field goals or 2-pointers from behind the arc wins; or if time runs out, the leading team wins.
