MADDOX '11 TO REPRESENT TEAM USA AT PAN-AM GAMES IN PERU
After closing out the U.S.'s first FIBA 3x3 World Cup title last weekend in Amsterdam, Princeton alum Kareem Maddox '11 has been named to the U.S. team at the Pan-Am Games near the end of July in Peru. The three-day event is packed with games. Play will open July 27 against Venezuela at 5 p.m. and Brazil at 9 p.m. before continuing July 28 against Puerto Rico at 4 p.m., Argentina at 7 p.m. and the Dominican Republic at 10:30 p.m., all ET. All elimination play will take place on July 29. The top four teams will compete in semifinal games at 11 or 11:30 a.m., with the third-place game set for 1:30 p.m. and the gold-medal game at 2:30 p.m. The fifth- and sixth-place teams will play for fifth at 12:30 p.m.
Maddox will have three new teammates for the event, playing alongside Dominique Jones, Sheldon Jeter and Jon Octeus. It's the first time 3x3 basketball will be played at the Pan-Am Games, which are held every four years and were in Toronto in 2015.
