Stanford at 3x3 Nationals

STANFORD, Calif. – Lacie and Lexie Hull, Estella Moschkau and Anna Wilson will represent Stanford at the 2019 USA Basketball Women's 3x3 National Championship this weekend in Las Vegas.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. The USA 3x3 Nationals will tip-off with preliminary games from 3-10:30 p.m. PT on Friday, May 3. The preliminary round will continue from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on May 4, and, after teams are seeded based on preliminary records, the knockout round will begin Saturday at 6 p.m. The women's championship game, which will be streamed live online at usab.com/live, is set to tip at 10 p.m.
In addition, the tournament will also serve as the 2019 USA Basketball Women's 3x3 National Team trials, as all eligible athletes will be in consideration for selection to the 2019 USA Women's 2019 U.S. Pan American Games 3x3 Basketball Team.
The eighteen teams in Las Vegas are comprised of three squads that qualified out of 3x3 tournaments over the past year, 13 teams representing some of the top NCAA Division I programs across the country and two teams that will be split between eight athletes invited to attend a two-day minicamp prior to the USA Women's 3x3 Nationals.
Lacie Hull played in all 36 games for Stanford during her freshman season, started 30, and averaged 4.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and a team-high 1.5 steals. She had seven steals in a win over American on Nov. 24, the fourth-most in a game in Stanford history and second among the nation's freshmen this season. Hull was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week on Dec. 24 after she put together a brilliant performance in Stanford's 95-85 road win at No. 9 Tennessee, scoring 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting, including 4-of-5 from deep. In early March, she was voted to the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team and also earned Pac-12 All-Defensive honorable mention accolades.
Lexie Hull, who landed on the Pac-12 All-Freshman honorable mention team, was named the league's freshman of the week on March 4 following a weekend in which she averaged 9.0 points and 4.5 rebounds in Stanford's wins at Washington State and Washington. She was 7-of-12 from the floor (.583) and 4-of-8 from deep (.500) in the victories.
Hull burst onto the scene with 11 points and 11 rebounds in the season opener against UC Davis, becoming the first freshman in Stanford history to record a double-double in her debut. She averaged 5.6 points and 4.7 rebounds in 27 games this season.
Moschkau came off the bench in 22 games as a sophomore and was 5-of-10 from the floor, including 4-of-7 from deep. She's made seven of her 14 career 3-point attempts at Stanford.
Wilson averaged 2.7 points and 1.5 rebounds as a junior, made three starts and appeared in 32 games. She scored a season-high 11 on 4-of-7 shooting in Stanford's Sweet 16 victory over Missouri State on March 30. In Las Vegas in Nov. 2017, Wilson came off the bench against No. 9 Ohio State and poured in a career-high 21 points in 19 minutes, making 7-of-8 from behind the arc. She became the 10th Stanford player to make seven 3-pointers in a game and the first since Bonnie Samuelson in Feb. 2015.
Olympic fans will see the launch of a new basketball discipline with the inclusion of 3x3 in 2020. The exciting and fast-paced game officially was unveiled in international competition at the 2010 Youth Olympic Games and has since become a fan favorite at FIBA 3x3 World Cup events. Played on a half court with a 10-minute clock, and a 12-second shot clock, the first team to 21 points, or the team in the lead at the end of regulation, is the winner.
Held annually since 2012, this year marks the eighth edition of the USA Basketball 3x3 National Championships, and the first time the nationals will be held outside of Colorado Springs, Colorado.
