Obviously I am biased but this is a fun team.

#1 Evan Battey, F, Colorado
#2 PJ Pipes, G, Santa Clara

#4 Alex Barcello, G, BYU

As an alumnus of both Santa Clara and the University of Colorado, I can obviously get very behind this team.

Evan Battey is a tremendous man:

Won their first game. Barcello is really really good when he is not being double teamed every play.

They went 3-0 on Day 1.


I haven’t watched a game, but 3v3 strikes me as perfect for Josip and plays to his advantages as a crafty and patient forward who is better starting squared up to the basket. I would pick him for a 3v3 team any day over pretty much any non-Gonzaga forward from this season.

Nashty…my younger son is a Boulder frosh. Mechanical Engineering major. Loves it there.

Josip and PJ did really well… went 4 and 3 but lost in the elimination round… Barcello contributed It was fun to watch…
