Jae’Sean Tate And B1G Team Win 3X3U National Championship

 

They don’t often get together to play post-season tournaments with former enemies, but when they do, they win …

It’s official — at least as much as these sort of things can be. Jae’Sean Tate and fellow B1G brethren Vincent Edwards of Purdue, Robert Johnson of Indiana and Nate Mason of Minnesota have taken home the title of the first ever 3X3U National Championship sponsored by Dos Equis.

The Big Ten team went undefeated through the entire course of the tournament, winning its group in pool play, then took down the SEC (despite the speed disparity) 21-19 in the quarterfinals to begin the elimination round.

In the semifinals, Tate and the Big Ten team beat the SWAC 20-15, then sealed the deal in the championship game, winning rather easily over the Big West Conference team 21-13.

For their efforts, the team took home $50,000.00 that they’ll all split, as well as bragging rights for winning the inaugural event.

Just how much fun was all of it? Well, just one look tells you all you need to know. Look at all the cash fly.
