The BIG3 summer professional 3x3 league is officially in the middle of the season. They’ll be three games on Saturday night only as the remaining teams rest on a bye week. The teams on a bye are: the Enemies, Power, Trilogy, Tri-State, Ghost Ballers and 3-Headed Monsters.

How to watch?

All games will be on the CBS Sports Network (CBSSN) throughout the night.

Where and what time on July 26?

The first game will begin at 9 p.m. ET in the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Who is playing?

Killer 3’s vs 3’s Company 9 p.m. ET — Killer 3’s are one of three top teams standing at 4-1 as last week they defeated the still without a win Ball Hogs. They’ll face the championship runner-ups in 3’s Company who are currently sitting at 2-3. 3’s Company have a star in Andre Emmett who scored 23 points in the last game vs Bivouac. 3’s Company will have to stop plays like this from happening:

Triplets vs Ball Hogs 10 p.m. ET — Head coach Lisa Leslie and the Triplets hope to remain strong as their undefeated record was snapped facing the Power last week. Joe Johnson had 19 points with Al Jefferson behind him with 14. They’ll be facing the Ball Hogs who haven’t secured a win yet at 0-5. Triplets are a tough team, so the Ball Hogs will have a lot of work to do. If Brian Scalabrine can keep blocking shots like this, then the Ball Hogs may have some hope.

Aliens vs Bivouac 11 p.m. ET — With similar records, this game could end up a close one. The Aliens have a team of tall giants such as Greg Oden and Ryan Hollins who aren’t afraid to get down and dirty in the paint. Captain Josh Smith and Co-Captain Anthony Morrow will lead the Bivouac in keeping playoff hopes alive.
