These selections are based on a panel of experts.
1. Triplets (No Change) (5-1)
Triplets remain at the top of the rankings for the 6th straight week despite losing to Killer 3’s in a 2019 championship rematch. Triplets captain Joe Johnson led the team with 18 points and 9 rebounds in the loss to Killer 3’s. The Triplets just couldn’t handle the energy that the surging Killer 3’s brought to the game. Triplets remain the top team in the BIG3 and are well positioned to make the playoffs in the Bahamas.
2. Killer 3’s (+2) (4-2)
After being ranked 4th last week in the power rankings and upsetting the Triplets, the Killer 3’s move up to #2. The Killer 3’s have won 4 straight games in the BIG3 this year and do not plan on slowing down. Donte Greene led the team last week with 23 points and 7 rebounds and was efficient all game for Killer 3’s. The Killer 3’s are starting to click at the perfect time this season, and will be fun to watch down the stretch in the playoff race.
3. Trilogy (+3) (4-2)
Trilogy bounced back after the week 5 loss without Jarret Jack and win in Chicago against the Ghost Ballers. Trilogy captain Jarrett Jack missed the action in Milwaukee, but was ready for all of it in Chicago. Jack finished with 24 points and 4 assists in the game. Trilogy has much better offensive flow when Jack is in the lineup. Look for them to make some noise down the stretch this season. With two weeks left in the regular season, the 3 and 4 spots are going to be a close one to watch.
4. Tri-State (+3) (4-2)
After losing a tough one to Power in week 5, Tri-State managed to pull out a big win against the Ball Hogs in Chicago. Earl Clark was unstoppable in week 6 leading the team with 20 points and 6 rebounds. Jason Richardson also had 18 points and 9 boards in the game. Tri-State is looking poised to stay in the playoff mix down the stretch this season. They are getting consistent contributions from the whole lineup, so they can beat teams in many ways.
5. Ghost Ballers (-3) (4-2)
The Ghost Ballers missed having the energy of Mike Taylor on the floor in week 6. The Ghosts only got scoring from three players and it wasn’t enough to really challenge Trilogy. Ghost Ballers also couldn’t contain Jarrett Jack who finished with 24 points. Ricky Davis led the way for Ghost Ballers with 14 points and 4 rebounds. Chris Johnson and Alex Scales each finished with 10 points in the loss. Ghost Ballers will look to bounce back in week 7 to get back into the playoff mix.
6. 3 Headed Monsters (+2) (4-2)
The Monsters lost a close one to the Triplets in week 5, but bounced back in week 6 and beat Enemies 50-43. Reggie Evans led the way with 20 points and 14 rebounds in the game adding a double-double. Monsters Captain Rashard Lewis had 13 points and 10 rebounds. The 3 Headed Monsters are another bubble team, with two weeks left these next games are going to be exciting.
7. Ball Hogs (-4) (3-3)
The Ball Hogs ran into a tough Tri-State team in week 6 and came up short. Tri-State beat the Hogs 50-47. Leandro Barbosa led the team with 25 points and 3 assists. Jodie Meeks had a big role in this game adding 18 points and 6 boards in the loss. The Ball Hogs are still right in the mix if they finish the season with 2 wins. The next two games are must wins if the Ball Hogs want to have any chance of making the playoffs.
8. Aliens (+1) (2-4)
The Aliens have won 2 straight and do not plan on slowing down. Aliens get a big win in week 6 and beat Power 50-45. Andre Owens was electrifying with a second straight 4-point shot to win it. Owens finished with 14 points and 7 rebounds. Jason Maxiell and Greg Oden both pitched in 12 points. The Aliens are looking to knock off some playoff hopefuls and cause some havoc in the standings.
9. Power (-4) (3-3)
Power had a tough loss to Aliens. Andre Owens stole the show by hitting a 4-Point shot at the end to win it. Power Dušan Bulut led the team with 15 points and 9 rebounds and was efficient all game. Derrick Byars also had 13 points and 9 boards. Power missed the physicality that Royce White brings to the game and came up short. With 2 weeks left Power need to make some big moves if they want to make it back to the playoffs in the Bahamas.
10. 3’s Company (No Change) (2-4)
3’s Company got a big win in week 6 beating Bivouac 50-44. Drew Gooden led the team with 22 points and 8 rebounds. Mario Chalmers had 15 points and 7 assists in the game. 3’s Company needs to secure these next 2 wins and hope for some upsets at the top of the standings. 3’s Company will be getting back their leading scorer from the first half of the season, Jeremy Pargo, for week 7. Pargo will be looking to get straight back into the mix and get his team to finish 4-4 for the 2021 season.
11. Enemies (No Change) (1-5)
Enemies lost to the 3 Headed Monsters in week 6 and will stay second to last entering week 7 power rankings. Elijah Stewart continues to show us he is a star in this league. Stewart finished with 20 points and 3 rebounds and was able to bring back the Enemies in the final stretch. Stewart has been the only consistent scorer for Enemies over the recent weeks. Isaiah Austin also chipped in 15 points, but it wasn’t enough to take down the 3 Headed Monsters. Enemies will have to find more scoring options entering week 7.
12. Bivouac (No Change) (0-6)
Bivouac has had a tough year in the BIG3 with injuries and missing players. The Bivouac lineup in week 6 was made up of 5 totally different than what they started the season with. Bivouac entered week 6 against 3’s Company and put up a close fight in the end. Tony Criswell was a beast down low, finishing with 19 points and 15 rebounds. Criswell added a double-double his BIG3 debut and will be a force to reckon with going into week 7. Bobby Brown also added 14 points in the loss. Bivouac have been statistically eliminated from playoff contention. Bivouac will be playing for pride down the stretch and they don’t want to finish winless this season.
