Crumpton and the MAAC split pool play at the 3X3U Tournament

In the opening day of the 3X3U Tournament in San Antonio, the players from the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference went 1-1.

So they get a pay day.

Jermaine Crumpton from Canisius hit the winning free throw for the MAAC in their 21-17 win over the Summit League. They lost in their second pool-play game, 21-18, to Northeast.

The inaugural event features 32 teams of graduating college seniors playing in a three-on-three tournament with the first team to 21 earning the win. Each team, which has four players, earns $1,000 for each pool play win.

St. Bonaventure's Matt Mobley was playing for the Atlantic 10 and University at Buffalo's Wes Clark for the Mid-American Conference. Their opening games were late Friday night into early Saturday morning.

Pool play continues on Saturday with the championship bracket on Sunday.
