Technical-Tactical Performance Indicators During the Phases of Play in 3x3 Basketball
Keywords:Observational methodology, Notational Analysis, Small Sided Games
The current study aims to analyse technical-tactical performance indicators during elite 3x3 basketball games. To do so, the start, development and end of 315 attacking phases were examined using an observational tool during four games of the 3x3 Men's World Cup 2017. The results showed that efficacy from the 6.75 m line and the fast breaks made after defensive rebound were the performance indicators that best discriminated winning and losing teams. During set plays, the best percentages of efficacy were achieved with group-tactical situations involving the three players on court, and mainly with the use of off-ball screens. Coaches when preparing competitions and training drills can use these findings to increase team and player’s performance.
