The 3D program would like to thank the Chinese Taipei Basketball Association for their hospitality, the participating national teams for their upmost professional approach and competition, the media companies for the publicity, and the phenomenal basketball fans and people of Taipei, Taiwan.
This tournament would not have been a success without the 3D players and staff (Athletic Trainer Kathleen Da Costa, Video Director Devin Robins, Manager Jeff Lamb, and Head Coach Kyle Julius) for contributing their work, time, and efforts needed to keep us focused on-and-off the court, and perform at a level that won us the championship. Also, Congratulations to 3D William Jones Cup Canada team and tournament MVP: Diego Kapelan!!
