Lincoln University at the World 3x3 University League

The Lincoln University 3x3 Basketball teams have safely touched down in Xiamen, China, and begun preparations for the start of the FISU 3x3 World University League Finals – which commenced Thursday 14 September.

Hype has certainly begun to increase for the two teams following both the men’s and women’s teams from LU winning the NZ Championship in April this year
