Morgan to play for Big Ten in 3X3U tournament

Juwan Morgan’s college career isn’t over yet.

The Indiana forward is headed to the Final Four in Minneapolis.

Morgan will play for the Big Ten in the second-annual 3X3U National Championship, an event that pits 32 four-man teams consisting of seniors from every Division I conference against each other in a three-day, 3-on-3 tournament at the Mall of America.

Morgan is the second Hoosier to participate in the tournament. Former IU guard Robert Johnson played a key role in the Big Ten’s championship run last April.

For players, the draw of the event is a $150,000 prize pool, where the champions will take home $100,000. The remainder will be paid out in $1,000 installments during pool play action.

The Big Ten squad will be comprised of Morgan, Wisconsin’s Ethan Happ, Minnesota’s Jordan Murphy and Nebraska’s Glynn Watson.

Pool play begins at 3 p.m. on Friday, with all games carried live on Twitter or ESPN2. The Big Ten will open pool play on Friday at 9:30 p.m. against the Ivy League.
