THE Fiji 3x3 basketball team is optimistic of giving a good competition to the other competing teams in the 2017 Pacific Mini Games which starts in Port Vila, Vanuatu.

National basketball team manager Kenneth Taliu said the players had prepared well for the games.

"It is 10 minutes matches and it is played only on half side of a court. The reason we chose 3x3 basketball is because it became an Olympic Games sport in 2020," he said.

"We have a competition where players treated the matches as buildup to the games."

The basketball competition starts on Monday , December 11 at the Korman Sporting Complex and it will be run for the two days.

"Our national teams are ready for the games."

The official opening ceremony of the games will take place tomorrow at 8pm (Fiji time). The the men's football started on the weekend.
