Following the Successful conclusion of the AdaMark Foundation 3X3 Hoops For Girls Championship in Abuja, the Nigerian Basketball Federation has showered encomiums on the organiser, AdaMark Foundation For Girls for putting together the inaugural 3X3 Basketball format competition in country at the package B of the Abuja National Stadium.
The 3x3 tournament which comprised of 3 females and 1 male on each team had Team Hawks go home with the N200,000 cash prize winners after they defeated the Abuja All Stars who took home a cash prize of N100,000 as losing finalist. For coming third, Team One Win Academy got N75,000 while Titan Basketball Academy despite finishing 4th got N50,000 for their exploits.
Speaking after Final match, the NBBF President, Mr. Tijjani Umar said the Federation will support individuals like AdaMark Ogbole, CEO AdaMark Foundation For Girls who have initiatives to take Nigerian Basketball the next level.
'We as a Federation have shown that we are open to accommodating any meaningful programmes that add value to basketball in the country, that is why we are here and we are ready to support and encourage more individuals to come forth and add whatever value they feel they can add to the growth of the Game'
' What we have seen today is a landmark event because this is the first official 3X3 event in Nigeria particularly for Girls. AdaMark Foundation for Girls, have extended their level of purpose and drive because we are very accustomed to their Basketball Camp for girls, but this time She has expanded from just a camp to a competition to engage women and give them a level playing field to compete against each other and the guys also. ' He added
The CEO of the AdaMark Foundation For Girls, Mrs AdaMark Ogbole said it is she was elated by the turn out and was motivated to set up the competition due to the lack of opportunity for Girls express themselves in a competitive environment.
' First and formost the 3X3 basketball format is a rising trend in basketball across the world and the Women folk often times get little opportunity to express themselves, that is why I decided we play the No Barriers 3X3 basketball championship for Women. Although so they don't say we are driving gender inequality we decided to tweak it with 1 male in each team of 4 Girls'.
AdaMark Ogbole, wife of FIBA Statistician, Obande Ogbole promised not to get tired even though the tournament was sponsored solely by her foundation, and hoped to expand the tournament and run it for many years to come.
'This is just the beginning for us, though it is never easy to be a sole sponsor, we hope to get partners on board to drive this tournament to make it bigger next year and our for Girls empowerment because, I believe we (females) can achieve equal feat with the men folk, if we are given the opportunity and the needed support'.

"This is the 3 on 3 championship recognised officially by the NBBF as the governing body in charge of the game in Nigeria. What was held earlier in Lagos was organised by an arm of Zone 3. And the federation throws it's weight behind this because it is in line with our vision".
The 3 on 3 is now the newest biggest trend in basketball development in the world and is easier to maintain, manage and organise with its own set of rules," he revealed.

"We are glad that the federation's support has given the tournament authencity, authority and necessary backing. Women need to get involved in sports and that is why we have come with this initiative".
" Because we Intend to be gender friendly we shall have a male in every team. This is to carry them along for gender equality. We are also giving chance to girls who can play the game but who do not have the money to be exposed to the world,' she added.
The NBBF President, Tijjani Umar again reiterated that the federation will continue to give support to private individuals and corporate organisations with noble ideas to instill a sense of direction for girls.
