Actually, it was defense, something Arike didn't much

bother with if I recall correctly her last 3x3 games. Erin Boley, who some feel lacks defensive ability, seemed to be constantly trying to cover Arike's man, as well as her own. But that was then, Arike has learned the importance of defense.

Anyway, Sam and Aliyah kept intercepting passes on the perimeter to feed players, often Sam, inside. All of these four really concentrate on defense, before even getting to college.

is important too. Some say that was Erin's issue. Besides 3x3 half-court being a hell of a lot different than 5 on 5 team defense where you have to get back and find people.
