ALittleLady87 was a member of the inaugural USA Basketball E-National Team and helped Team USA claim the 2020 FIBA Esports Open II North and Central America Conference championship last December. She was the only female to participate in either of the FIBA Esports Opens in 2020, before also taking part in the NBA 2K League’s second “Women in Gaming Development Camp” in January 2021. 76ers GC drafted Dre (No. 4 overall) and UnderRatedGoat (No. 39 overall) in last month’s 2021 NBA 2K League Draft.
“I’m excited that Dre and UnderRatedGoat have the opportunity to compete in the Three for All Showdown,” said 76ers GC Head Coach Jeff Terrell. “It will be their first NBA 2K League event and will provide them with valuable experience heading into Season 4. I’m also very happy to have ALittleLady87 representing us as well. She is a very talented center that I had the privilege to work with at the NBA 2K League’s Women in Gaming Development Camp and with the USA Basketball E-National Team.”
As the presenting partner of 76ers GC’s team at this year’s NBA 2KL Three for All Showdown, Saint Joseph’s University will receive brand integration on 76ers GC’s Twitch channel, Twitter and Instagram throughout the tournament, along with a post-tournament Q&A featuring Coach Terrell, ALittleLady87 and her tournament teammates discussing the Three for All Showdown and the importance of female representation in gaming. Set for release on the team’s social media channels, this Q&A will also feature an exclusive 76ers GC season preview ahead of the NBA 2K League’s upcoming Season 4 this spring.
In addition to a share of the $25,000 prize pool, the winning team will have the opportunity to make a charitable contribution to one of a select group of community organizations.
