Due to massive rain and storm in the morning in Kaunas, the second day of FIBA Europe 3on3 had to be cancelled.

Despite the competition being cancelled, the courts were opened for the public during the afternoon when the weather recovered.

Anybody who was able to hit at least one out of three free-throws was rewarded with a Molten ball and those who were able to make three in a row got to see the Semi-Finals of EuroBasket in Kauno Arena.

More than 500 balls found new owners this way, as the public response was immense and people were queuing for the chance to win their EuroBasket ticket.

Despite low temperatures, around 2,000 people found their way to the FIBA Europe 3on3 and could experience the fun 3on3 brings to its participants.

On Saturday, both the adult competition and the U15 boy's and U12 girl's competition will take place.

The juniors can win tickets for the last game of the Lithuanian national team at EuroBasket 2011 against Greece on Saturday 21:00.

The adults play for € 1,000 in the men's and € 500 in the women's competition.

The show acts that were planned for Friday will also be present on Saturday with the Zalgiris dancers entertaining the crowd and the Lithuanian wheelchair basketball national team giving a demonstration of their abilities.
