NEW YORK, NY – The BIG3, Ice Cube’s highly anticipated 3-on-3, half-court basketball league, makes its television debut tonight at 8:00 PM ET on FS1. Gus Johnson, Jim Jackson, Michael Rapaport and Rachel Bonnetta called the action from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., during yesterday’s thrilling first day of competition. As part of tonight’s telecast, Ice Cube talks with Johnson about the league, how he got the idea, and why it will be successful.

Before the action tipped off, Ice Cube, Rapaport and players from the BIG3’s Ghost Ballers made a surprise stop at New York City’s The Cage on West 4th Street and crowned a 4-point shooting champion.
