Week 3 has arrived in Athletes Unlimited Basketball Season 2. This past week featured a half-court buzzer-beater by Jordin Canada, two comeback efforts by Team Smith, and the first “Elam Ending” (first to seven points in double overtime) in AU history in which Team Harrison spoiled Team Sims’ hopes of an undefeated week.

Taking the Gold spot for the second consecutive week is Odyssey Sims (3,042), who improved her captain record to 4-2 with two victories in Week 2. She leads the league in points (160) and assists (58), and is tied for second in steals (13).

In the No. 2 spot is NaLyssa Smith (2,734). Smith was a captain for the first time in Week 2 and led her team to a 2-1 record. Smith leads the league in rebounds with 72 caroms and ranks third in points with 135.

Naz Hillmon (2,675) moves into the No. 3 spot for Week 3. She posted a season-high 33 points on Friday evening and broke the single-game leaderboard points record tallying 834 – the previous record (790) was held by 2022 Champion Tianna Hawkins.

Kelsey Mitchell (2,581), who was a captain during Week 1 of the 2022 season, returns to the captain’s chair for the first time this year. Mitchell ranks first in 3-pointers with 22 and fourth in points (131).
