Day 3 of BWB Africa began with a Hoops 4 Hope life skills session focusing on HIV awareness, led by NBA Legends Dikembe Mutombo and Muggsy Bogues. Dikembe spoke with the girls about empowering women in Africa. The boys then played three games while the girls did skill development with WNBA Legends Ebony Hoffman, Ruth Riley and Clarisse Machanguana, followed by a game. After lunch, the girls had their 3-point competition and All-Star Game.

The last day of BWB Africa 2015 featured the boys All-Star Game and 3-point competition at Ellis Park Arena, after which all of the BWB Africa campers attended NBA Africa Game 2015. The first NBA game in Africa brought spectacular performances by Giannis Antetokounmpo and Luol Deng on Team Africa, and Jeff Green and Bradley Beal on the Team World side -- not to mention the surprise appearances from Dikembe Mutombo and Hakeem Olajuwon, who scored on a 'Dream Shake' that brought the crowd to its feet.

Team World won by a score of 101-97, but more important than the score was the fans’ enthusiasm about what was a historic event not just for the NBA, but for the growth of basketball on the continent. BWB Africa 2015 proved to be the biggest BWB camp yet and will leave a lasting legacy on the continent for many years to come.
