Cedrick Ablaza-led Big Boss Idol takes down Golden League Manila, advances to Elite League

Big Boss Idol defeated Dasma Ballers 2, 21-16, to capture the 3×3 Golden League Manila 2018 crown on Sunday at the Ayala Circuit Mall in Makati City.

The team of Cedrick Ablaza, Rhoy Cayanan, Jhapz Bautista, and Bhabap Sta. Maria took home USD 3,000 for winning the championship, while also earning the right to represent the Philippines in the SINA 3×3 International Elite League slated November 13 to 17 in Beijing, China.

The Dasma Ballers went home with USD 2,000 for finishing first runner-up, while Metro Star Realty took second runner-up honors for a USD 1,000 cash prize in the tournament with Allan Caidic as commissioner and Mediapro Asia and SINA as organizers.

Big Boss Idol reached the finals after beating guest team Aba Prefecture of Tibet, 21-13, to arrange a championship match against Dasma Ballers 2, who defeated Metro Star Realty, 20-11, in the other semifinal bracket.

League organizers are now looking forward to staging another edition of the tournament, with plans to also bring the event in major cities outside Manila.
