FIBA 3×3: Lanete winner lifts Manila Chooks to Ulaanbaatar QF

Coming off a disappointing loss to Zavkhan, Chico Lanete and Manila Chooks bounced back, outlasting Sansar with a 19-18 victory to punch their ticket to the quarterfinals of the 2022 Ulaanbaatar FIBA 3×3 Super Quest, Friday at UB Palace.

Manila was down big early, trailing 7-3 before Lanete, Henry Iloka, and Dennis Santos joined hands in a spirited rally to eventually tie things up at 18-all with 5.8 seconds left.

In one swoop, the 42-year-old Lanete made one final burst to the basket for a tough layup to put Manila ahead. A miss by Batzolboo Borgil from deep sealed the quarter-finals slot for Manila.

Lanete ended up with seven points built on four points inside the paint, a deuce, and a free throw. Iloka, meanwhile, got six points and 14 rebounds while Santos added six points built on two deuces.

Anand Ariunbold paced Sansar with eight points.

Manila will take on Pool A’s second seed Yokohama (2-1) in the quarters at 2:25PM on Saturday with the winner facing Mongolia’s Zaisan.

Cebu Chooks, meanwhile, floundered to the third seed after falling to Ulaanbaatar, 10-21 (6:30).

Mac Tallo and Cebu were not able to recover from its 10-21 loss to Yokohama earlier in the day.

Ulaanbaatar’s Canadian import Steve Sir made it rain on Cebu, draining four deuces to end up with 10 points.

Delgernyam Davaasambuu, who scored the winner with 3:30 to spare, added six points and six rebounds.

Cold was Cebu anew, going just 5-of-21 from the field.

Brandon Ramirez got four points while Tallo and Zach Huang added three markers each.
