FIBA 3×3: Pasig TNT does not advance to Macau WT MD


Pasig TNT could not advance to the main draw of the 2023 FIBA 3×3 World Tour Macau Masters after going 1-1 in the qualifying draw on Saturday at Macau New Urban Zone.

The Filipinos opened their campaign with a crushing 22-14 (8:49) loss to fifth seed Ulaanbaatar MMC Energy before outlasting Doha Expo 21-19 (overtime) to give them at least a shot of making it to the main draw.

However, Ulaanbaatar outclassed Doha with a 20-17 victory to join Beijing and Marseille in Pool D.

With debuting Serbian import Marko Dugosija leading the charge for the Mongolians, Ulaanbaatar broke a 12-12 deadlock midway through the opening tilt, going on a 6-0 spurt to take control of the game.

An Almond Vosotros deuce with 1:19 left stopped the bleeding for Pasig TNT but back-to-back twos by Otgonjargal Tsogt and Dugosija sealed the deal for Ulaanbaatar.

Pasig TNT went off to the races to start the second game, gaining a 19-11 lead with 3:48 remaining.

Needing to rack up the points in case of a tiebreak, Pasig TNT went two-point-hunting but to no avail.

Slowly, Doha chipped into the lead with Nedim Muslic knocking down a very contested two over the outstretched arms of Raoul Odou with 10 seconds left to send the game into overtime.

Vosotros did not allow any upsets to happen, sinking a deuce in the race to two extra time to give themselves a fighting chance.

However, Delgernyam Davaasambuu and Tsogt were just too dominant for Doha in the final game of the qualifiers.

Vosotros tallied a total of 13 points in the QD for TNT while Odou accumulated eight points.
