Joshua Munzon rises to top of PH 3×3 rankings


For leading the Pasig-Grindhouse Kings to the top of two of the four legs in the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 President’s Cup, Joshua Munzon has been ranked the top 3×3 basketball player in the country.

This is according to the FIBA 3X3 Play Rankings for the Philippines, which were updated on Saturday evening.

Munzon, a lanky 6-foot-4 swingman, scored a total of 96 points in 12 games played. He has accumulated 79,380 ranking points from FIBA.

Joining Munzon in the top three are Pasig teammates Taylor Statham and Troy Rike.

Statham, who is the third-best scorer in the league with 91 total points, accumulated 72,220 points while Rike tallied a total of 77,590 points.

Pasig will enter the Grand Finals of the President’s Cup as the top seed with 360 total points from the first four legs. The knockout tournament – that will have a winner-take-all PHP 1M as the grand prize, plus a ticket to the FIBA 3X3 World Tour Doha – takes place on Sunday, March 31 at the SM Fairview Events Center.

Completing the top five are 1Bataan Risers scorer Alvin Pasaol (56,390) and floor general Anton Asistio (54,750).

The Risers are the second-seed for the Grand Finals.

Pasay Voyagers’ Jaypee Belencion (45,620), Pasig’s Dylan Ababou (45,070), and Pasay’s Arvin Tolentino (45,040) round out the top eight.

The Philippines is currently ranked as the 39th federation in 3×3 basketball with 1,267,280 points. For the men’s side, the country is placed at 47th with 2,626,895 points – 12th in Asia.

If ever the country qualifies for an Olympic Qualifying Tournament in 3×3 basketball, FIBA has mandated that the top 10 3×3 players in the country will compose the national team pool.
