Nine teams all set for inaugural WNBL 3×3

The WNBL 3×3 will hold a pool draw on Saturday for its inaugural tournament, where nine teams will see action.

The draw will be staged during halftime of the NBL semifinal match between Pampanga Delta and Taguig Generals on Saturday at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

“There are a lot of talents when it comes to women’s basketball in the Philippines. We don’t want to limit it to the 5-on-5 professional platform. Now, we are going to launch a 3×3 professional league,” said WNBL/NBL executive vice president Rhose Montreal.

The nine teams are as follows: Uratex Dream, Uratex Tibay, Swish, ­­­­­­Dreamers, Amazing, Quezon Women’s Basketball Team, Rizal Huskies, JJD, and Fourbees Hoopers.

Haydee Ong is the commissioner of the WNBL 3×3 league which will be regulated by the Games and Amusements Board. FIBA ranking points are also at stake.
