PH rises to world no. 18 in FIBA 3×3 rankings


Chooks-to-Go’s successful hosting of the 2022 FIBA 3×3 World Tour Manila Masters last weekend not only brought glory to the company but also to the country.

Because of Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3’s continuous participation and hosting of FIBA 3×3 events, the Philippines has risen to no. 18 in the world.

Gaining valuable FIBA 3×3 points is important in this crucial stretch as the cutoff for qualification in both the Paris Olympics and the Olympic Qualifying Tournament is just 18 months away.Chooks-to-Go-FIBA-3x3-WT-Manila-Masters-1 PH rises to world no. 18 in FIBA 3x3 rankings 3x3 Basketball Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 News  - philippine sports news

“We already know the formula for us to reach the OQT having done so during the last Olympic cycle,” said Chooks-to-Go president Ronald Mascariñas. “Maintaining our rank will be relatively easy. The goal now is to turn our players into world-class athletes.

“Hosting and participating bring in points but winning FIBA 3×3 tournaments will bring maximum points,” he continued.

For the past two months, Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 teams have competed in three Super Quests which are level eight events.

The Philippines got 22,750 points in Dubai last March 31, 80,675 points for hosting and winning the Asia Pacific Super Quest last April 30, and 52,805 points for joining the Ulaanbaatar Super Quest last May 6-7.

The biggest points though came from the Manila Masters as it brought in 247,158 points, pushing the country from no. 27 last week to the top 18.

In comparison, a full PBA 3×3 conference composed of seven legs only brings in almost 35,000 points in total.
