The Philippines continued its rise in the FIBA 3X3 World Rankings after the sensational outings of Pasig Chooks and Balanga Chooks (1Bataan Risers) during the 2019 FIBA 3X3 World Tour Masters in Doha.
From number 32 after the Chooks-to-Go 3×3 Asia Pacific Super Quest, the Philippines jumped one spot to number 31 (1,806,820 points) in the Federation Rankings thanks to the country sending two representatives to the level-10 event.
“We are elated with this development but the work is far from over,” said Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 league owner Ronald Mascariñas.
For their fifth-place finish in Doha, Pasig Chooks rose from no. 51 in the world to no. 27 in the team rankings.
Figured in a tough grouping during pool play, Pasig routed home team Katara, 21-14 (8:08), before scoring a massive upset of now-world no. 2 Liman, 19-16.
In the individual rankings, Taylor Statham overtook Joshua Munzon as the top player in the country.
The 6-foot-6 forward (349,080) is now ranked as the 114th best 3×3 player in the world while Munzon (338,520) is at 120.
Bataan’s Alvin Pasaol cracked the top 150 as he is now at 148 with 308,680 points. Leonard Santillan completes the Filipino cast in the top 250 at 221.
