RJ Abarrientos brings home U23 Shootout gold

Two days after the Philippines was booted out of the inaugural FIBA 3X3 U23 World Cup, one of the young Filipinos from the team was able to strike gold.

FEU Baby Tamaraw RJ Abarrientos took home the U23 3×3 World Cup Shootout Championship, Sunday afternoon in Xi’An, China.

The 19-year-old finished with nine points, tied with Russian Aleksandr Antoniokovskii. Abarrientos had a better time to secure the title as he finished six seconds faster.

Abarrientos struggled in the first two racks, only knocking down three baskets. He then heated up late, only missing two of his last eight attempts.

Germany’s Laura Zdraveska had eight to win bronze, while China’s Yu Qi knocked down seven.
