UAAP 84: Cayabyab powers NU to sweep of women’s 3×3

CALATAGAN, Batangas — Three straight championships. 20 straight wins. Undefeated.

National University continued its UAAP 3×3 domination by outlasting second seed three-woman University of Santo Tomas, 21-18, in the Season 84 women’s Final for their third consecutive crown, Friday at the CaSoBe Resort here.

Needing just a point for the win, Camille Clarin took a deuce but missed. However, Tin Cayabyab was there for the stickback and the title with 1:01 to spare.

Tantoy Ferrer of the Growling Tigresses hurt her left knee in their semis matchup against University of the Philippines. She tried to play but limped throughout her 56 seconds on the floor against NU.

“Akin na ‘yun. Talagang nasa puso at isip ko na na kahit anong mangyari hindi ako mapapagod. ‘Yung last shot na ‘yun inaalay ko na rin ‘yun para sa teammates ko kasi deserved talaga namin ito,” said Cayabyab on her game-winner.

Clarin did it all with eight points, eight rebounds, five assists, and a block. Cayabyab added six points and seven rebounds.

Angel Surada and Ann Pingol completed the gold-blooded quartet of NU.
