Uratex Dream ends JiaGuel’s Cinderella run, takes WNBL 3×3 Leg 1

Uratex Dream ended its first foray in the 2021 Women’s National Basketball League 3×3 unblemished, defeating JiaGuel in the final, 21-10 (8:57), Sunday at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando Pampanga.

Uratex Dream, composed of Kaye Pingol, Tina Deacon, Alyssa Villamor, and Shanda Anies, went 6-0 in the tournament — including a 4-0 sweep of Pool B. They took home P15,000.

In the final, JiaGuel had no answers for Kaye Pingol, who finished the game with eight points — including the leg-winning deuce with 1:03 left in the game.

Anies had five points while Deacon and Villamor got four points each in the final of the level three FIBA 3×3 tournament.

Guytingco and Buendia had five points each for JiaGuel in the final.

Still, it was a good run for JiaGuel, who banked P10,000.

In the semis, the quartet of Boom Moslares, Buendia, Guytingco, and Pam Payac, stunned previously-unbeaten Uratex Tibay, 15-14.

Down 13-11 with 53 seconds left, Maslares knocked down a booming deuce to knot things up. Sam Harada put her side up by one with 14 seconds remaining after a power move inside that set up the dramatic finish.

With the clock winding down, Payac converted on a clutch corner deuce with 1.3 seconds left. A desperation deuce by Ford Grajales afterward fell short to punch JiaGuel’s ticket to the last stage.

Moslares had eight points against Uratex Tibay while Guytingco added three points.

Uratex Tibay still brought home P5,000.
