On sunday of course, we had the main event: the 3X3 Masters Finals. All the best teams from all the past tournaments got an invite and came ready to earn their stripes at the Groenplaats. Eventually, there could only be one big winner in each category. Let’s check out who won in each tournament:

U13: Soba Nation

U18 Girls: Open Run Fab 4 (NDL)
18+ Women: Chicks Got Game
18+ Elite Men: HW Wild Snakes (POL)

Now for the shooting contest, we have to give props to Emma Bell. She won the contest, hitting 10 threes in the process. She earned herself a playstation 4 Pro, with a copy of NBA 2K17.

The winner of the Dunk Contest was Christiaan Grives, a.k.a. Batman, with a sick dunk over Belgian Cat Kyara Linskens. Now let’s take a look at the best pictures of this weekend:

 Once again, we had the wonderful opportunity to have the Groenplaats as a setting for our 3×3 Masters Finals.

Ladies, Have you met Daniel? He’s a courtmoni half of the time, but also a pretty succesful model the other half!

When all you really want to do, is be a pokémaster, but you gotta go hoop on a 3X3 Masters tournament instead…

If we have learned one thing MC Lightning has said during the tournaments, it’s that the ref is always right!

MAJOR SHOUT-OUT to the great KING CHAN
He put in a LOT of time (and less sleep)  to get you all in those beautiful pictures, so give him some credit.

Lastly, shout-out to the 3X3 Masters crew who put in the work every tournament, just so everybody can play ball.
(Some of them are missing on this pic, but we didn’t forget about you!)
