We had sun, we had a beach and sea and… we had lots of high-level basketball!
The 3×3 Masters stop in Oostende proved to be very popular once again, as lots of teams came to the Belgian Coast to ball. The weather forecast wasn’t promising, but the storm stayed away, so we had a great day.
First, we need to give a shout-out to our NBA 2K shoot-out winners, Milan in the youth competition and Angelo in the 18+ competition. They went home with a copy of 2K17 after shooting the lights out.
In the morning it were the local Ostend Flyers who took away the head price in the U13 category, outgunning the Black Devils. In the U15 field, the Airhoopers came out on top.
In the afternoon, Ballout84 came out on top in the U18 tournament, while the Donkey Ballers were the cream of the crop in the 18+ Recreational field. In the Women’s categories, Wolfpack, with Belgian Cat Kyara Linskens, won the title, outlasting the U18 Rockets in the Finals.
The exciting 18+ Elite Finals were won by The Chiefs, outlasting German side Der Stamm with 16-15. Jonas Foerts of The Chiefs hit the game winning jumper.
Check out the epic pics from our great photographer King below:
The view over the place where it all went down, Wapenplein in Ostend.
The German team of K1X Ambassadors made sure they would be seen on the court.
Ok, show us how you really feel Frank!
Kyara Linskens, bronze medalist in Prague, showed up for some 3X3 action in Ostend!
Our man Milan winning the shoot-out contest in the morning! Now go play some 2K son!
That’s making sure you get some lift on your jump shot. Not bad!
Damn son, ain’t nobody out here with cooler sunglasses than you!
Oh boy, that defender just got nutmegged. Great pass right here!
Due to the slippy underground and the heat, we had some trouble with the court at times..
There were some really cool chicks performing an epic dance-off next to the courts though!
And if you need to get something done, the best way to do it, is as one team!
Major thanks to our referees, who have the chemistry on and off the court..
Angelo showed some guts in the 2K Shoot-out finals in the Afternoon, but was so kind to give away his prize to the other finalist.
Jonas Foerts of the Chiefs showed off at 3X3 Masters Oostende and lead his team to victory.
In the end, it was all smiles and we already look forward to next weekend. Finals weekend in Antwerp! Be there!
