Ub Huishan NE win FIBA 3×3 World Tour Edmonton Masters 2023


EDMONTON (Canada) – MVP Strahinja Stojacic scored 10 points in the final as Ub Huishan NE (SRB) continued their domination of the FIBA 3×3 World Tour 2023 season after claiming the first-ever Edmonton Masters on July 29.

The No.1 seeds won a record fifth straight Masters title to start the season when they beat San Juan 19-12 in the final.  Top-ranked player Stojacic splashed from downtown in an ominous start but San Juan hung in to keep it close. Luis Cuascut drained a two then unleashed a one-handed dunk to give San Juan a 7-6 lead.

This compelling final went into overdrive when Antonio Ralat hit a tough layup before Dejan Majstorovic answered with a splash from deep. But once again, Ub proved too good in the clutch with Stojacic sealing the result with a two.

Stojacic won his third Masters MVP this season after finishing top in player value (42) and overall scoring (40).

In the individual contests, Ulaanbaatar MMC Energy’s Steve Sir won the William Huff Shoot-Out Contest, while Dominic Gonzales claimed the City of Edmonton and Explore Edmonton Dunk Contest.
