BARANGAY Ginebra legend Robert Jaworski, Sr. will award the championship trophy and the P250,000 cash prize to the champions of this year’s Ginebra 3x3 Tapang ng Tatluhan basketball tournament on July 7 at the Araneta Coliseum, Quezon City.
The Ginebra 3x3 Tapang ng Tatluhan is a nationwide grassroots basketball program initiated by Ginebra San Miguel and the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) to help scout for the best basketball talents around the country.
Now on its fourth year, the tournament is even more significant as the 3x3 basketball event is now officially included in the 2020 Olympics. With the bigger prize money, Ginebra San Miguel hopes to reach out to even more basketball communities and give young players the opportunity to further improve their craft.
A total of 16 teams representing Manila, Cebu, Davao, Caloocan, Quezon, Iloilo, Bulacan, Cagayan de Oro, Tarlac, Cavite, Samar, Rizal, Pangasinan, Batangas, Bataan and Pampanga will compete in the National Finals on July 5 at Robinsons Place Manila.
Also on tap is a slam-dunk competition and 3-point shoot-out, with winners each getting P10,000 in cash and a trophy.
To celebrate 40 years of Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, a meet-and-greet with players Stanley Pringle, LA Tenorio and Mark Caguioa will be held at the exhibit area, which features the jerseys of the popular basketball franchise.
