The Arellano Chiefs took home the coveted 3×3 National Championship by dominating the Our Lady of Fatima University Phoenix, 42-24, Saturday afternoon, January 27 at the Vista Mall Taguig Activity Center to cap off an exciting day of hoops action.
Both teams qualified for the championship game by finishing with identical 4-1 win-loss records, good for the top two spots at the end of the elimination phase.
Arellano established a double-digit advantage over OLFU halfway in the Finals of the tournament and never looked back, as the Chiefs managed to be the last one standing in the six-team field. Michael Canete and Kraniel Villoria combined for the Chiefs’ 35 points.
Nikko Panganiban top scored for the runner-up OLFU with 13 markers, the lone player in double figures for his team.
