Jaworski to fete Ginebra 3×3 champions

Barangay Ginebra legend and former Sen. Robert Jaworski, Sr. will award the championship trophy and the R250,000 cash prize to the champions of this year’s Ginebra 3×3 Tapang ng Tatluhan basketball tournament on July 7 at the Araneta Coliseum, Quezon City.

The Ginebra 3×3 Tapang ng Tatluhan is the first-of-its kind 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 3×3 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. The final two teams will move forward to the championship round.

Aside from the main 3×3 tournament, a slam-dunk competition and 3-point shoot-out will be held during the National Finals. The top dunker and top scorer will each win a R10,000 cash prize 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 various jerseys of the popular basketball franchise.
