NY Harlem (USA) won the FIBA 3×3 World Tour Masters 2019 presented by Wingo on August 24, 2019.
The New Yorkers became the first U.S. team to win a Masters since Chicago won the Americas Masters in Mexico City nearly 3 years ago, on September 23, 2016.
In an all-American final, NY Harlem dominated their rivals from Princeton. Dominique Jones caught fire in the championship game. He scored 10 points on 6/10 shooting and was perfect from the line on his signature one-handed free-throws. The man known as ‘Disco Domo’ topped all scorers in Lausanne with 35 points and took home the MVP award.
NY Harlem’s first-ever World Tour title did not come without its share of sweat. The team from Big Apple won their first 3 games in the closing seconds on a Tissot Buzzer Beater.
Three weeks after Prague, it is the second time this season that Princeton loses in the championship game at a Masters. Former NBA player and World Cup 2019 MVP Robbie Hummel led his team in scoring and finished 3rd overall with 29 points.
In the individual contests, Vadim ‘Miller’ Poddubchenko (UKR) dominated the Pemsa Dunk Contest while Hamburg’s Malo Valerien took home the shoot-out contest.
