Chandigarh, 12th March 2022: Led by the Indian-origin duo of Inderbir Gill and Bikramjit Gill, Gurugram Masters claimed their second ‘Round’ title in Conference A of 3BL. ‘3BL’, the only 3X3 Professional Basketball League in India is backed by the Basketball Federation of India and the International Basketball Federation (FIBA). The third season is being played at the Hotel Wyndham Chandigarh Mohali from 8th – 21st March 2022 and is seeing participation from top national and international men’s and women’s 3X3 basketball players. 

Masters beat Machas 21-17 in the finals

The finals was an enthralling game of runs, as Gurugram Masters –the defending champions from Season 2 – built an early 7-1 lead. Bangalore Machas – with all four of its members having played on the Indian national team – fought back to trail within one, 6-7. 

Thereafter, Masters went on another 5-0 scoring spree only to see Machas claw back, courtesy Himanshu Sharma’s back to back two pointers. 

Throughout the game, an intense battle ensued under the basket, between forwards Bikramjit and Machas’ Arvind Arumugam. Eventually, Bikramjit prevailed, stealing the ball from Arumugam to ice the game with an emphatic dunk. Bikramjit would also be named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) for this round.

This was the second meeting between Masters and Machas in this very same round. Earlier in the league stages too, Masters had beaten Machas 21-19, to top their pool.

“All the players feel very good to get an opportunity to both watch and play in a professional league after a very long time. It will be good for all the Indian team players if this [3BL League] continues,” said Bangalore Machas’ Himanshu Sharma.

About 3×3 Basketball

Akin to the T20 version of cricket, 3×3 basketball is one of the fastest growing urban sports in the world. 

Compared to traditional 5×5:

  • 3×3 needs only a half-court and six players. 
  • It’s a 10-minute game. 
  • Highest score in 10 minutes or first team to score 21 points wins. 
  • Three-pointers are awarded two points, and two-pointers are awarded 1 point. 

3×3 is not only FIBA’s second official discipline but was played for the first time at the Tokyo 2021Olympics, and will also be included in the Commonwealth Games – Birmingham 2022, Asian Games 2022 and the Paris 2024 Olympics.
