Jeddah Becomes First Saudi Team To Win FIBA 3×3 World Tour Masters Title


On a historic day in the Czech capital, a Saudi team, Jeddah, defeated the world’s number one-ranked team Liman 20-15.

The match in Prague saw Nemanja Draskovic lead Jeddah with a game-high seven points in the final, capping off an outstanding individual effort throughout the weekend.

Aleksandar Ratkov who plays for Liman won a bronze medal in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. However, his search for a World Tour title this season was extended with his defeat.

Jeddah advanced to the final of the competition after defeating Lithuanian team Utena Uniclub 22-12, while Liman defeated Pirot 21-14.

The World Tour Masters circuit will next move to Abu Dhabi where matches are scheduled from October 29 to 30.

The Saudi team has risen to the top ten following their victory in Prague.
