Back-to-back-to-back titles for Serbia.

BOCAUE, Bulacan --- The 2018 FIBA 3x3 World Cup had the same men's Finals from 2017.

Same result.

No. 1 Serbia beat the Netherlands again, taking a Final 16-13 win Tuesday at the Philippine Arena here.

Dusan Bulut carried Serbia to yet another gold, scoring a game-high seven points in an inspired performance. He was named tournament MVP.

Stefan Stojacic added another four while Marko Savic finished with three points.

World no. 1 Dejan Majstorovic, fresh from an insane game-winner in the semis, settled for two points.

For the Netherlands, it was Jesper Jobse that led the way with six points but it was not enough to win gold.

No. 2 Slovenia won bronze after beating Poland, 21-16.
