Can NU extend its dynastic rule to 3x3?
National University has long been the standard in UAAP Women’s Basketball.
The Lady Bulldogs are out to add one more feather to their already brimming cap in the league’s second-ever 3x3 Tournament scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at the Ayala Malls Feliz in Pasig.
Already having won five championships in a row in the five-on-five tournament, NU is nothing but determined to get back-to-back titles in the now-annual three-on-three event.
To do so, they are trotting out a fully loaded lineup of Finals MVP Jack Danielle Animam, Monique Del Carmen, Ria Nabalan, and Rhena Itesi.
Achieving the feat is easier said than done, however, as Far Eastern University is out to challenge them anew with Elaisa Adriano, Blanche Bahuyan, Claire Castro, and Valerie Mamaril. The Lady Tamaraws bowed to the Lady Bulldogs in the Finals of the Women’s Basketball Tournament.
Also putting up a fight will be Adamson University which will parade Kat Araja, Shellyn Bilbao, Rose Dampios, and Nathalia Prado.
Rounding out the field will be Ateneo de Manila University’s Zoe Chu, Katrina Guytingco, Lettice Miranda, and Mary Moslares; De La Salle University’s Joehanna Arciga, Kreecie Binaohan, Bennette Revillosa, and Charmine Torres; University of the East’s Cristine Cortizano, Princess Ganade, and Princess and Anne Pedregosa;
the University of the Philippines’ Noella Cruz, Cindi Gonzales, Stiffany Larosa, Lourdes Ordoveza; and University of Sto. Tomas’ Reynalyn Ferrer, Sai Larosa, Elondra Rivera, and Carolina Sangalang.
