FIBA 3×3 World Masters
In what promises to be a blockbuster 3×3 World Tour opening match, up and coming Antwerp (BEL) will take on Liman (SRB), the world no.1 team. This match will be held on the 28th of August in Debrecen.
The Belgians recently took on Liman and won at the Lausanne Masters en route to a semi-final finish. The intense rivalry between these two teams will make this game fun to watch.
On paper Liman will have an advantage since Antwerp will be without one of their stars, they won’t have Rafael Bogaerts, instead, they’ll be fielding Bryan De Valck. They will however have new superstar Thibaut Vervoort. They face an unchanged Liman team.
