Third-Straight ‘3x3NL Tour’ Triumph on the Cards?
Ever since arriving in Netherlands nearly a month ago, Gurugram 3BL has been in red-hot form in the ‘3x3NL Tour 2021’ events. It has won both its previous two tournaments in Katwijk (24th July) and Heerenveen (31st July).
The victory at the 3×3 Pro Cup in Heereveen assured Gurugram 3BL a spot in the FIBA 3×3 World Tour Challenger event to be held in Utrecht on 19-20 September.
In other words, at tomorrow’s 3×3 Pro Cup in Utrecht, Gurugram 3BL will be playing for nothing more than pride and prize money, hoping to end their Netherlands sojourn on a winning note, before returning to India.
