Ahmedabad Wingers beat Lucknow Ligers 21-10 in the finals to win the 3BL Round 2 Men’s Conference ‘B’ title


Chandigarh, 11th March 2022: Led by the India duo of Amritpal Singh and Vishesh Bhriguvanshi, Ahmedabad Wingers cruised to their second straight ‘Round’ title in Conference B of 3BL. ‘3BL’, the only 3X3 Professional Basketball League in India is backed by the Basketball Federation of India and the International Basketball Federation (FIBA). The third season is being played at the Hotel Wyndham Chandigarh Mohali from 8th – 21st March 2022 and is seeing participation from top national and international men’s and women’s 3X3 basketball players.

The undersized Ligers were no match for the Wingers anchored by the 7ft tall Amritpal Singh. The Wingers’ 21-10 Finals winning margin was identical to their pool stage victory over the same opponents.

In the early goings, Ligers tried to go toe for toe, trailing 6-7. But Wingers’ backup player Gurbaaz Singh Sandhu, who replaced the injured Rajan Sharma in the squad, hit two straight two pointers to put the game out of contention.

Thereafter the international duet of Bhriguvanshi and Amritpal completed the formalities of an easy double digit win.

“My team is good. It is not just about me. We have the most experienced Vishesh [Bhriguvanshi] who’s helped me a lot in playing both offense and defence. Our strategy is to play tough, put in the effort and win,” said Amritpal, who was named Most Valuable Player (MVP) for this Round.
