Lagos-based DWB and Imoke Babes of Calabar on Saturday claimed the top spot for the boys and girls categories at the 2013 Uyo 3 x 3 Basketball Jam.
Both teams went home with cash prizes of N100,000 and N80,000 respectively.
The DWB side featuring Rosco Eze, Chigozie Ude and FIBA 3 x 3 ranked players Azuoma Dike and Godwin Ikonshul worked tirelessly to contain another FIBA 3 x 3 rated player, Victor Anthony who led Alalibo Rolland and Kingsley Asan of Rocker Stars of Lagos whom they defeated by 20 – 12 points to emerge champions.
Dike, who was also adjudged the Most Valuable Player of the championship which ran for three days, was a torn in the flesh of the Rocker Stars as they could not just stop him from shooting from any spot he found himself.
Though, the Rocker Stars of Port-Harcourt fought hard to win the title, playing without a substitute gave the DWB boys numerical advantage.
For Dike who had before now been voted the Most Valuable Player of the Calabar Carnival 3 x 3 held in 2012 expressed delight at the victory. He noted that he is happy with the opportunities that the event had provided him. Light Bearers of Lagos won the third place having defeated Word of Life team from Warri, Delta State.
