Six teams have made it past tough battles to make it this far and have punched their ticket in the National Finals.
Due to the quirky nature of the 3×3 rules, the competition has seen its share of thrilling finishes beginning with the University of the Visayas holding off University of San Jose Recoletos 47-43 to take the Visayas Leg.
This was followed by another close contest in South Luzon, when the visiting Trace College managed to topple the host squad University of Nueva Caceres, 51-45.
The close winning margin trend went on in the Mindanao Leg when Southern Philippines College were able to eke out a 46-44 victory over Southern City College.

Metro Manila was the last stop for the Regional Qualifiers, with Our Lady of Fatima University defeating Colegio de San Lorenzo, 50-48.
