Manila West’s retention bid for the Manila Masters title just got a lot harder.

After topping Pool D of the 2015 FIBA 3×3 World Tour Manila Masters, the Terrence Romeo-led squad will be going up against the mighty Longshi squad, which features 6-foot-11 Zan Zong on Sunday at Robinsons Ermita.


But if they make it past the quarterfinals, a semifinal date with Calvin Abueva and Manila North might be on the table, as the Philippine teams found themselves placed on the same bracket.


Manila North will go up against Kobe of Japan in its quarterfinal duel.

On the other bracket, reigning world tour champs Novi Sad will face Auckland in the curtain-raiser at 1:45 p.m., to be followed by an action-packed faceoff between heavyweights Doha and Ljubljana.

Aside from the 3×3 tournament, other activities slated for the final day of the Manila Masters will be the Smart Slam Dunk Final, featuring Rey Guevarra, Porter Mayberry, and Nyika Williams, and the PLDT Shootout Contest.

Here is the schedule of tomorrow’s quarterfinals:

1:45 p.m. Novi Sad v Auckland
2:15 p.m. Doha v Ljubljana
2:45 p.m. Manila North v Kobe
3:15 p.m. Manila West v Longshi
