MANILA, Philippines—Pasig Chooks failed to sustain its phenomenal start and bowed out of the 2019 FIBA 3X3 World Tour Masters in Doha, Qatar after a quarterfinals loss Friday night.

Pasig, which upset top-seeded Liman the day before, couldn’t conjure the same magic in the knockout quarters, falling to Riga Ghetto, 21-15, in a frustrating showing.


Riga Ghetto pulled away on a 4-0 run from a tie at 13-all, pouncing on the Filipino side which was already in penalty with 3:04 left to play.

Joshua Munzon and Taylor Statham, two of the Philippines’ top 3×3 players, had five points apiece in the loss to the Latvian side.

The inaugural Chooks to go Pilipinas 3×3 champions are going home with two wins in their name.
