    Well Filipinos love basketball, so organizers won’t find it hard to find contestants for this event. Interesting about the 3×3 format, not as common as the regular game or the 2×2.

    Its awesome when a huge brand like Under Armour conducts such awesome sports events for students! Basket ball is not yet a big sport here in India.

    Under Armour hosting local sports tournament is cool. It’s also a good way to reach out to people and spread awareness about the brand.
