After dropping their last pool game against Monaco (MON), Liman switched gear and beat the top 3 teams in Slovenia in a row, starting with Piran in the quarter-finals, Kranj in the semi-finals and eventually, Ljubljana, in convincing fashion (21-13).
The 25-year-old Stefan Kojic was named MVP of the event after a dominating performance in the final and a 3rd place overall in the scoring list.
It is Liman's second Challenger title this season after Ulaanbaatar 2 months ago.
This means the young Serbian team gets a chance to compete in a third FIBA 3x3 World Tour Masters this season (in Debrecen on August 31 - September 1) after finishing 5th in Saskatoon and 3rd in Utsunomiya.
Because Ljubljana were already qualified for the Debrecen Masters (based on ranking), surprise third place Monaco also earned a ticket to Hungary.
Monaco is a patchwork of 2 former Team Paris players (Anthony Christophe and Kevin Corre) and 2 Slovenian players, including former Ljubljana player and World Tour 2013 winner Rok Smaka.
A total of 16 teams from 10 different countries competed in the heart of Ljubljana, including 4 of the 10 best teams in the world: Ljubljana (2), Liman (SRB, 4), Piran (SLO, 6) and Kranj (SLO, 9).
