Lausanne impress again on Day 1 at FIBA 3x3 World Tour Europe Masters 2020

4 Sep 2020

DEBRECEN (Hungary) - Lausanne (SUI) had a perfect 2-0 record on the opening day of the FIBA 3x3 Europe Masters on September 4, 2020.

THE TEAM

The 14th team in the world Lausanne continued to play well in Debrecen for the return of the FIBA 3x3 World Tour. Just like Tuesday at the Hungary Masters, the Swiss team once again beat Liman (SRB), the number one team in the world, led by 9 points courtesy of the marksman Marco Lehmann. But unlike 3 days ago, Lausanne followed up with a second W to secure a spot in the quarter-finals on a Tissot Buzzer Beater from long range from Westher Molteni. Molteni and Gilles Martin combined for 17 points in the win against Ulaanbaatar MMC Energy (MGL).


Also undefeated

Two more teams had a clean sweep on Day 1:

THE GAME

Riga vs. Piran (SLO) was an absolute nail-biter and the Slovenians had 2 game points from behind the arc in the last seconds. But the Hungary Masters MVP Karlis Lasmanis was clutch in the money time. He took Anze Srebovt one-and-one and buried the step-back just inside the arc. The man known as 'Batman' and his 'Robin' sidekick Nauris Miezis both had 6 in the game.

THE PLAYERS

Ever heard of the player value? This is the 3x3 metric for a player’s statistical contribution on the court.
