LAUSANNE (Switzerland) - Ub Huishan NE (SRB) won the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Lausanne Masters 2022, presented by Yuh in the Olympic capital on August 20.
The Serbian squad won their fourth straight World Tour event of 2022 after the Utsunomiya Opener, the Manila Masters and the Prague Masters after defeating home favorites Lausanne Sport (SUI) in the final (21-15) in front of a sold-out venue by Lake Geneva.
The final was a rematch of the first game of the event, when Lausanne Sport ended Ub's 14-game winning streak on the World Tour. In the final, Ub switched gear.
The number one 3x3 player in the world, Strahinja Stojacic, had 6 points and a monster block in the final and was named MVP after leading all scorers in Lausanne. His teammate Dejan Majstorovic added a game-high 8 points in the final and won a record third title in Lausanne. The pocket-sized Gilles Martin (5ft. 8in, 1.73m) scored 7 in the losing effort for Lausanne.
This was the 9th edition of the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Lausanne Masters.
In the individual contests, Miroslav Pasajlic (Liman Huishan NE, SRB), took home the Maurice Lacroix Shoot-Out Contest, while Joel Henry (GBR) won the Chiefs Dunk Contest.

Exciting, urban and innovative, 3x3 is inspired by several forms of streetball played worldwide and is considered the world’s number one urban team sport. Steered by FIBA, games see two teams of three players face off on a basketball half-court.
It was played successfully for the first time in international competition at the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore and since then has benefited from the launch of a yearly professional circuit for men and women (World Tour and Women’s Series respectively) and national-team competitions.
3x3 made its Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Games.
