Lady Macbeth Riots top Manila Hustle 3×3 Women’s Invitational

LADY Macbeth Riots ruled the Manila Hustle 3×3 Philippine Women’s 3×3 International Invitational, exacting sweet vengeance on Army Altama with a 21-11 victory in the finals over the weekend at the Robinsons Magnolia in Quezon City.

Ateneo pride and UAAP Rookie of the Year Kacey Dela Rosa led the way for Lady Macbeth en route to a Finals MVP citation of the Uratex-backed tilt after her dominant showing inside the paint.

Ms. Dela Rosa, who torched the UAAP with monstrous averages of 16.4 points, 14.0 rebounds and 3.0 blocks, got ample contribution from Gilas Pilipinas women veterans Janine Pontejos, Khate Castillo and Trina Guytingco.

Lady Macbeth actually had a flat start, trailing 3-6, before Ms. Dela Rosa and company stamped their class in a searing 18-5 turnaround punctuated by her game-winning freebie.

It proved as a satisfying payback for Lady Macbeth — which drubbed Thailand’s Shoot It Dragons in the quarters, 19-17, and Discovery Perlas, 21-18  in the semis– after bowing to Army Altama in the Pool D prelims, 17-16.

Chack Cabinbin, Camille Sambile, Soc Borja and Mar Prado, nevertheless, had a commendable campaign at second place in an all-Filipina championship duel.

Ms. Prado also gained recognition by joining Ms. Dela Rosa and Dunarang Kim of South Korea’s 1EYEHANSOL in the Mythical Three.

The Korean squad completed the podium of the historic 12-team joust also supported by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas after a 21-11 win over Discovery Perlas in the bronze medal match.
