The basketball court was filled with the thump of dribbling, the buzz of the shot clock and the raucous cheering of fans. Last Thursday, the preliminary rounds from the Intramural 3-on-3 basketball competition was held by UONM’s own Basketball Club.

Using only half a court, the intense seven-minute game played out with several teams going head to head to proceed to the final rounds. Three players on both the offensive and defensive side tried  their best to outwit the other using a mix of strategy and speed.

Seventeen teams made up the competition with interim periods of rest deciding who was on the court. As each team banded together to win the prize pool, there remained a palpable feeling of tension in the air.

As the day drew to a close, the remaining teams awaited the final rounds with fierce determination.
