Top 5 reasons to watch the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Utsunomiya Masters 2018

UTSUNOMIYA (FIBA 3x3 World Tour 2018) - The FIBA 3x3 World Tour is going back to Japan for the 2nd Masters of the season and we give you 5 reasons to watch the event all weekend long!


To start things off, if you’ve never seen the venue of the Utsunomiya Masters, prepare to be absolutely blown away. We’re playing in front of one of the most famous Shinto shrines in the country. 3x3, it’s a cultural thing!

At 2, it’s the return of the Dragon. A few months after being named MVP of the World Tour Final last year, Zemun star Bogdan Dragovic tore his MCL. The Utsunomiya Masters will be his 1st tournament of the year!


At 3, Team Piran of Slovenia have had enough of finishing second in Japan. Their molesters the last 2 years Novi Sad didn’t make it to Utsunomiya. Is it the year Piran turn Pyrotechnics?

Coming up at 4, DeVaughn Washington is back in Utsunomiya. And the easiest bet of the entire tournament is the American star will find a stop in the Top 5 Plays video.

Last but not least at 5, if you like dunks, get ready for Jordan Southerland. The American dunker is more flexible than the Elastic Man and has more bounce than Super Mario.
