DAGUPAN CITY – Four young female Dagupenos won the team championship when they bagged gold medals in the 8th NBA 3X3 championships held at the SM Mall of Asia from August 24 to 26.

Jane De Vera of the University of Luzon (UL), Rosemarie Delos Santos of St. Albert the Great School (SAGS), Regimay Castres of St. John Cathedral School (SJCS) and Fiona Kixsha Camangeg of SAGS displayed their indisputable shooting prowess in besting five other teams in the under 18 category in 3×3 basketball.
