MANILA, Philippines — Spain, who defeated the Philippines in a 16-21 win has been stripped of their win to the Philippines after FIBA cited some irregularities.
FIBA is yet to issue a full statement about the incident but has already announced that Spain is no more in the FIBA 3×3 World Championships and as such their win against Philippines has been nullified.
Glen Khobuntin was named FIBA 3×3 World Championships Player of the Day after his impressive performance in two games.
Khobuntin came in as a substitute in their come-from-behind win against sixth-seed Romania, 21-19. He replaced Russell Escoto, who hurt his shoulder after colliding with a Romanian.
In their second game, however, the Philippines lost to Spain, 16-21, which FIBA has described as a “cheat”.
