Melbourne Hustlers Finish Fourth At Sina Elite League

The Melbourne Hustlers have proved they can compete with some of the best 3×3 teams in the world, finishing fourth at this weekend’s Sina Elite League.

Melbourne advanced through to the knockout stages on a points tiebreaker and they wasted no time getting off to a quick start, taking down Inanomo 20-17 in the quarterfinal.

That set up a mouthwatering clash against one of 3×3’s most exciting teams, NY Harlem, in the semi-final. The Hustlers held their own against the world’s fourth ranked team but couldn’t get over their more fancied opponents, losing 21-15.

In the third placed game, the Hustlers lost to Shang Shi Long Chuang 19-17, as Tom Wright, Greg Hire, Andrew Steel and Tom Jervis fell in another tight battle.

The Melbourne Hustlers will use this experience to their advantage as they hope to appear in more international tournaments in 2020.
