Liman won their first-ever International Basketball Federation (FIBA) 3x3 World Tour Final title at the competition's tenth edition in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah.

The Serbian side beat Russia's Gagarin 21-14 to avenge last year's loss in the final.

They also suffered an injury-riddled season which resulted in them going through a year without winning a Masters title for the first time since 2017.

Liman kept their best play for the ultimate stage as they had a perfect 5-0 win-loss record in Jeddah.

Sharpshooter Stefan Kojic of Serbia led his team in the final with a game-high 11 points while his teammate Mihailo Vasic, who won bronze at Tokyo 2020, was named the overall Most Valuable Player after leading the event in player value and finishing as the second-highest top scorer.

Tokyo 2020 silver medallist Stanislav Sharov of Russia had a team-high nine points in the decider for Gagarin, who staged the biggest upset of the tournament when they beat defending champions Riga in the quarter-finals.

Liman were presented with the trophy by Saudi Arabian sport vice Minister Bader Alkadhi and FIBA President Hamane Niang.

In the individual contests, Piotr Grabowski of Poland won the dunk contest, and received the award from Saudi Basketball Federation President Ghassan Tashkandi.

The Olympic champion Edgars Krumins of Latvia, who represented Riga, dominated the shoot-out contest and was awarded his trophy by Bilal Saudi.

There was no bronze medal match and as a result Amsterdam were awarded third place as they scored 77 points across their four matches compared to Antwerp's 70.

Ub were seeded second for the tournament but similarly to top seed Riga they crashed out at the quarter-final stage and finished the competition in sixth place overall.
