The 4 members of the Latvian national team who shocked the World at the FIBA 3x3 Europe Cup 2017 will now make their pro debut at the FIBA 3x3 World Tour after winning the Tinkoff Moscow Open in Moscow, Russia on July 28-29.
Big man Edgars Krumins buried two even bigger shots from outside the arc in the last minutes of the game to lead Riga past Kranj (SLO) in the final (21-14).
But it was 23-year-old Karl Lasmanis who was named MVP of the event for his outstanding performance during the 2 days of action.
Like it is the case at all challengers, two new teams have secured a ticket to the World Tour.
