The number one 3x3 players for 2014 from all around the world

MIES (3x3) - Dejan Majstorovic, the number one 3x3 player in Serbia and the entire world, headlines the list of players (men and women) who finished 2014 and started 2015 as the best 3x3 players in their respective countries and territories.

Among them are some familiar faces such as the reigning FIBA 3x3 World Champion with Qatar (and former FIBA U19 World Championship top scorer) Yaseen Musa and NCAA superstar with Notre Dame and FIBA 3x3 World Champion with USA, Jewell Loyd.

The new generation is taking over with 23-year-old Terrence Bill Romeo on top of the men's rankings in the Philippines and 19-year-old rising star Hind Ben Abdelkader jumping to number one 3x3 women's player in Belgium (and in the rest of the world).
