An emotional Cecilia Toth broke down after finding out that she was selected to referee her first major 3x3 tournament. She became the first-ever woman to officiate the men's final of the FIBA 3x3 Europe Cup. "To get a chance to officiate the final was the best feedback I could get," she said. "I remember only a few days after the final, I realized that I was the one who refereed the gold medal game. It took like two days to realize what had happened to me. Toth had originally become a basketball ref but was asked by the Hungarian Basketball Federation to give 3x3 refereeing a go given her background. The 30-year-old first played 3x3 in 2012 and became a mainstay player for Hungary, who she represented at the 2014 and 2016 World Cups.
