The Lagos 3x3 Tour ended in grand style at the Teslim Balogun Stadium with the two finalists from each series competing for the grand price; a total of 8 teams per category.

One interesting thing about the male category is that the two finalists from Ilupeju (DWB and Deepbond) and Ikoyi (Ogra Hoops King 1 and Border Basketballers) qualified for the semi-finals. The final was a show down between DWB and Deepbond. The athletism and youthfulness of Deepbond was enough to secure a victory over the experienced DWB. The game ended 12 – 7.

In the female category, the Hope for Girls won all the games of the grandfinal to emerge champions. They defeated Mobolaji Princess in the group stage  8 – 3. They met again in the finals and they crushed the Princess 11 – 2.

The two winners walked away with N200,000 each.
