The Philippines’ Manila North moved on to the quarterfinals of the FIBA 3×3 World Tour Final after knocking out Doha of Qatar Thursday (early Friday morning Manila time) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Led by Calvin Abueva, Manila North only needed one win to advance, and the Filipinos completed the job after downing their familiar foe, 16-14, in their do-or-die encounter. (Full game below.)

Before that, Manila North had lost to Kranj of Slovenia, 21-17, in its first outing. (Full game below.)

Manila North, also composed of Karl Dehesa, Troy Rosario and Vic Manuel, faces a tough outing against world No.1 NoviSad Alwahda in the quarterfinals early Saturday morning.
