By rick olivares

It was raining outside the Philippine Arena. Inside, it was raining three-pointers as defending Fiba 3×3 World Cup champions, Serbia dropped four consecutive treys to blow open their quarterfinals match with Mongolia.

From an 8-6 score in favor of Serbia, Dusan Bulut, Marko Savic, and Dejan Majstorovic hit four triples to hike their advantage to 16-6.

Mongolia valiantly tried to rally but Majstorovic continued to wax hot.

After Bulut scored on a lay-up to give Serbia a 19-8 lead, Majstorovic hit a game-ending triple to send his team to the sem-finals.

“We’re not yet done,” said Bulut, the world number one 3×3 player.

“ We hope we can continue our hot shooting,” quipped Majstorovic.
