The national 3x3 team of the Philippines represents the country in international 3x3 basketball matches and is controlled by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas


When 3x3 was held at the 2007 Asian Indoor Games as a demonstration sports the Philippine national team finished fourth with Hong Kong defeating them in the third place play-off. Luigi Trillo was the coach that guided national team composing of Nico Salva, Ryan Buenafe, Arvie Bringas and Clark Bautista, in the games.[2]

The Philippines also participated in the 2010 Youth Summer Olympics in Singapore, the first edition of the Youth Olympics where 3x3 is among the sports contested. The national team finished ninth.[3]

By the virtue of the Philippines' FIBA 3x3 Federation Ranking,[4] the national team qualified for the 2016 FIBA 3x3 World Championships and made their debut in the tournament.[5] They lost 2 and win 2 of their four matches.[6]

The national team played their second stint in the world championships, now renamed as the FIBA 3x3 World Cup in 2018 which was hosted at home in Bocaue. This time the Philippine national team composed of professional players[7] and Bounty Agro Ventures, the owners of Chooks-to-Go and sponsor of the national team and tournament, pledged unspecified monetary reward for the Philippine national team for each game won.[8] Like in 2016, they lost half of their four matches (to Mongolia and Canada) but won over Brazil and Russia which were ranked fifth and third respectively.[9] The team which is composed of players who typically plays the full 5-a-side basketball cited its experience in 3x3 for its finishing.[10]

The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP), the country's national association, plans to come up with a road map to help the Philippines qualify a team in 3x3 basketball in the 2020 Summer Olympics following the national team's stint in the 2018 FIBA 3x3 World Cup. The SBP plans to create a pool of players which will be dedicated to the 3x3 variant of basketball.[11] The SBP, along with private sponsor Chooks-to-Go, started the process in August 2018 with the launch of a national tour to help scout for players across the country. The roster which will attempt to qualify for the 2020 Summer Olympics will be composed of Kobe Paras and three other players from the pool of players.[12]
