International School of Phnom Penh’s TBD team won a nail-biting final of the STUCO 3-on-3 Youth Basketball Tournament on Saturday after edging hosts Northbridge International School’s Lights Out team 17-16 thanks to a last-gasp shot before the buzzer.

The tournament, which is part of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia’s development of national sports structure in basketball, was organised by the students’ council of Northbridge in collaboration with the Cambodia Basketball Federation and sponsored by Kalbe International, makers of energy drink Extra Joss.

10 teams comprised from students at four international schools (Northbridge, ISPP, LOGOS and CIA) took part in the 3-a-side competition which followed world governing body FIBA rules.
