The2014 FIBA 3x3 World Tour Rio de Janeiro Masters was held on 27/28 September. On the Sport Court ® basketball court, team Sao Paulo edged out Santos in a one-sided 21-12 win in Sunday’s all-Brazilian final in the park known as Aterro do Flamengo, one of the venues of the 2016 Olympic Games, with the Sugarloaf Mountain on the horizon.

The pin-sized (1,74m) Rodrigo Del'Arco (Sao Paulo) was the top scorer, making a lot of damage from behind the arc burying 17 two-pointers en route to 50 total points in five games.

In the individual competitions, the two-time FIBA 3x3 World Tour dunk champion Rafal ‘Lipek’ Lipinski won the Oi Galera Dunk Contest (http://goo.gl/lbs0ze)  with a series of sizzling dunks that featured a 540-degree jam and a dunk over a 2,05m big man. Team Pelotas’ Felipe Ventura showed unlimited range to win the Samsung Shoot-Out Contest.
