DUBAI: Team Frank Lloyd Wright bagged the Architects Basketball Association (ABA) Season 8 Championship after trouncing Calatrava, 64-59 at the Shabab Al Ahli Gym, Dubai.

The organization’s annual main event also dubbed, the Inter-color league, had an electrifying finals match-up that witnessed a down-the-wire finish between the two teams that engaged in a very close battle throughout the game until Team Wright finally clamped down on a great defensive effort on the dying seconds to secure the win.

Meanwhile, Gaudi prevailed over Kurokawa to the tune of 77-66 to clinch 3rd place. Junar Aquino led his team with 21 points to bag the accolade.

SEASON MVP- REYDHOM LEGARIO

Mythical Team included Rommel Cruz (Frank Lloyd Wright), Junar Aquino (Gaudi), Dennis Garcia (Kurokawa), Jay Argos Gonzales (Calatrava) and Hadji Bustos (Calatrava).
