Loreto Magic claimed an impressive third spot at the EABL 3×3 National Finals in Leicester on Wednesday.
The squad of Michael Anumba, Arinze Emeka-Anyakwo, Wesley Oba and Hassan Ramic opened with a 14-12 win over Pool B rivals Copleston before slipping to a 21-17 defeat to Oaklands.
Their record was still good enough to book them a place in the semi-finals, where they came up against a Charnwood College Riders outfit featuring Sesan Russell, voted MVP at the recent Haris Charalambous Memorial Basketball Tournament.
Loreto were beaten 21-10 by the tournament hosts, who went on to claim the title with a 19-14 victory over Myerscough College.
Loreto, who qualified for the six-team showpiece by finishing second in their regional event, then claimed an impressive 21-9 victory over Oaklands in the battle for third.
