The 3 v 3 Nike sponsored event produced some great basketball and a second Fury team also competed well in the event.

Fury2 comprised Lithuanian brothers Kornelius and Zigy Dauksas, Connor Martin and Daniel Tran. The £200 prize will go towards club development and all eight Fury players will be the core of Fury’s challenge to retain their three Scottish titles in the season ahead, along with Keith Bunyan, centres Ross Gibson and Ben Chok and Ross Munnoch.

Fury Men’s season starts in less than two weeks’ time when they play their first ever Championship game at Grangemouth SC on Friday, September 1, at 8pm against Glasgow University.

Fury Headcoach John Bunyan commented: “The T3 event was a great way for our players to get some serious but fun basketball in just before the start of the season and we look forward to a new season at Grangemouth SC in front of an even bigger Fury fanbase where we aim to make our crowd top 400!”

Meanwhile Fury’s Senior Men’s 21-year-old point guard Eddy Leginus added the Nike T3 three point shoot-out title to his team title at the Kelvin Hall. Leginus was MVP of last season’s Play-Off Final with a blistering three point display that gave Fury Men all three national titles and his shooting at the Nike T3 was again outstanding.

In the opening round Eddy hit 20 from 25 threes and then with 18 from 25 defeated another Fury star – Daniel Tran - in the three point shoot out final.

Bunyan said: “Eddy is a 100 per cent basketball fanatic – he has a tremendous work ethic and since he joined Fury at the age of 10, he has worked tirelessly to be the best he can be.

“He is one of a handful of players who have had the ability to go straight from junior to serious senior men’s court time. I have great confidence in Eddy and as our starting PG was key in delivering the treble for Fury last season.”
