PASAY--Jordan Sta. Ana led the charge for Phenom as the team won the Red Bull Reign 3x3 Tournament, beating LGU 1, 10-7, in the final at the Taft Food by the Court on Saturday night.

The former UST player scored the go-ahead long one-pointer while making two straight layups that helped Phenom break away from LGU 1 to win all-expense paid tickets to the Red Bull Reign World Finals in Washington DC.

Sta. Ana also got help from all his teammates, namely Jarrold Flores, Carl Sumalacay, and John Rom Alvarado.

Souldier, on the other hand, stunned Pacita, led by former Lyceum big man Seraj Elmejrab, 14-13, to capture the bronze.

Meanwhile, David Carlos once again showed why he is now among the top professional dunkers in the world by winning a special dunk contest.
