Far Eastern University (FEU) triumphed in the first-ever UAAP Season 80 3X3 tournament after thrashing the University of the East (UE), 21-13, Sunday at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall.

Wendell Comboy spearheaded the charge for the Tamaraws with 11 points, while Richard Escoto added five, including a crucial bucket with 2:06 remaining in the game.

Ken Tuffin contributed four points, while Michael John Casiño scored a pair for the Morayta-based school.

UE’s Alvin Pasaol put up an impressive 10-point performance but it was not enough as the Red Warriors could not keep up.

Meanwhile, National University (NU) ruled the women’s tournament after vanquishing Adamson University, 15-6.
