Canada ' s 3 - on - 3 basketball run ends with playoff loss . The Canadians , who came into the tournament ranked 14th in the world, went a perfect 4-0 in pool play , defeating Mongolia, the host Philippines, Russia and Brazil to win Pool C.

Michael Linklater and Jermaine Bucknor scored five points each in the loss to the Netherlands, which was ranked No. 8 heading into the event. Steve Sir and Michael Lieffers added three points apiece for Canada.

The Canadians are hoping their first World Cup appearance is a stepping stone to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, where 3-on-3 basketball will make its Olympic debut. Only eight teams will qualify for each of the men's and women's tournaments at the Olympics.

Canada does not have an entry in the women's 3-on-3 World Cup, which is being played alongside the men's tournament in Manila.

The 3-on-3 game is designed to be a simpler, faster-paced version of traditional basketball. It's typically played outdoors on a half court with one basket. Teams are allowed one sub on the bench. The shot clock starts at 12 seconds (half as much time as NBA players get). Shots made from inside the arc, as well as free throws, are worth one point. Shots made from beyond the arc are worth two. When the defensive team gains possession of the ball, they have to take it out beyond the arc. Games last 10 minutes, or until a team reaches 21 points.

Serbia was trying to win its third consecutive men's World Cup. The Serbs have won the event three of the four times it has been held since it began in 2012.
