Egypt dominated at the FIBA 3x3 Africa Cup, where both the men's and women's teams saw victory at their respective finals in Uganda. The men's team beat DR Congo in their finals with a score of 21-12, while the women's team defeated Mali by 18-15.

This is the first time that the Egyptian men's team has ever earned the FIBA 3x3 Africa Cup title. Meanwhile, the Egyptian women's team denied Mali their third Africa Cup title in a row; this is Mali's second loss in FIBA 3x3 Africa Cup history since the tournament began in 2017.

The women's team earned further accolades through their top player Soraya Mohamed, who was named MVP of the tournament for her all-star performance. Nicknamed "The Queen of Egypt", Soraya Mohamed displayed some insane cross-over artistry closing out the finals and bringing Egypt the gold with a buzzer-beating three-pointer during the last few seconds of the match.

This wasn't the only achievement Egypt made in the world of 3x3 basketball. The Egyptian U18 men's team rounded out the weekend with an undefeated run to earn the inaugural FIBA 3x3 U18 Africa Cup.
