Aurin joins Ginebra 3×3 squad

Barangay Ginebra heads Pool C along with San Miguel and Pioneer Elastoseal, even as Cavitex is at the forefront of Pool D with J&T Express and NorthPort.

Buoyed by its third place finish a week ago, Barangay Ginebra continues to stack up its roster in the Philippine Basketball Association 3×3 Second Conference Season 2.

The Kings tapped former University of Perpetual Help gunner Kim Aurin for Leg 2 of the half court game on Saturday at Robinsons Malabon.

Aurin joins the trio of Donald Gumaru, Louis Raphael Cu, and Denice Villamor as the Kings try to surpass the podium finish they had in last week’s opening leg when they beat the Cavitex Braves for third place, 21-13.

Meralco and Pioneer Elastoseal meanwhile, try to bounce back from their disappointing campaign in Leg 1 that saw both teams missed the playoffs.

The Bolts have reactivated stalwart Tonino Gonzaga and team up with Alfred Batino, Reymar Caduyac and Joseph Manlangit, while the Katibays enlisted 6-foot-6 Jonjon Gabriel to play alongside Gian Abrigo, Christian Rivera, and Reeve Ugsang.

Leg 1 winner TNT again looms as the top favorite for the title and the P100,000 prize money in the wake of its 17-15 overtime thriller against Platinum Karaoke in the finals last week.

The Tropang Giga, who will have big man Ray Mark Acuno in lieu of Samboy De Leon, are in Pool A together with Terrafirma and Blackwater, while runner up Platinum Karaoke leads Pool B with
Purefoods TJ Titans and Meralco.

Barangay Ginebra heads Pool C along with San Miguel and Pioneer Elastoseal, even as Cavitex is at the forefront of Pool D with J&T Express and NorthPort.

Twelve matches again comprise the pool play which starts at 11 a.m.

Eight teams will advance to the knockout stage on Sunday for the chance to win the top purse of P100,000.

Runner-up gets P50,000, while third placer will get P30,000.
