TNT chases 2nd straight 3×3 title

Off and running again, TNT Tropang Giga seeks to make it two straight when the Philippine Basketball Association 3×3 Third Conference Season 2 resumes on Thursday at Robinsons Place Antipolo.

The Tropang Giga welcomed back main man Almond Vosotros by claiming last week’s leg title behind a 20-14 beating of Barangay Ginebra to take home the top prize of P100,000.

And the telecommunication franchise certainly has no plans of slowing down as coach Mau Belen tweaked his roster anew for the Leg 3 competition.

Vosotros will still have big man Lervin Flores in the middle but will be joined this time by wingmen Samboy De Leon and Gryann Mendoza.

Opening leg champion San Miguel is not to be outdone though, as it activated James Mangahas in lieu of Dariel Bayla.

Mangahas will be playing alongside Ken Bono, Leo de Vera, and Tonino Gonzaga as the Beermen seek to reclaim the top spot in the team standings after being toppled by the Tropang Giga at the conclusion of Leg 2.

TNT leads Pool A, Barangay Ginebra in Pool B, while Meralco and Cavitex are on Pools C and D, respectively.

The rest of the teams drawn were Purefoods and Pioneer Elastoseal in Pool A, Blackwater and Platinum Karaoke in Pool B, J&T Express and NorthPort in Pool C, and San Miguel, and Terrafirma in Pool D.

Twelve games again comprised the pool matches to be kicked off by the game between Purefoods TJ Titans and Pioneer Elastoseal beginning at 10 a.m.

The eight teams to survive the pool competition advance to the knockout stage that will be played on Friday.

Leg champion receives P100,000, runner up P50,000, and third placer P30,000.
