CAVITEX puts its bid to win a third straight crown in motion when hostilities in Leg 6 of the Philippine Basketball Association 3×3 First Conference get going today at the Ayala Malls-Trinoma.

Last week, Cavitex ruled Leg 5 after downing Pioneer Elastoseal, 22-10.

The team currently leads the rest of the 10 teams in the Total Tour Points with 410 after five legs, and is seeded outright to the knockout stage of the grand finals set on August 13.

Still, the Braves are not taking chances.

Cavitex coach Kyles Lao decided to reactivate guard Tonino Gonzaga for Kenneth Ighalo, who shared scoring honors in the Leg 5 finals a week ago. Gonzaga will join hands with Jorey Napoles, Dominick Fajardo, and Bong Galanza.

The 3×3 franchise of NLEX leads the Pool A charge together with Blackwater Razor Smooth and TNT Triple Giga, which will have top scoring guard Almond Vosotros back in action after missing the conference’s penultimate leg.

Pioneer Elastoseal, which achieved a runnerup finish for the second time, banners Pool B in the company of Meralco, Purefoods, and Wilcon Depot.

Elastoseal coach Lester Del Rosario also shuffled his roster in a bid to nail the last leg title at stake, inserting Wilson Baltazar for Kenneth Mocon to go with the trio of Gian Abrigo, Denice Villamor, and Reggie Morido.

Pool C meanwhile, will have the quartet of back-to-back leg champion Barangay Ginebra, Northport, Terrafirma, and San Miguel.

The champion team will receive P100,000.
