3x3 Teams aim to steal top honors as TNT guns for triple crown

Will grand slam-seeking TnT or the five other leg winners go all the way to the PBA 3x3 Season 2 Third Conference crown? Will the rest of the field steal the thunder and wrest the ultimate prize?

This will be answered Sunday as the Top 10 squads in the season-ender battle it out for the conference championship at Robinsons Place Las Pinas.

The Leg 2-winning Tropang Giga, who are aiming for a Triple Crown this season after ruling the First and Second Conferences, carry top seeding in the one-day affair and are altready waiting in the quarterfinal round.

Second-ranked and Leg 4 ruler Cavitex, No. 3 Meralco and No. 4 and third-leg victor Barangay Ginebra join multi-titled TnT as seeded quarterfinalists as incentives for finishing in the Top 4 after the six-leg pre-finals.

Meanwhile, fifth-ranked and Leg 1 conqueror Platinum Karaoke, No. 6 and Leg 6 kingpin J&T Express, No. 7 Pioneer Elastoseal, No. 8 and Leg 1 winner San Miguel Beer, No. 9 Blackwater and No. 10 Purefoods play in the pool phase beginning at 10 a.m. to dispute the four remaining quarterfinals slots,

Platinum, SMB and Blackwater duke it out in Pool A while J&T, Pioneer and Purefoods mix it up in Pool B. The two group winners and two group runner-up move forward to the Last-8 versus the seeded bets.

A cool P750,000 awaits the triumphant squad in the Third Conference Grand Finals. Second placer, meanwhile, banks P250,000 as the third placer nets P100,000.

If successful, the Almond Vosotros-led Tropang Giga carve their name in history as the first team to pull off a season sweep. In the inaugural season last year, Limitless App ruled the first two conferences before TnT took top honors in the last tournament. (OL)
