PBA 3x3 Third Conference: Eriobu, Vosotros lead top performers

Joseph Eriobu of Purefoods and Almond Vosotros of leg winner TnT showed the way among the premiere individual performers in the recent PBA 3x3 Third Conference kickoff hoopfest at Robinsons Magnolia.

Eriobu emerged as the leg's top gunner as he piled up 44 points in six games for the third-placed Titans while finishing in the Top 2 in rebounding with a 29-board aggregate. He had the most one-point conversions with 25 and knocked down eight two-pointers, good for sixth overall.

Vosotros, the scoring champion of the First and Second Conferences, wound up No. 2 behind Eriobu with 40 markers spiked by 11 deuces even as he led the league in steals with five and ranked second in most assists with 14.

Barangay Ginebra's Denice Villamor shared the top view rebounding-wise on the strength of his 11 offensive and 18 defensive-rebound tally in the two-day competition, which was held in the mall for the first time.

Villamor's teammate Leo de Vera was the leg's top assists-man with 16 overall, which he complemented with the third-best total of 28 boards.
