Tropang Giga wheel back to no.1 spot

RIDING on its Leg 3 triumph last Tuesday, TnT took the top spot in the overall team standings at the halfway mark of the six-leg PBA 3x3 Third Conference.

The Tropang Giga, who finished only seventh in Leg 2 after topping the kickoff leg, earned the maximum 100 points with their third-leg romp to reclaim pole position with a 240-point aggregate.

The Almond Vosotros-led Tropang Giga dislodged Leg 2 victor Meralco (220), who couldn't maintain the lead after placing fourth in the previous stop.

Purefoods TJ Titans, gaining from their runner-up finish in Leg 3, climbed to No. 3 with 200 points.

With its recent podium finish, Platinum Karaoke moved to fourth spot with 165, slightly ahead of Barangay Ginebra (161) in the coveted Top 4.

Cavitex (143), First Conference titlist Limitless (103), San Miguel Beer (98), Terrafirma (92) and Sista (92) occupied sixth to 10th.

Knocking on the doors of the cut line for the conference grand finals are Master Sardines (61), Second Conference champ Pioneer Pro Tibay (52), NorthPort (45) and Zamboanga Valientes (41).

Only the Top 10 teams after six legs will advance to the conference championship with the upper four seeded straight into the quarterfinal round and the lower six disputing the four other Last-8 slots in an elimination phase.

The squads continue their respective bids this weekend as the PBA 3x3 swings to the Ynares Center in Antipolo for its Leg 4 action. (OL)
