TNT unleashes a returning Almond Vosotros as it guns for two in a row in the PBA 3×3 Season 3 Second Conference Leg 2 that begins today (Oct. 23)at the Ayala Mall Circuit in Makati.
Mr. Vosotros served as “reserve” when the Triple Giga ruled last week’s conference opener and is poised to hit the ground running in his comeback stint in collaboration with first-leg winners Ping Exciminiano and Matt Salem and conference debutant Chester Saldua.
The Triple Giga’s quest for the franchise’s 15th leg title overall starts in Pool A, where they battle No. 6 Purefoods and No. 7 Blackwater for spots to the KO rounds.
Cavitex and Meralco resume their bids for the top honors with the same cast that finished second and third, respectively, in Leg 1.
The No. 2 Braves field anew Tonino Gonzaga, Marion Magat, Jorey Napoles and Ken Ighalo, who face No. 5 Ginebra, No. 8 San Miguel Beer and No. 11 Pioneer Elastoseal in the initial skirmishes in Pool B.
The third-ranked Bolts parade Alfred Batino, Joseph Sedurifa, Jeff Manday and JJ Manlangit in the two-day stop, where they duel first with No. 4 MCFASolver, No. 9 NorthPort and No. 10 Terrafirma in Pool C.
The half-court specialists dispute two berths to the quarterfinals at stake in three-team Pool A and three tickets to the Last-8 on the line in Pools B and C. — Olmin Leyba
