Blackwater, Ginebra arrange finals duel in women’s 3×3



Blackwater and Barangay Ginebra scored close victories Monday at the SM Mall of Asia Arena to enter the finals of the PBA Dickies Women’s 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament.

Blackwater first defeated NLEX, 12-10, in a come-from-behind win which had needed overtime.

Fria Bernardo opened the game with a drive and a two, handing NLEX a 3-0 early lead, but Allana Lim scored back-to-back underneath. Camille Sambile knocked down a jumper to push Blackwater ahead, 4-3. The two teams went toe-to-toe before an and-one play by Mae Cabinbin and a basket by Lim pushed Blackwater’s lead to 10-8 under the final minute. Angelika Ortega however, scored two straight layups to force extension.

In overtime, Lim scored a short stab while Cabinbin nailed a free throw after being fouled on an attack to end the game.

In the second game, Ginebra edged Alaska, 10-7, to complete the finals cast.
