Ginebra advances to PBA 3×3 semis for first time as Limitless boots out Platinum


Ginebra showed San Miguel the exit doors, 21-14, to barge into the PBA 3×3 Second Conference semifinals, Sunday at the SMART Araneta Coliseum.

Encho Serrano nailed the ticket-punching jumper with 3:18 left to play as the new-look Gin Kings have reached this far for the first time ever.

The Barangay has showed no signs whatsoever of slowing down, carrying the momentum it had in Day 1 that saw them sweep Pool A at 4-0.

Jayson David top-billed for Ginebra with seven points. Serrano scored six as he went 4-of-4 from the floor, as Jollo Go and Dennice Villamor finished with four apiece in yet another solid collective showing of Kirk Collier’s wards.

The team, however, will be put to the test as they will battle the veteran-laden crew of Meralco in the semis later at 12:35 p.m.

Tonino Gonzaga led all scorers with eight points as the MVP Group-owned ball club remained a consistent fixture in the semis. Joseph Sedurifa and Dexter Maiquez each produced five points.

Meanwhile, Limitless App kept its title retention bid very much alive as it dominated Platinum Karaoke, 21-11.

Brandon Ganuelas-Rosser once again powered the Appmasters with 11 markers. Jorey Napoles and Reymar Caduyac supplied four points each, as veteran big man Marvin Hayes chimed in two.
