PBA 3×3: Cavitex sweeps pool to open ‘three-peat’ bid


CAVITEX bolstered its bid for a third straight championship in the PBA 3×3 First Conference after sweeping its way to the knockout stage of Leg 6 Monday at the Ayala Malls Trinoma.

Behind Jorey Napoles and Bong Galanza, Cavitex defeated Blackwater, 17-13, to open its Group A run before escaping with a thrilling 19-17 victory over TNT.

TNT Triple Giga clinched the other berth in the same group behind a 21-16 victory over Blackwater, which officially bowed out of the quarterfinals running after two straight losses.

Also advancing to the next round were Wilcon Depot and Barangay Ginebra, which both secured two victories in the opening day of pool play.

Wilcon turned back Pioneer (18-11) and Meralco (19-15) to take the top spot in Pool B.

The Kings, back-to-back champions in Legs 1 and 2, on the other hand, downed San Miguel (21-12), and Terrafirma (21-15) for the no. 1 slot in Pool C.

Four quarterfinal berths are still being contested by Meralco, Purefoods, and Pioneer in Pool B, and Northport, Terrafirma, and San Miguel in Pool C.

Meralco, Purefoods, Northport, and Terrafirma all sport identical records of 1-1, while San Miguel and Pioneer, runner-up finisher to Cavitex in Leg 5 last week, are in danger of missing the cut with their 0-2 slates.

Only the top eight teams will make it to the quarterfinals of the final leg this conference prior to the Season 3 grand finale set August 13 at the Ayala Malls Market! Market!

Leg 6 champion is set to receive P100,000, runner-up P50,000, and third placer P30,000.
