MANILA, Philippines – Unlimited app PBA 3 × 3 has ruled the leg 5 of the tournament, with TNT once again disappointed for the title at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Sunday night.
The Appmasters won the second conference, second leg championship after beating Tropang Giga 22-19 in the final, and repeated their Leg 3 achievement three weeks ago where they also claimed the title.
Jori led the 3 × 3 team of the Naples Phoenix franchise to the Limitless app, which has 11 points with four stretches. Brandon Ganuelas-Rosser, who secured a corner two-pointer win, finished with five.
“They (TNT) are improving and we are still trying to improve. I think every single team still needs to improve a lot, it just so happened that the ball went to us more than they did, “said coach Willie Wilson, whose team won the top prize of P100,000.
This was the fourth time the Unlimited App and TNT had met in the final of the 3 × 3 tournament and won all the previous games.
The appmasters have established themselves as one of the powerhouses of the tournament, reaching the leg finals for the third time in a row.
Tropang Giga, led by Almond Vosotros, received P50,000 for second place.
Platinum Karaoke, which beat Purefoods 8-17 in the fight for third place, took P30,000.
