The Triple Giga nearly achieved a flawless run throughout the six-leg, mid-season, half-court tournament, securing victories in all legs except Leg 4, where the guest team MCFASolver emerged victorious.
The telecommunication franchise’s impressive performance has secured them the coveted no. 1 seed and established them as the overwhelming favorites for the 10-team grand finals, where the triumphant team will claim the P750,000 prize.
Almond Vosotros and his teammates are riding a wave of success into the grand finale, having clinched victory in the last five conferences, including a rare grand slam in Season 2.
Champion coach Mau Belen is once again relying on the 33-year-old Vosotros to lead TNT’s charge, supported by Gryann Mendoza, Ping Exciminiano, and Chester Saldua.
Joining TNT in the knockout stage are the second-seeded Meralco, third-seeded Cavitex, and fourth-seeded Pioneer Elastoseal, securing their spots by finishing in the Top 4 at the conclusion of the six-leg competition.
The remaining five teams that qualified for the grand finals—MCFASolver (5th), Blackwater Smooth Razor (6th), Terrafirma (7th), Purefoods (8th), San Miguel (9th), and Barangay Ginebra (10th)—will engage in a one-round pool stage to determine the four additional quarterfinalists.
The Tech Centrale leads Pool A together with the Titans and Beermen, while Pool B is composed of the Smooth Razor, Dyip, and Kings.
MCFASolver takes on San Miguel to kick off the six-game pool play starting at 2 p.m.
The top team to emerge in Pool A will face Pioneer Elastoseal in the knockout phase, while the no. 2 seed in the same group goes up against Meralco.
TNT awaits the no. 2 team which will emerge in Pool B, while the group’s no. 1 seed will have Cavitex for its opponent.
The runner-up in the grand finals receives P250,000, while the third placer will bag P100,000.
