·1 min read

THE Sista Super Sealers and the Pioneer Pro Tibay secured spots in the knockout stage of the PBA 3x3 Lakas Ng Tatlo Grand Finals on Wednesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The Super Sealers got clutch baskets by Jan Jamon to complete a sweep of their Pool A games. Sista downed Pioneer, 19-17, behind Jamon’s heroics. He then scored 13 points in its 20-19 victory over Purefoods later on for a 2-0 record, and advance in the next stage of the season finale.

Meanwhile, Pioneer trounced Purefoods to secure the last playoffs berth in the same pool.

Teams advancing in Pool B have yet to be determined as the grand finals was temporarily put off until further notice after a fire hit the Big Dome during the games.

The scheduled pool play was on its final game between Barangay Ginebra and Platinum Karaoke when smoke suddenly began filling inside the Big Dome.

All teams, players, and personnel were later evacuated at the venue parking lot for safety measures, after which, the league later decided to suspend the scheduled games for good.

“For now suspended muna yung grand finals natin because of what happened until further notice. We’ll reschedule it for everybody to be prepared also,” said tournament director Joey Guanio.

Already seeded in the knockout stage are Limitless App, TNT Tropang Giga, Meralco, and San Miguel.

Limitless is set to face Pioneer, while Meralco will be up against Sista. (JNP)
