TNT lost no time regaining its lofty perch on top of the PBA 3×3, trouncing Barangay Ginebra, 20-14, to rule Leg 2 of the Third Conference Season 2 Friday, Jan. 20, at Robinsons Place Antipolo.

Almond Vosotros highlighted his comeback from a week-long break by again leading the Tropang Giga’s charge, topscoring with 11 points and four rebounds as the telecommunications franchise won its sixth leg title for the season worth another P100,000.

The grand slam-seeking team also got valuable contributions from Chris Exciminiano, big man Lervin Flores and new acquisition Luis Villegas, who had three points each in the rousing win.

TNT was coached by Mau Belen.

The Kings received the runner-up purse of P50,000 as they couldn’t complete a Cinderella finish that saw them foil Purefoods in the quarterfinals, 13-11, and Cavitex in the semis, 21-15.

Kim Aurin led Ginebra with nine points.

Without Vosotros in the opening leg, the Tropang Giga made it as far as the semifinals, and then lost to Cavitex Braves in the battle for third place.
