Pasig Grindhouse defeats the MPBL's San Juan Knights in the finals of the12-team, single round robin tournament
MANILA, Philippines – Chooks-to-Go continues its inaugural 3X3 venture with the kickoff and preseason of the Chooks-to-Go 3X3 President's Cup at the Ynares Sports Arena on Monday, January 14.
In the finals game of the 12-team, single round robin tournament, Pasig Grindhouse defeated the MPBL's San Juan Knights, 21-15.
It was a war of former PBA pros as Pasig's Dylan Ababou and San Juan's Mac Cardona each chipped in 10 points in the biggest game of the 6-hour long tournament.
Joining Ababou in the winners' circle are ABL veteran Joshua Munzon, former Thailand import Taylor Statham and ex-NU Bulldog Troy Rike.
It was a tough grind for Grindhouse as they had to beat a loaded Bataan Risers squad composed of UAAP stars Alvin Pasaol, Sean Manganti, Anton Asistio and Santi Santillan in the semis before downing one of MPBL's top teams.
Pasig now has a bigger target on its back as the full 3X3 tournament formally starts on February 16 at SM Megamall.
