BIG CHILL defeated Fruitas in overtime, 19-18, to claim the last Finals berth in the PBA D-League 3-on-3 at the Blue Eagles gym Tuesday.
Mac Montilla sent the game into overtime with a buzzer-beating two-pointer, before Mar Villahermosa buried another deuce to settle the outcome of the tightly-fought match.
Big Chill won despite having only two players in overtime as Mark Canlas fouled out. Terrence Romeo, the other member of the team, didn’t see action.
The victory shoved the Superchargers to a title showdown with Blackwater Sports on Friday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum in between the PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinals.
The winning team will receive P20,000 and will represent the Philippines in the Fiba-Asia 3-on-3 in Doha, Qatar next month.
