    PIONEER Pro Tibay emerged the No. 1 seed heading to the playoffs of the PBA 3x3 Second Conference after a 20-16 stunner over previously undefeated Meralco at the close of pool play on Sunday.

    Christian Rivera finished with a game-high 13 points to lead Pioneer on top of Pool A and clinch the top seed in the Leg 5 quarterfinals of the standalone tournament at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    Pioneer and Meralco finished with identical 3-1 records, but the team of coach Lester Del Rosario clinched the top spot by virtue of the winner-over-the other rule.

    Pioneer will now play Leg 1 winner TNT Tropang Giga for a spot in the semifinals.

    TNT whipped guest team Master Sardines for the last quarterfinals slot, 21-7.
