    PIONEER Pro Tibay earned a shot at the Leg 3 championship of the PBA 3x3 after a thrilling 16-15 win over top seed Terrafirma on Sunday in their semifinals showdown at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

    The guest team watched in horror as it lost a 14-10 lead when the Dyip finally caught up with them, 15-all, with 15.4 seconds left on a clutch Jed Bulawan shot from deep.

    But Carlo De Chavez wasn’t about to let Pioneer down, driving hard to the basket with three seconds left for the go-ahead basket.

    Terrence Tumalip then missed a potential game-winning two for the Dyip, paving the way for Pioneer to reach the finals of the pro league’s half-court tournament for the first time.

    Great Sista comeback

    Second seed Sista Super Sealers arranged a title showdown with Pioneer behind a 19-15 comeback victory against Purefoods TJ Titans later in the day.

    The winner will be crowned Leg 3 champion and takes home the top purse of P100,000.

    Meanwhile, the Dyip and Titans were relegated to the battle for third place.
