    THE Zamboanga Valientes have forfeited their games in Leg 6 of the PBA 3x3 tournament, failing to put up a squad due to injuries.

    Mac Cardona went down with an injury early in the series and the Valientes, who have Kyle Neypes, JR Cawaling, Rey Demesa, Gino Jumao-as, and Das Esa in the pool, played with just a three-man roster since Leg 3.

    Under FIBA rules, teams stricken by COVID-19 or injuries to players are spared from possible tournament fines, according to PBA 3x3 director Joey Guanio.

    The manpower issue left the Valientes winless in the entire six legs of the 3x3’s maiden conference.

    It also left them out of the tournament's grand finale set on Dec. 29 also at the Big Dome where the top 10 teams at the conclusion of the six-leg meet will vie for the P750K top purse.
