Pogoy dropped 30 points on a 12-of-23 shooting from the field as he spearheaded the Tropang Giga’s second half breakaway to finish the elimination with a 8-3 record and put themselves in a good position in the quarterfinals.

Mikey Williams bounced back from a lackluster performance the last time out with 19 points while Glenn Khobuntin added 16. Kelly Williams and Kib Montalbo chipped in 12 and 10 respectively as TNT gave coach Chot Reyes and JP Erram a winning sendoff before they join Gilas Pilipinas in Jakarta, Indonesia for the FIBA Asia Cup 2022.

TNT unloaded a 15-6 run to create the much-needed separation in the hard-fought contest that saw both teams engaged in a back-and-forth affair in the first half. That rally turned a 57-52 lead into a 72-58 lead late in the third frame.

Cautious of the Ginebra’s “never-say-die spirit”, TNT showed no letup in the final frame as Pogoy and Glenn Khobuntin connived on a scintillating 14-3 spurt which completely changed the complexion of the match as the Tropang Giga built its largest lead at 24 after that run, 96-72.

Five players scored in double-digits for Ginebra led by the 18 points of Japeth Aguilar. LA Tenorio and Christian Standhardinger added 15 points apiece but were not enough as the Gin Kings saw their four-game win streak halted, dropping them to a 6-2 record.
