MANILA, Philippines–Almond Vosotros capped his sizzling shooting performance in the PBA 3×3 Third Conference playoffs with another championship as TNT whipped Purefoods, 21-13, and ruled Leg 3 on Tuesday at Robinsons Magnolia.

The veteran TNT guard finished with a game-high 12 points as he almost outscored the entire Titans team during the finals in leading the Tropang Giga to their second title in the last three legs of the standalone tournament.
