MANDALUYONG--Pasig clinched the last seat in the Chooks-To-Go-FIBA 3x3 Asia-Pacific Super Quest after edging TSV Reading Cinemas, 19-13, at the SM Megamall Fashion Hall on Sunday.
The Kings held on despite Tim Coenraad carrying the load for the Australians to force a Final 4 clash with 3x3 EXE Premier later Sunday.
The first four and a half minutes of the game was virtually a battle between Coenraad and Nikola Pavlovic as Coenraad scored TSV's first five points while Pavlovic had five of Pasig's first seven points.
But just as Coenraad began fizzling, Joshua Munzon and Taylor Statham stepped up to spark the Kings' breakaway.
Pavlovic made nine points, while Munzon added five and Statham put in four for Pasig, which will face 3x3 EXE Premier in the semifinals.
Coenraad finished with seven markers for TSV.
Pasig 19 -- Pavlovic 9, Munzon 5, Statham 4, Rike 1.
TSV Reading Cinema 13 -- Coenraad 7, Allen 4, Tudehope 2, Keating 0.
