Zamboanga City-Family’s Brand Sardines emerged as champion of the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 President’s Cup after overcoming a tough stand by Nueva Ecija, 22-19, Friday at the Inspire Sports Academy in Calamba, Laguna.

Joshua Munzon’s two-point shot with 1:31 left in the contest dubbed as the “Million Peso Game” enabled Zamboanga City to complete its domination of the two-week competition and take home the top purse of P1-million.

Nueva Ecija settled for runner-up honors and P300,000 after reaching the title game with a 20-19 win over bitter rival Butuan City in the semifinals.
