Barangay Ginebra San Miguel’s Scottie Thompson, Alaska’s Robbie Herndon and Blackwater rookie Chris Bitoon will represent their teams in the PBA Virtual Three-Point Shootout.
Thompson handily beat Mark Caguioa, Herndon downed Mike DiGregorio and Bitoon dominated Diego Dario in the tournament using the PBA-themed video game Basketball Slam.
The virtual tourney was held after a partnership between the PBA and Huawei.
Two players meet in a four-round shootout with the total points made determining each team’s representative in a knockout-style tournament.
The winner will donate P250,000 to his chosen charitable organization.
Participants have the option to use either themselves or their teammates.
Thompson won 256-157 over Caguioa using a video game version of LA Tenorio, Aljon Mariano and Prince Caperal and himself.
Herndon tallied 203 points against 120 for DiGregorio while playing a virtual version of himself in all four rounds.
Bitoon, selected in the third round of last year’s PBA Draft, proved to be too much for Dario 308-264 using veteran teammate KG Canaleta.
