Limitless App’s Marvin Hayes became the top-ranked player at the conclusion of the PBA 3x3’s inaugural conference.

Stats provided by the league showed the veteran cager compiling 11.244 ranking points after helping the Appmasters capture the Grand Finals last Dec. 29 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The 35-year-old Hayes was among the reasons why Limitless bucked a slow start to rule the last two legs before defeating Platinum Karaoke for the title in the Grand Finals.

Platinum’s Ryan Monteclaro placed second with 10.055 ranking points followed by Purefoods’ Joseph Eriobu with 9.681, TNT’s Almond Vosotros (8.196) and Meralco’s Alfred Batino (7.944).

Vosotros was the conference’s top scorer with 293 points as he led TNT to the first leg title while Eriobu emerged as one of the league’s best players while giving Purefoods the fourth leg championship.

Also making the top 10 are Meralco’s Dexter Maiquez (7.938), Limitless’ Jaypee Belencion (7.922), TNT’s Lervin Flores (7.815) and Martin Gozum (7.284) and Meralco’s Tonino Gonzaga (7.152).

Notable players outside of the top 10 are Platinum’s Chris de Chavez (7.047 for 12th place) and Karl Dehesa (14th with 6.849), Limitless’ Brandon Rosser (6.822 for 16th) and Terrafirma’s TH Tumalip (20th with 6.198) and Dhon Reverente (6.144 for 22nd).

No timetable has been set for the second conference due to the COVID-19 surge which forced the league to indefinitely suspend the Governors’ Cup.
