The Tropang Giga face the NorthPort Batang Pier at 10 a.m. to begin a busy 14-game slate before fans and shoppers.

Led by Almond Vosotros, TNT ruled last week’s first leg at Robinsons Magnolia in Quezon City to claim the P100,000 top purse and 100 tour points.

Joining TNT and NorthPort in Pool A are Sista and Terrafirma.

First leg runner-up Barangay Ginebra San Miguel will be in Pool B with San Miguel Beer and Limitless while Pool C has Purefoods, Cavitex, Pioneer Pro Tibay and Master Sardines.

Completing the cast are Meralco, Platinum Karaoke and Zamboanga Valientes in Pool D.

The top two teams in each pool will advance to the quarterfinals set tomorrow.

Vosotros, Samboy de Leon and new additions Gryann Mendoza and Ping Exciminiano took down Ginebra in the first leg finals to gain a headstart in the quest to rule the third conference.

But TNT is looking to have more leg wins, compared to the previous two conferences when it failed to add another title despite ruling the first leg each time.
