MACAU — San Miguel hopes to be the first Philippine team to secure a podium finish in the East Asia Super League here.

After getting beaten in the semifinals by Lance Stephenson and his Liaoning Flying Leopards, all is not lost for the Beermen as they figure in a battle for 3rd place Sunday to end The Terrific 12 tournament at the Tap Seac Multi-sport Pavilion.

The opponent? Another CBA team in the Zhejiang Guangsha Lions.

San Miguel turned cold in the second quarter against Lioaning and never recovered, ultimately taking a 111-89 beating.

Meanwhile, the Lions had key errors late that led to a 77-76 loss to South Korea’s Seoul SK Knights.

Tip off for San Miguel-Zhejiang will be at 5:00 p.m. which will be followed by a 7:00 p.m. showdown between Liaoning and Seoul for the Terrific 12 title.
