Ginebra charged in the second half and pulled off a 108-97 victory over Alaska to advance to the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup semifinals Tuesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

LA Tenorio took the responsibility of taking the life out of the Aces, unleashing 31 points, three assists, and two rebounds, including the dagger floater to put his side up, 102-91, with 1:32 to play and seal the deal.

But it wasn’t just Tenorio who did the work, as Ginebra also leaned on its young guns to stun the second-seed Aces and overcome a twice-to-win disadvantage.

Aljon Mariano nabbed a career-high 20 markers and eight boards, Kevin Ferrer had 15 points and five rebounds, and Scottie Thompson got 10 markers, nine rebounds, three steals, and two assists to carry the Gin Kings to the Final Four.

Ginebra will face Star in the best-of-7 semifinals to begin on Thursday.
