Bruins runaway with a win over JCI Culiat, 82 – 66 in the triple-header finale of the opening day at the Beverly Place Basketball Court, Mexico City.

\n

A familiar face shined bright for the Bruins, as KOTC Stalwart Elmer Cantos suited up for the Pampanga Tournament, notching a double-double with 12 points\n and 11 rebounds to go with 3 steals and 3 blocks. Team Captain Edmund Mendoza and Jay Reyes helped Cantos and the Bruins with 15 and 16 points, respectively.\n

\n

JCI Culiat wasn’t without it’s gunners Emmanuel Reyes (31PTS, 4REBS, 6-3PT FGs) and Yves Hizon (10PTS, 4 REBS), but their depth could not match that of\n the Bruins. The opening quarter ended with a 2-pt Bruins lead, coming from a well-balanced attack. Hizon and Reyes kept JCI close, but a prolonged\n scoring drought kept the team down and allowing Edmund Mendoza to push his team up by the end of the first half.

\n

The 3rd Quarter was almost the same for JCI, finding it hard to make baskets, while the Bruins attacked the JCI defense with ball movement and 5-0 run\n by Gab Sazon. The 4th quarter proved to be friendlier to the downed JCI, as Reyes made clutch three point shots and JCI locking down on defense.

\n

The Bruins lead nearly dwindled, but they kept their calm and relied on attacking the rim and getting to the foul line. Cantos anchored the Bruins defense,\n and didn’t allow JCI to get into the game.

DMK squeaked out a 2-Point win in a physical game versus Cabalen, 73-71, in the second game of the opening day at the Beverly Place Basketball Court, Mexico\n City.

\n

An intense physical match-up between two teams who want to start the season right with a win, but only one team could come out on top. DMK was led by the\n quartet of Chan Pineda (14PTS, 8REBS), Jon Tullao (18PTS, 4REBS, 2STLS), Lanz Bautista (12PTS, 10REBS) and Martin Palo (10PTS), but Cabalen wasn’t\n without its scorers, with four players in double digits.

\n

Ariel Basilio carried the Cabalen offense, notching a near double-double with 20 points and 9 rebounds while shooting 50% from the floor. Pete Dungca,\n Giancarlo Angeles, and Bernardo Carlos all chipped in 10 points for Cabalen.

\n

From start to finish, the game was tight and very physical with no team willing to give an inch. Cabalen’s Basilio and DMK’s Bautista carried both their\n teams in the first half, but Cabalen proved to be a worthy opponent for DMK. The 3rd Quarter proved to be DMK’s chance to out gun Cabalen with Jon\n Tullao leading the way, but Ariel Basilio did not want to lose giving them the 56-52 lead into the final quarter.

\n

The final quarter was the most intense, with players colliding and giving hard fouls, battling for every possession and working for every score. This is\n where Chan Pineda shined and put his team on his back, closing out the game with the win.

Inaugural Season opens up with AF1 defeating the Pampanga Archers, 86 – 71, at the Beverly Place Basketball Court, Mexico City.

\n

Aldrian Soriano led the way for AF1, notching a monster double-double performance, scoring 25 points and grabbing 13 rebounds while shooting at an insane\n 86% from the field. But Soriano had plenty of help from Brian Lugtu (13 PTS, 4 steals), Nino Yumul (16 PTS) and Vitoy David (12 PTS, 4 REBS, 50% from\n 3PT).

\n

Pace and space is what proved to be effective for the boys in Purple as they blitzed the Pampanga Archers defense with fast break baskets, well-timed passes\n and crashing the offensive boards. Soriano proved to be a force in the interior, going against the bigger Jami Gadi and challenging the big man on\n every offensive and defensive possession, and eventually causing Gadi to foul out.

\n

The Pampanga Archers were led by Kit Santos (24PTS, 4 REBS) and gunner Ken Koo (15PTS, 4-Made 3PT FGs), and put up a valiant effort, but proved to be too\n little for the AF1 Offense. Star big man Jami Gadi scored 8 Points and grabbed 7 Rebounds before fouling out.

Concentrix nabbed win number two in the 2020 Kings of the Court Corporate Commercial invitationals after demolishing MSERV, 93-63, in their Sunday evening\n encounter at The Upper Deck Lifestyle Center in Ortigas.

\n

Four players scored in double-figures for Concentrix, led by Adan Lagnas who finished with a team-high 15 points, spiked by three three-pointers. Concentrix\n ran circles around MSERV through the first three quarters, leading by as much as 37 at the start of the final quarter.

\n

Rom Talagtag and Tey Hermoso registered 11 points apiece, while Steve Nadal added 10 for Concentrix.

\n

David Guhiting was the lone bright spot for MSERV after tallying 35 points, built on 6-of-16 shooting from three-point land. No other player for MSERV\n finished in double-figures.

\n

With a win-loss record that now stands at 2-2, Concentrix solidified their hold on a playoff spot in this six-team tournament. MSERV, on the other hand,\n drops to 1-3.

Exile kept its win-loss slate immaculate in the 2020 Kings of the Court Corporate Commercial invitationals following their 90-69 disposal of Maynilad,\n Sunday inside The Upper Deck Lifestyle Center in Ortigas.

\n

Now at 4-0, the Exile ballclub assured itself of top billing in the semifinals after blasting another opponent by double figures. Behind the big numbers\n of Jay Arcusa and Luis Palaganas, Exile waltzed to another victory against a Maynilad side who missed the services of Week 4 hero Von Lanete.

\n

The sweet-shooting Arcusa knocked down five triples to finish with team-high 19 points. Palaganas, who played college ball for the UE Red Warriors,\n registered 14 markers and grabbed four rebounds.

\n

Arol Basilio tallied 19 points and collared six rebounds to pace Maynilad, who stumbled to 1-3. Allen Virtudazo and Du Canlas added 16 and 11 markers respectively.

Eton Properties gave debuting Alpha Seven a rude welcome in the 2020 Kings of the Court Corporate Commercial Invitationals, earning a 111-105 win Sunday\n inside The Upper Deck Lifestyle Center.

\n

The 2019 KOTC champions rode the hot shooting of Mark Francisco who lighted up the famed Ortigas venue with 48 points, spiked by eight three-pointers.\n The 2019 Final Most Valuable Player tallied 67% of his field goal attempts, while also grabbing seven rebounds, to lead Eton to their third win\n in five games.

\n

Alpha Seven opened its campaign in the six-team tournament, parading a solid lineup headed by Reymark Matias, Niño Marquez and Joseph Lingao-Lingao.\n The league newcomers hang tough against the reigning titlists, trailing by just five at the start of the payoff period.

\n

Backstopping Francisco were Mitchell Tan and Jae Yap, who tallied 19 and 13 points respectively. Tan, Eton’s court general, also tacked 10 assists\n across his name to essay a double-double performance.

\n

Matias paced Alpha Seven with 24 points, while Clark Torrente added 19.

LSBC finished the elimination round of the KOTC Q1 Inter Pick-Up League on a high after a 90-76 win over DU Basketball - Sunday, at The Upper Deck Lifestyle\n Center in Ortigas, Pasig City.

\n

Four players scored in double figures for LSBC, led by Joseph Prodigo's 23-point performance. Brandon Espiras and Kenneth Consebido each scored 15 points,\n while Jay Magleo finished with 12 markers. It took three quarters for the 'Brotherhood' to create some separation against the shorthanded, but feisty\n DU Basketball side, who shackled LSBC in the second period despite missing their main gunners.

\n

After being down 8-12 at the end of the first quarter, the Michael Bacani-mentored squad went on a 20-5 blast to start the second quarter led by JC Cifra's\n 13 points in the surge, as they grabbed the lead at the halftime break, 35-22. But despite the shaky end to the first half, LSBC recovered one step\n at a time asthey opened the second half by regaining the advantage, 44-41 midway third quarter. Their steady play would carry over to the payoff period.\n

\n

Tired legs factored-in for DU to start the fourth, as LSBC's defense clogged their sweet spots. Following the defensive lockdown, a 15-5 scoring run from\n the blue shirts enabled them to blow the game wideopen and hold a 71-59 advantage midway fourth. LSBC would pounce 19 more in the latter half of the\n period to secure their second win of the season.

\n

Of LSBC's 50 total rebounds, seven players keyed at least five boards in the count which further boosted their run in the last quarter, where they finally\n solved the DU puzzle. Janjan Apostol and Brandon Espiras each grabbed nine rebounds, six boards each for Jay Magleo and James Escaran, seven for Mark\n Magleo, and five rebounds each for Kenneth Consebido and Matthew Lopez.

\n

JC Cifra top-scored in the gallant stand from DU Basketball with 24 points, powered by six made triples. Veccito Mawis finished 14 points and six rebounds,\n 11 rebounds and seven assists for Marco Macario, Prince Malatag added 10 points and nine rebounds. DU Basketball will enter the playoffs with a 2-3\n record.

Trailing 29-40 at the halftime break, Finastra found their groove on both ends as they held the white shirts to just three points, four minutes into the\n third quarter. In that span, leading scorers Bernie Leonida and Carl Lasala connived to spearhead a 14-point barrage to force a 43-all count. through\n defensive stops, Factseet was able to weather the storm and regain a double digit advantage to end the quarter, 64-54.

\n

Come payoff period, Finastra was still knocking at Factset's door as they slowly trimmed the gap back to a single digit to open the final chapter. Now\n in crunch time, the McKinley Hill-based team went to their money man in Medrano, while allso getting solid contributions from their cast. Factset built\n a 13-point- 73-60 lead midway through the payoff period- slowly pulling away from Finastra.

\n

The white shirts would prove too much in the endgame as they opened a 20-point advantage in the final minutes, thanks to a 16-4 finishing kick which gave\n them an 82-62 gap which would prove as a tough climb for Finastra in the last stretch.

\n

Leonida and Lasala led Finastra with 18 and 17 markers respectively. Daniel Aloroy made solid contributions with nine rebounds along with seven markers\n while Jivesh Lansang had eight points and eight boards.
