Exile 40 Up did not lack in size and height as well as skills and experience, as they dismantled Coreganix King, 99-72, in the Inter-Pick Up Division of KOTC Invitational.


It was like a David and Goliath story but with a different ending as Exile 40 Up's size and height advantage overwhelmed the quickness of Coreganix King.


Noah Baltazar was unstoppable inside the paint as he scored 19 points, while Joey Valencia drilled four triples in his 15 markers as they led Exile 40 Up to their second straight win.


Mike Paragoso, Chris De Jesus, Larry Rivera and David Herrera combined for 35 points to provide solid bench contributions.


Although the first quarter went close with Exile needing a 7-1 run to be on top, 29-24, the next next three periods were dominated by Exile, hammering the defense inside the paint and executing series of high-low plays, until cementing their victory.


Mac Valentino put up 19 points to become Coreganix King's leader, as Dane Marilag, Allan Bartolome, and Justine Estañol gathered 14, 12, and 11 markers respectively.
