As many have expected, number four and the number five squads of the South Division reaches the its decisive Game 3 showdown. This is a do-or-die match and whichever team wins tonight will proceed to the Group B semi-finals round.
In Game 2, it seems all is already lost from the Zamboanga squad as they were staring a huge 18-point advantage from their opponent.
Yet, Alvin Pasaol, Robin Roño, Santi Santillan, and Raffy Reyes decided not to quit and gave the Athletics a challenge after they trimmed down the double-digit deficit to only seven points.
However, time is no longer on the side of the Family’s Brand Sardines-backed squad and Batangas escaped with a victory and most importantly they were able to tie the series to 1-all.
“Zamboanga is a strong team, babalik at babalik at babalik ‘yan. So suwerte kami na na-sustain namin yung [lead],” said Batangas head coach Woody Co.
The winning club of Game 2 was paced by Jhaymo Eguilos with his 17 points and 11 rebounds production while Jason Melano added with 14 markers and eight boards.
For team Zamboanga, Leonard Santillan was their main-man in scoring as he dropped 23 points and 11 rebounds while teammate Robin Rono and Alvin Pasaol added 20 and 14 points respectively.
