MPBL: Pasig picks up another win

The Pasig-Sta. Lucia Realtors continued to make strides in the MPBL Lakan Season and on Wednesday night, they picked up another home win following an 85-72 demolition of the Nueva Ecija-MiGuards at the Pasig Sports Complex.
Five players ended up in double figures for the Realtors led by Robbie Manalang, who led all scorers with 17 points. Jeric Teng scattered 16 markers, while Jeric Serrano chipped in 14. Josan Nimes had 12 and Lander Canon came up with 10.

With the win, the Realtors notched their eighth victory in 11 games to solidify their hold of the fourth spot of the tough northern division of this tournament put up by Senator Manny Pacquiao with PBA legend and former MVP Kenneth Duremdes serving as commissioner.

Bataan and Pampanga, two other favored squads, also prevailed over their respective rivals.

The Risers came out solid for the second straight game and outplayed the Caloocan Supremos-Victory Liner, 90-77, in the other game.

This time, it was Jai Reyes who presided on the team’s balance firepower for the Risers.  They picked up their sixth win in 11 games and forged a three-way tie for sixth to eighth places with the Bulacan Kuyas and the Pasay Voyagers.

Head coach Jong Uichico’s statement was plain and simple and the Risers responded.

“We cannot win a championship if we’re a .500 team,” Uichico told FOX Sports Philippines. “But I think we’re just getting better as a team. Compared to the start of the season, I think we’ve improved. Yun lang naman ang goal namin, to keep on improving every game.”

Reyes, an ex-pro, showed that big improvement from the previous games. He knocked in seven triples, grabbed five rebounds, and dished out three assists.

Chito Jaime also stepped up, adding 14 markers as Bataan snapped Caloocan’s five-game winning streak. The Supremos dropped to ninth place of the northern division with a 6-6 record.

Pampanga drubbed Navotas-Unipak, 83-74, to get back on the winning track.

It was a good way for the Giant Lanterns to return to the winning mode, especially after losing a heartbreaking match against the Makati Super Crunch a few days ago.

This time, Pampanga was steadier with Michael Juico finishing with a double-double performance of 19 points and 10 rebounds.

Mark Cruz also played a solid game, contributing 15 points and dishing out eight assists while Dexter Maiquez added 12 for the Giant Lanterns, who moved their way back to No. 5 spot with a 7-4 slate.
