GBL Gilas Cup 1st Conference (5’10) – The battle between the grizzled veterans of the league against the up and coming young guns.
Quick starts are starting to be a norm for Underrated. Taking a no plays off mentality they started the game establishing their running game. Pressure defense from time to time took Hashtag off guard and never seem to gain any rhythm in the ball game. Bodie Dienzo again paced his team in scoring, his team high 17 pts were a juggernaut for Hashtag. Halftime was 37 – 24.
In the second half, Hashtag tried to keep the fight. Mheel Pasos led his team with 11 pts. Pasos along with Jim Paul Infante trimmed Underrated’s lead going into the 4th quarter. But Underrated’s veteran playmaker Bimbo Ortiz kept his team from harm’s way. Ortiz 16 pts, 4 asts & 6 stls night was just too much as he always put water to Hashtag’s fire. A fairly easy win for Underrated 75 – 50 Hashtag.
