SBP Cup Season 1 – Another playoff survival slot is up for grabs, with the winner advancing further onto the playoffs. Kaplog’s Frederick Marzan started the game on fire his game high 22 pts shook the Greyhounds and caught them off-guard. He sliced his way for easy fastbreak points and kept attacking Greyhound’s fronthcourt. Kaplog took a 15-8 run in the first period and cushioned their way to a 28-24 halftime advantage.
The second half was a different story. Greyhounds defensive scheme shifted to a 1-2-2 zone defense. They forced Kaplogs to long range shots and this enabled their running game. The ever reliable Mharl Haresco kept his team afloat scoring team a high 21 pts and 10 rebs. He was ably supported by Diaro Canillas 10 pts 4 rebs 4 asts and Jon Lising’s double double performance (11 pts & 18 rebs).
