SBP CUP SEASON 1 – A Championship game for the SBP Cup Divison 2 with the Batokers with a twice to beat advantage going into the game.
It was a nip and tuck affair early in the ball game. Greyhounds grit and grind game plan was paying dividends in the first half. John Lising’s steady game kept his team alive against the John Jagdon led Batokers. First half was pretty close with the greyhounds leading by the skin of their teeth (29 – 25).
The 3rd quarter was much of the same as Marvin Gomez near double double game (8 pts & 10 rebs) kept his team’s fight. But Greyhounds’ Bong Reyes neutralized Gomez in the clutch and produced his own 9 pts & 15 reb output. Greg Jocson with a game high 19 pts for Greyhounds that kept his team offense balance with his perimeter shooting.
Offensive rebound was Batokers’ advantage but Greyhounds’ defense proved to be pivotal when it matters most in crunch time. An upset win by the Greyhounds 55 – Batokers 44 and set up their own do or die match.
