SBP Cup Season 1 – This was a game between two teams with contrasting styles, Kingsmen’s slow and deliberate halfcourt game against Strikers run and gun style.
First half was close with Kingsmen Ryan Monilla providing the offensive punch for his team. His 3-7 shooting from the 3pt area was key for Kingsmen to take a slim 31-26 lead into halftime.
Strikers’s Jeatro Jaurigue bench production was key for Strikers to climb up and rally from behind. His team high 19 pts almost keyed Strikers comeback. But Kingsmen’s Hadjer Dullah took matters into his own hands as he silenced Strikers’attack with back to back triples. His game high 27 pts, 13 rebs and 5 asts was more than enough as his team rode behind his back and onto the sunset for the win. Kingsmen 63 – Strikers 55.
