ASAAN handed Magsaysay of its first de­feat via 114-107 over­time win in the 2017 Kuyamis In­ter-Mu­nic­i­pal­ity Bas­ket­ball Tour­na­ment on Satur­day at Up­per Jasaan cov­ered courts in Jasaan, Misamis Ori­en­tal.

With the win, Jasaan fi­nally takes the lead­er­ship in east­ern di­vi­sion of the Kuyamis hoopfest with a 3-1 win-loss record.

Ed­win Ma­ca­pa­gal, a former STI Olympian re­li­able, fired 22 points in lead­ing Jasaan’s come-from-be­hind win.

From a 94-91 Magsaysay lead with three ticks left in the fi­nal fourth quar­ter, Ma­ca­pa­gal sank a Hail Mary trey off the buzzer to force an over­time.

Jasaan was trail­ing most of the way, but things turned dif­fer­ent in the ex­ten­sion pe­riod.

“Gikapoy na ang Magsaysay mao nga dili na man­u­lod ang ilang mga tira,” said tour­na­ment com­mis­sioner Dan Jam­i­nal.

Jasaan out­gunned Magsaysay, 20-13 in over­time play for its third- straight vic­tory af­ter los­ing to Balin­gasag dur­ing the open­ing day ac­tion.

Jasaan’s tri­umph also spoiled the mon­strous 50-point erup­tion of Magsaysay’s top gun­ner Bu­tal Real.

Magsaysay joins Balin­gasag in sec­ond place at 2-1.

In 18-un­der boys level, Tagoloan crushed Jasaan, 103-84.

It was a dif­fer­ent story, how­ever, in vol­ley­ball men’s com­pe­ti­tion as Jasaan bested Tal­isayan in three sets, though its fe­male team yielded to Tagoloan.
