Go fires 10 treys for Team Duterte


SEC­RE­TARY Christo­pher “Bong” Go shot 10 triples as Team Duterte eked out an 83-81 vic­tory against BJMP in its de­but game in the Go For Hoops Bas­ket­ball Tour­na­ment on Fri­day at the Ge­n­e­sis 88 Gym.

Go, the Spe­cial As­sis­tant to Pres­i­dent Rody Duterte, fin­ished the game with 47 points to open Team Duterte’s cam­paign on a right track.

The sweet-shoot­ing trusted aid of the chief ex­ec­u­tive dis­played su­perb shoot­ing from be­hind the arc capped with a right cor­ner boom­ing trey that gave Team Duterte a 81-78 lead un­der three min­utes in the game.

Team Duterte banked on that clutch three-pointer to pull away with the hard-earned win.

BJMP threat­ened Team Duterte for the last time with its tran­si­tion at­tack in the wind­ing sec­onds of the match.

But the Jail­men's fi­nal play went boot­less as they failed to make a heave as the time ex­pires.

Four play­ers led by Su­ma­gang who scored 19 fin­ished with dou­ble dig­its for BJMP which also got qual­ity min­utes from Bu­matay (15), Fron­doza (13) and Donguilles (12).

John Sevilla chipped in 14 bas­kets for Team Duterte.

Both teams man­aged to trade ral­lies all game long that spiced up the epic con­test.

BJMP mounted a huge run mid­way of the third canto to take the up­per­hand.

But the ad­van­tage dis­solved quickly as Go waxed hot to ma­neu­ver Team Duterte back in the game.
