SJI bags SBP crown in Milo tour­ney

Sun Star Bacolod - - Sports - BY HENRY G. DOBLE

ST. John’s In­sti­tute dom­i­nated Ba­colod Tay Tung High School, 7044, to re­tain the crown of the Sama­hang Bas­ket­bol ng Pilip­inas Passerelle Twin Tour­na­ment Ba­colod leg on Satur­day at the NOTF Gym in Ba­colod City.

The Baby Fal­cons crip­pled BTTHS with a full-court trap­ping de­fense to erect a com­mand­ing 354 lead in the first quar­ter.

Turnovers led to sev­eral break­away layups by Paul Barcelona who scored 14 points, Car­los Reonal made seven points and the of­fen­sive put­backs by Luke Za­p­ata re­sulted to six points while the Baby Thun­der­bolts missed all their free throws in that canto, thus the rout.

John Or­das scored 12 mark­ers in the sec­ond quar­ter for Tay Tung but it hardly mat­tered as the Baby Fal­cons led by Burj La­puos and Matthew Ramirez main­tained an im­pos­ing lead at the break, 47-18.

The of­fense of Julio Teruel and the de­fense of Zachary Javelosa, Miggy Sy, Tabby Es­partero and Stan Va­len­cia lim­ited Tay Tung to five points in the third quar­ter to ex­tend the lead anew, 58-23.

Coach Arvin Gustilo did some ad­just­ment in the game es­pe­cially on the de­fen­sive end af­ter the elim­i­na­tion round loss to Tay Tung. “I’m glad the boys re­sponded and fol­lowed our game plan,” said an ec­static Gustilo.

Mean­while, the Univer­sity of St. La Salle-a fin­ished sec­ond run­ner-up post while the SJI Team B got the Sports­man­ship Award in the SBP di­vi­sion.*
