MPBL: Bacoor, GenSan hurdle rivals

May 23, 2023

MANILA, Philippines – Bacoor and General Santos City asserted their superiority over separate rivals on Monday and keep their drive in the OKBet-MPBL (Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League) Fifth Season going at the Baliwag Star Arena in Bulacan.

The Bacoor City Strikers posted a wire-to-wire 86-69 victory over the Rizal XnetroMall Golden Coolers, while the GenSan Warriors kept on pounding till the end to batter the Bulacan Kuyas, 87-69.

Jammer Jamito and Mark Yee combined for 15 points as the Strikers buried the Golden Coolers, 73-41, late in the third quarter and proceeded to stretch their winning streak to five and climb to 9-1 in the elimination round of the 29-team, two-division tournament.

It was Jhan McHale Nermal who earned best players, however, as he sparked a 51-32 breakaway at halftime by pouring 16 of his game-high 21 points in the second quarter.

Nermal, who also chalked five rebounds, three assists and two steals, got support from Yee, who finished with 13 points and 6 rebounds, and Jamito, who contributed 11 points and three rebounds for Bacoor Coach Alex Angeles.
