Buildrite scored a 55-54 win over Modern Windows to bolster their bid for a twice-to-beat advantage in the next round of the Cebu Architects Basketball Club 2022 last Sunday at the PAREF Springdale gym.
Playing without leading scorer Kim-Kim Rebosura, Buildrite showed its depth and raced off to a 12-0 lead. Modern Windows tried to rally in the game’s late stages but Buildrite hung on to get the hard-earned victory to even their win-loss record at 2-2 and send their opponents tumbling to 1-3.
Wily guard Darren Morandante led the team with 16 points and five rebounds, while Alexander Vidal swished in five triples for 15 points. Montecristo Salvador also lorded over the shaded lane, amassing a double-double of 12 points and 18 rebounds.
