Petra Cement-Roxas asserted itself over the undermmaned MisOr as they crushed the Brew Authoritea, 113-87, in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup, on Saturday at the Pagadian City Gymnasium.
Already up by seven after the first, the Vanguards poured it on in the second canto and unleashed a massive 30-18 blast that put them up, 58-39, at halftime. The third canto was more of the same as Roxas got what they wanted whenever they wanted it en route to establishing a 94-62 lead at the end of three periods.
The Vanguardshave now leapfrogged Zamboanga City, who lost earlier in the day against Clarin, with a 4-2 win-loss card, good for fourth place.
Already without JR Cawaling (hamstring), Jayson Ballesteros (back spasms), Reil Cervantes (Achilles tendinitis), Ralph Salcedo (back), Andoy Estrella (back spasms), and Lucas Tagarda (ankle sprain) last night, MisOr also did not have Mark Sarangay (back spasms) and Paul Sanga (hand) in the game.
James Castro filled the stat sheet with 17 points, eight assists, and five rebounds for Roxas.
Homegrown Jordan Intic had his best game of the season with 14 points and seven rebounds, while RJ Deles added 13 points, five rebounds, and four assists off the bench. Six-foot-eight Fil-Libyan Seraj Elmejrab also played his best game in a Roxas uniform, tallying 11 points in 15 minutes of action.
MisOr, which only had seven players in the game, was paced by Mac Baracael with 29 points, seven rebounds, and four assists.
Ronjay Buenafe, who exploded for 35 big points last night, was limited to 17 points on 3-of-17 shooting from the field.
This was the Brew Authoritea's fourth loss in a row, falling to 2-5, tied with Kapatagan for seventh place. (JNP)
