Iloilo Pros beats
YBAC in friendly

The visiting Pros Basketball Teams from Iloilo prevailed over host Your Basketball Athletic Club in both the 50-Up and 50-below divisions during their friendly games over the weekend at the West Negros University gym, a press release from YBAC said.

In the 50-Up division, YBAC displayed a commanding performance in the early minutes of the game with a close 26-23 run in the first quarter, but Iloilo caught up in the second quarter for a 59-56 lead.

The head-to-head match-up continued in the fourth quarter until the vising Iloilo squad pulled away with a 16-8 blast in the final stages of the game, the press release said.

In the 50 below, Iloilo also outplayed YBAC, 86-82.

Despite the loss at home, incoming YBAC president Edwin Fregil said the friendly games strengthened the ties between the Bacolod-based ballclub and the Iloilo Pros.

“This is only one of the friendly games scheduled this year. We have a number of friendlies coming up in the next few months,” Fregil said.*
