WNU advances to
Jr. PBA regionals

The West Negros University Jr. Mustangs beat Bacolod Tay Tung High School Thunderbolts, 99-68, yesterday to clinch the provincial championship and advance into the regional finals of the 2nd PBA Coca-Cola Jr. PBA Youngstars in Cebu City this weekend.

Taking a three-point lead in the first quarter, 23-20, behind Kobe Vizcarra’s seven-point production and Ericson Yulo’s five-point delivery, the young Mustangs sustained the momentum in the second quarter to post a 48-34 halftime advantage.

The Thunderbolts tried to bounce back in the third quarter as Miguel Corteza exploded with 14 points, but the rest of the team had some difficulty in finding their range as only Sam Belangel managed to contribute an additional five points.
