TBAC, PPBC pace 35-Up cagefest

Talisay Basketball Athletic Club and Pastors, Police and Businessmen Club share an identical 2-0 win-loss reced to share the No. 1 spot in the 35-Up Open Basketball League bankrolled by the Province of Negros Occidental and the Department of Tourism, a press release from the organizers  said.

The tournament organized by the Basketball Coaches Association of Negros opened at NOMPAC on October 5 with PPBC upending SeaOil, 93-81.

TBAC debuted with a 98-84 win over a depleted LLZ Homi Warriors and made it double on Tuesday with an emphatic 89-68 triumph over UNAC.  PPBC tied TBAC by upsetting Province of Negros Occidental, 92-83, on the same day.

PoNO had 23 points in the first quarter, hit a low of nine points in the second, settled with 11 points at third before tying with 40 markers, the press release said.

Despite the loss, PoNO dropped to 2-1 slate barely surviving against SeaOil,  79-75, on November 3 after the Capitol boys surged to a 22-12 advantage in the opening quarter.  The Oilers recovered with a 16-10 and 35-34 third and final quarters score but came up short against time, the press release said.

SeaOil still remains in contention with a 1-2 record surprising  LLZ-Homi Warriors, 82-81 on Tuesday despite the combined 60-point effort of Sarian Ordas, Amit Teruel and Troy Sarabia.

Homi led 19-10 but the Oilers pumped a 23-9 second canto thrust and a close 16-15 windup at third.  The Warriors rallied for its final stand with a 38-33 surge but fall short by a point.

UNAC is 0-1 but is expected to recover once its lineup is completed. The Warriors are still winless in two outings, the press release added.*
