MPBL: Bataan nips Bacoor on the road


BACOOR – Bataan survived one of its toughest games away from home by nipping host Bacoor in the MPBL Datu Cup at the Strike Gymnasium Tuesday night.

The Risers came back from 20 points down in the first half before getting their bearings back and closing out strong for an 84-75 triumph over the Strikers – Bataan’s 14th consecutive win.

Earlier, Pampanga salvaged a pulsating 86-83 triumph over Pasay, which played minus suspended head coach Cholo Martin.

The Lanterns relied on big guns Levi Hernandez and Michael Juico for most part of the game, and then turned to ex-pro Jimbo Aquino, who hit a crucial triple in the 1:38 mark to give Pampanga an 83-79 cushion.
