Jorey Napoles shines as Marinerong Pilipino romps AMA


The Marinerong Pilipino Skippers proved why they are regarded as one of this conference’s favorites, whipping the AMA Online Education Titans, 95-83, Monday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Jorey Napoles orchestrated the opening day win with his 25 points, 15 rebounds, and five blocks as the Skippers started their campaign on a good note.

Also helping Marinrong Pilipino’s cause were Trevis Jackson — who collected 13 points, three boards, and three assists — and Franky Johnson, who finished with 13.

Fielding in a revamped roster wasn’t a problem at all for coach Koy Banal, as the TIP Engineers core perfectly meshed with his top guys like Jackson, Javi Gomez de Liaño, and Robbie Manalang.

“Hindi na masyado nahirapan yung players mag-adjust. They know each other and although they are young, what we have is a solid team,” he said.

The Skippers matched everyone’s expectations, as they dominated the Titans down low, winning the battle of the boards, 73-43, as well as grabbing 21 offensive boards that led to 30 second chance points.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise, also, that it helped Marinerong Pilipino jump ahead, 49-30 at the half, and even erected 21-point advantages at numerous points in the third frame.

Irvin Palencia carried AMA with 18 points, six assists, and three rebounds in the defeat.


The Scores:

Marinerong Pilipino 95 — Napoles 25, Jackson 13, Johnson 13, Gomez de Liaño 11, Ndiaye 11, Manalang 6, Thiele 6, Medina 4, Matignas 2, B. Santos 2, Soriano 2, Ramos 0, I. Santos 0, Toth 0.
