Bryan Santos continues to impress as TIP wallops debuting Hyperwash

The Technological Institute of the Philippines continued to run roughshod in the 2019 PBA D-League Foundation Cup, this time pulverizing Hyperwash by 21 points, 92-71, Monday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Senegalese big man Papa Ndiaye was unstoppable down low with his 28 points and 17 rebounds. He also had a steal and a block as the Engineers took an early lead in the Group A standings at 2-0.

Bryan Santos added 19 points, eight boards, three assists, a steal, and a block, while Christian Daguro got 12 points and two boards in the win.

“We’ve been continuing what we’ve been doing since summer until eventually, we get better,” said an emotional coach Potit de Vera, who dedicated the victory to his late father.

“Yung process of getting better, sana lang makita ng dad ko. I just wish he saw these two games. Kita mo naman against veterans, I really was surprised na ganoon ang outcome ng game. But one thing we had going is we’re a team since the summer, so the chemistry and the spirit for the team is there. We’re willing to play for each other,” he continued.

TIP broke away in the second half, slowly building on the lead. They then staged a 16-3 assault to open the payoff period that turned a 73-59 lead to its biggest at 27, 89-62, with 3:59 remaining.

Everything went the way of the Engineers. They won the rebounding battle, 63 to 42, and also controlled the paint, scoring 48 to the Vipers’ 22.

Khasim Mirza topscored for Hyperwash with 22 points, six assists, and four rebounds. Jeric Fortuna got 16 points and three rebounds in the losing effort.
