Bulacan, Paranaque secure semis berth in NBL


Bulacan and Paranaque secured the top two seeds and an outright semifinals berth at the end of the eliminations of the National Basketball League (NBL).

The Bulacan Makabayan beat the CamSur Express, 98-85, last Wednesday while the Paranaque Aces picked up wins over the Laguna Pistons, 81-80, last Wednesday and the Dasmariñas Ballers, 80-77, last Saturday to clinch the first two spots in the standings.

With the wins, Bulacan and Paranaque finished the eliminations with a 7-2 slate with the Makabayan and the Aces claiming the incentive for the top two of advancing to the semifinals outright.

Dominick Fajardo and Jerick Sumampong had 22 and 21 points each for Bulacan in the match against CamSur to secure the victory.

Richmond Sunga had 26 points in Paranaque’s win over Laguna, while JR Galit had 13 points, seven rebounds, and five assists for the Aces in the victory over Dasmariñas.

The NBL playoffs begin on Wednesday with knockout quarterfinal matches at the Philippine Christian University-Dasmariñas gym with the third-seed Laguna Pistons facing the sixth-seed Nueva Ecija Go Bespren at 4:00 pm, and No. 4 CamSur Express batting No. 5 Dasmariñas Ballers at 6:00 pm.
