Cabahug lifts Cebu to big home win as Teng, Pasig set record for most MPBL triples

Despite missing the services of do-it-all William McAloney, the Cebu Sharks still managed to thrill their hometown crowd inside the Hoops Dome in Lapu-Lapu City, turning back the Muntinlupa Cagers, 79-62, Saturday evening.

Already short-handed, Cebu also missed Raffy Octobre late after he was called for a disqualifying foul against Mark Guillen.

Still, Patrick Cabahug willed the Sharks to a 6-2 record, firing 26 points to go along with seven rebounds.

With Cabahug doing all the work on offense, Cebu held Marikina scoreless in the first six and a half minutes of the final frame to turn a 70-all deadlock into a lead that went to as high as 21 points.

Edrian Lao added 12 markers whiel Octobre hauled down 12 boards.

Muntinlupa, who fell to 3-7, was led by Biboy Enguio’s 16 markers.

Earlier in the day, the Pasig-Sta. Lucia Realtors set the record for most triples knocked down in an MPBL game to torch the Paranaque Patriots, 100-87.

The Realtors, who racked up their fifth straight win to go up to 6-2, knocked down 21 three-pointers in the game.

Jeric Teng nailed nine of their total to tie Valenzuela’s Chris De Chavez for most triples in the game. Teng ended up with 30 points.

Argel Mendoza added 28 markers on six treys while Nic Belasco added 12 points — all from downtown.

Paranaque, who dropped to 3-7, were led by Jemal Vizcarra and Jayboy Solis, who had 15 markers each.
