Davao Occidental Tigers rout VisMin All-Stars in Dumper All-Star Game


PAGADIAN, ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR—The visiting Davao Occidental Dumper-Cocolife dismantled the VisMin Super Cup All-Stars by 22, 111-89, in the Dumper All-Star Game, Tuesday at the Pagadian City Gymnasium here.

John Wilson, who played for Clarin last conference, was very familiar with the venue. He threw 30 points on 7-of-12 shooting from deep in just 22 minutes and 40 seconds of floor time.

“Siyempre pinaghandaan talaga namin ito kahit exhibition game lang ito kasi alam naming malakas ‘yung VisMin All-Stars,” said Wilson.

Davao utilized a huge first half to boost them to the victory and the P500,000 cash prize.

The Tigers raced to a 29-18 first period before extending their advantage to 16 points entering the halftime break, 58-42.

The closest VisMin could get in the fourth quarter was 12 after a Cris Dumapig layup at the 8:45 mark, 76-88.

Then Rob Celiz and Wilson retaliated with 11 straight points to give Davao a fresh 23-point advantage with 5:45 to go, 99-76.

Emman Calo had 18 points, five rebounds, and three assists, while Celiz and Marco Balagtas each tallied 11 points apiece.

Gab Dagangon and Bonbon Custodio also added eight points each for the Tigers.

Rhaffy Octobre led the VisMin All-Stars with 15 points, going 5-of-7 from behind the arc.

Edrian Lao chipped in 14 points while Mac Baracael delivered 12 points.

Earlier in the day, the VisMin Executives, composed of team owners and coaches, prevailed over the Dumper Executives, 83-78.
