Enguio, Mendoza stamp class, lead Muntinlupa to rousing NBL debut


Muntinlupa had a rousing debut, crushing Quezon District 1 and 4 by 55 points, 107-52, in the Chooks-to-Go NBL Chairman’s Cup 2021 restart at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga, Saturday.

Khenth Guiab scored the game’s first four points for Sulong Stan, but it would be the last time they’d see the scoreboard in their favor.

The Water Warriors then retaliated with 19 unanswered points to establish an early 15-point lead, 19-4.

By halftime, Muntinlupa’s advantage already ballooned to a whopping 33 points, 52-19, as it held Sulong Stan to just six points in the second period.

High-leaping Biboy Enguio had a monster game for the Water Warriors, tallying 18 points, new-NBL record 21 rebounds, seven rebounds, four blocks, and two steals.
