Francisco Tancioco catches fire as Taguig survives Laguna to go to 2-0 in NBL

Francisco Tancioco towed Taguig City to victory, surviving Laguna, 79-75, in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go NBL Chairman’s Cup, Sunday at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Down by one late in the match, LJ Mayo found Tancioco on the left wing with a bail-out pass, before the latter buried the cold-blooded triple for the lead, 76-75.

In the ensuing play, the Pistons made a crucial turnover. King Fadriquela inbounded the ball to Alex Junsay, however, he failed to catch the leather as he slipped.

Generals’ Richmond Gilbero made them pay, making both of his free throws. Still, the door was open for Laguna, down by just three.

However, Junsay’s game-tying three-pointer attempt was too strong, before Taguig’s JR Yasa iced the game with a freebie.
