Gaco vents ire on MisOr, powers Zambo City to bounce back win in VisMin

PAGADIAN, ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR — JPS Zamboanga City returned to their winning ways, nipping MisOr, 85-75, in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup, Monday at Pagadian City Gymnasium here.

JPS used a huge third quarter to enter the final frame up by 14. It dropped 26 big points while holding the Brew Authoritea to just 16, 74-60.

But Reil Cervantes’ deuce at the 1:33 mark of the payoff period capped a 15-5 blast by MisOr, bringing them within four, 75-79.

However, big men Jerwin Gaco and Gabby Espinas connived on a 5-0 run. The two put together layup and a three-pointer to seal the win for Zamboanga.

“After our loss yesterday, Jerwin talked to the team to lift their spirits up,” said JPS Zamboanga head coach Tony Pardo. Just yesterday, a buzzer-beater gave them a deflating 69-71 loss at the hands of Roxas. “He really led by example today.”

Gaco continued his fine play, producing 24 points on 11-of-16 shooting from the field, to go with 12 rebounds.

JPS hiked their win-loss card to 3-2.

Espinas also delivered a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds, alongside four assists and a block. Also in double figures were Aaron Jeruta, Med Salim, and Fran Yu, combining for 32.

JPS lorded in the paint, tallying more than half of their total points with 46,. On the other hand, MisOr only managed 28.

Joseph Sedurifa had 16 points, five rebounds, and four assists for the 2-2 Brew Authoritea.

Ronjay Buenafe and Mac Baracael — who exploded for 58 combined points last night — were limited to just nine and 10 points, respectively.
