Glenn Khobuntin let it all out facing San Miguel



Tiebreaker Times Glenn Khobuntin let it all out facing San Miguel Basketball News PBA  PBA Season 44 Glenn Khobuntin Columbian Dyip 2019 PBA Commissioners Cup

His stats may not be as impressive as Rashawn McCarthy, CJ Perez, and Lester Prosper produce, but Glenn Khobuntin had a big impact on the Columbian Dyip’s stunner of the San Miguel Beermen, Sunday evening.

Khobuntin only finished with eight points, but six of them came in overtime. First was a three-point play to open the period’s scoring fray, then came a triple from the right wing that gave Columbian a 132-128 lead with 42.7 seconds left.

The Dyip won, 134-132.

Still, Khobuntin downplayed his performance where he also collected four rebounds in nearly 34 minutes of play. The 6-foot-4 forward said that he simply took the shots when the opportunity presented itself.

“Wala, just take the open shot lang.

“Kasi tinatrabaho ko naman yun every day eh, so confident lang sa tira. ‘Pag open, tira. Yun lang naman eh. Kaysa naman ‘di mo ititira, baka mag-turnover pa,” said the four-year pro out of National University.

Columbian have now conquered San Miguel for the second straight time this season – the first was in the Philippine Cup back in January. For Khobuntin, the challenge of facing the Beermen brings the best in them.

“Take lang namin yung challenge every game lalong-lalo na San Miguel. Kung ano meron kami, binibigay lang namin.”

For Khobuntin, taking down one the league’s giants means plenty for a team that’s been struggling in the mid-season joust; prior to this, they won just once in seven outings before Sunday. So now, he hopes they could keep up this play.

“Siyempre ang sarap. Nakaka-boost ng morale kasi San Miguel, tapos kami, struggling yung team namin. Tapos isang malaking team pa yung nasungkit namin,” he said.

“So hopefully, next game ganun ulit yung lalaruin namin.”
