Iligan Archangels pull out of VisMin Cup with three games left

PAGADIAN, ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR — The Iligan Archangels have backed out of the 2021 Chooks-to- Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup, Thursday.

The league’s head of basketball operations Chelito Caro made the announcement in a meeting with team representatives via Zoom.

“Team Iligan already backed out from the Mindanao Leg. There was an internal problem and they decided to pull out,” read the minutes of the meeting noted by league COO Rocky Chan.

The Archangels have so far played five games, all resulting in losses, which slid them to the bottom of the standings at 0-5.

With Iligan’s sudden decision to pull out, though, it will forfeit all its remaining games to its opponents via default. Moreover, all eight teams remaining will advance to the playoffs which begins on July 29.

“‘Yung remaining games ng Iligan, considered as winner na ‘yung opponent,” said Caro.

Iligan City is owned by Mayor Celso Regencia and has Dane Lariosa as head coach.

Composing its roster are Joel Lee Yu, Wilson Baltazar, Lander Canon, Edcor Marata, John Rabe, Roldan Piñas, Kenneth Ardiente, Dave Tagolimot, Philip Reyes, Harold Suarez, Magic Marata, Johari Andor, and guest players Kyle Ordeniza, Algeroh Benitez, and Jericho Montecalvo.

The development has also changed the playoff picture with just five days left in the eliminations.

Gaining automatic victories are Pagadian, JPS Zamboanga City, and ALZA Alayon.

The Explorers ended their elimination round at 5-3, still at third place. They can still move with several games left in the schedule for other squads.
