Iligan busts skid as Basilan suffers fourth straight loss in VisMin

PAGADIAN, ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR — Iligan arrested its four-game funk at the expense of the skidding Basilan BRT, 72-65, in the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup Mindanao Challenge, Tuesday at the Pagadian City Gymnasium here.

Down by as much as 12, a three-pointer by Med Salim brought the Peace Riders to within one, 60-61, with 8:10 remaining in the game.

But Archangels Jack Hoyohoy and Kris Daguisonan combined for six straight points which were answered by five quick points by Kim Sallidin and Jorem Morada to keep within striking distance, 65-67, with 2:14 left.

However, that would be the last time Basilan would see the ball fall in its basket as Hoyohoy and Lester Tamayo put the finishing touches for Iligan

“These past few days my players are really down pero minotivate ko sila,” said Archangels head coach Kiko Flores. “I give all the credit to these young kids.”

Hoyohoy led Iligan with a monster double-double of 24 points and 13 rebounds.

Herald Benedictos added 14 points, including four triples, and seven rebounds for the victors.

The Archangels upped their win-loss record to 2-5 but still stayed at the bottom while sending the Peace Riders to their fourth-straight defeat, dropping to 3-4.

Nikko Panganiban was the lone bright spot for the Peace Riders with 18 points, all from deep, to go with seven rebounds.

Morada and Tristan Albina finished with eight points apiece but both shot just 3-of-11 from the field.

Iligan will clash with MisOr on Thursday at 6:30 pm. Meanwhile, Basilan gets two days off before playing the Valientes as well on Friday.
