Jack Hayohoy drops 30 as Iligan scrapes part Pagadian in VisMin

PAGADIAN, ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR — Iligan banked on the scorching hands of Jack Hoyohoy to survive Pagadian, 92-90, in the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup 2nd conference at the Pagadian City Gymnasium here, Sunday.

Hoyohoy erupted for 30 points on 10-of-17 shooting, including 11 in the payoff period, to go with nine rebounds to negate his seven turnovers.

And the product of Our Lady of Fatima University, who is serving as one of the Luzon-based players for the Archangels, stepped up late.

Up by just a point with less than three minutes left in the game, Hoyohoy connected on five straight points on two free throws and a triple to stretch the Archangels lead to six, 88-82, with 1:14 left.

In the ensuing play, Edzel Mag-isa converted a bucket for the Explorers but Lugie Cuyos retaliated with a trey on the other end, 91-84.

But Jezhreel Acaylar and Judel Fuentes nailed back-to-back threes to pump life to Pagadian’s life, 90-91, with just 3.5 ticks left.

Then they sent Cuyos to the free-throw line. He calmly sank the first but missed on the second. However, the Explorers failed to take a shot as time expired.

I really give credit to the boys,” said Archangels head coach Kiko Flores. “They’ve been working on this every day. Actually last night they did cry noong natalo kami sa Basilan by breaks of the game.”

Cuyos added 18 points and seven rebounds for Iligan while Arche Salo chipped in 10 points.

Iligan forged a tie with Pagadian with identical 1-1 records.
