Jerick Nacpil tallies season-high, lifts Dumaguete to VisMin win column


ALCANTARA — The Dumaguete Warriors sunk the Tubigon Bohol Mariners, 88-73, to take their first win in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup, Friday night at the Civic Center here in Cebu.

Up by just seven, 62-55, at the start of the fourth, Regalado kicked things off with a triple to bring their lead to double figures. Minutes later, Mantilla scored on a floater and two straight midrange jumpers while Regalado sank two more triples to give Dumaguete a 79-62 lead with 6:21 to go in the ballgame.

Another three-pointer by Regalado—his fourth of the game—gave Dumaguete their largest lead of the match at 19, 82-63.

“China-challenge ko lang sarili ko kasi nung first half hindi ako makabutas. Kaya sabi ko sa sarili ko na papasok din to. Ayun nakabutas naman,” shared Regalado of his red-hot shooting in the payoff period.

“Kumpyansa andyan naman pero yung timing lang talaga himahanap ko,” he added.

Jerick Nacpil scored a tournament-high 27 points to lead the way for the Warriors, which improved to 1-2 (win-loss) for the season. He added six rebounds, two assists, a steal, and two blocks.

Jaybie Mantilla and James Regalado—both products of the University of San Jose-Recoletos—had 21 and 18 points, respectively. Mantilla, a former CESAFI MVP, laced his statline with six boards, three dimes, and two steals while Regalado had four rebounds and five assists.

“Sobrang saya (to get our first win). Gusto talaga namin manalo as a team kahit na underdog kami, we will never give up,” said Regalado.

Versatile wingman Joseph Marquez and big man Abubakar Dadjijul scored 23 points apiece for Bohol but it was not enough to keep the Mariners from suffering their fourth loss in a row.

Wade Cabizares contributed 12 while Pari Llagas battled foul trouble all game long and finished with just 10 points and six rebounds. Interestingly, Bohol got all of its points from just five players.
