JM Calma steps up in 2OT as Valencia City-Baste completes huge comeback against MetroPac-SBU

Valencia City, Bukidnon-San Sebastian crawled their way back from a 20-point deficit to score a thrilling 96-92 double-overtime win over Metropac-San Beda, Tuesday in the 2019 PBA D-League at JCSGO Gym in Cubao.

JM Calma scored the game-icing lay-up with 14.5 seconds to spare, catching a pass from Ken Villapando to give the Golden Harvest the four-point cushion they needed to escape with the tough victory.

“Everybody stepped up, kahit yung may mga maliliit na minutes. Credit sa whole team, not just sa mga veterans ko. They [were] all composed on the last part,” said coach Egay Macaraya, as his side fought back from an early 34-14 deficit.

Allyn Bulanadi led Valencia-SSCR with 32 points, eight rebounds, five assists, and five steals. Meanwhile, RK Ilagan shot five triples on his way to 31 points, six boards, five dimes, and four steals.

Calma also added 12 as the Golden Harvest locked up a playoff seat with their 6-1 record in the Foundation Group.

Ilagan tied the game up at 75 with 41 seconds remaining in regulation, completing the amazing fightback as both teams were unable to convert in the endgame.

He also gave Valencia-SSCR the 88-85 lead with a three at the 52.1 second mark of the first overtime. James Canlas then answered back with a three of his own in the last 17.2 to send the game to another extra period.

Clint Doliguez fired 21 points and five boards to lead Metropac-San Beda in the tough defeat, as they wasted a golden opportunity to lock up a twice-to-beat incentive.
