Kapatagan snaps Basilan’s 16-game winning streak in VisMin


PAGADIAN, ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR—Kapatagan handed Basilan BRT its first-ever loss in the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup, 77-71, Saturday at the Pagadian City Gymnasium here.

The Peace Riders entered the game with a 16-game winning streak in the country’s southern-based professional league. They had swept the first conference 13-0, and were riding a three-game winning streak to start the Mindanao Challenge.

But the Buffalos had to fend off the Peace Riders’ endgame spurt to take this one.

Trailing by nine midway through the fourth quarter, Basilan scored six straight points courtesy of Jorem Morada and Dennis Daa to chip within three, 70-73.

But Edrian Lao completed a reverse layup and drained two free throws to seal the deal. Then Kapatagan’s defense held on en route to an even 2-2 slate.

“Malaking boost ‘yung matalo ‘yung Basilan kasi madadala namin ‘yung kumpyansa sa remaining games namin,” said Kapatagan head coach Jaime Rivera.

Mark Daanoy led the Buffalos with 21 points, 15 in the second half. He also had nine rebounds, three steals, two assists, and a block.

KD Ariar added 13 points, six assists, and four rebounds. Lao finished with 12 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks.

Junjie Hallare paced Basilan with 16 points, but saw himself limited to two in the second half. He also had five rebounds, four assists, and two steals.

Daa and Morada connived for 33 points but needed 28 shots to do so.

The Peace Riders fell to 3-1.

Both squads will be back in action tomorrow. Kapatagan will face MisOr at 4:00 PM. Meanwhile, Basilan will meet Roxas at 6:30 PM.
