Chadao-FEU rode on L-Jay Gonzales’ hot streak to score the 71-63 conquest over Wangs Basketball, Tuesday in the 2019 PBA D-League at JCSGO Gym in Cubao.

The sophomore guard continued his sensational run in the developmental ranks with his 20 points, eight rebounds, and four assists.

“Yung improvement ng team namin, nagmumula kay L-Jay,” said coach Olsen Racela as he praised his point guard’s growth.

Gonzales helped the Tamaraws hold off a feisty comeback from the Couriers, turning a 59-56 affair to a commanding 68-60 lead in the final 38.6 seconds.

Branrey Bienes also chipped in 13 points and three boards, while Joseph Nunag got 10 points and three rebounds for the Tamaraws, who rose to solo fourth place in the Foundation Group at 4-3.
