McDavid-La Salle Araneta survive Jonathan Parreno’s 67-point game for first win

The McDavid-La Salle Araneta Stallions wasted Jonathan Parreño’s 67-point outing as they drubbed Alberei, 147-133, for their first win in the 2019 PBA D-League Second Conference, Thursday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Nigerian center Henry Iloka led the Stallions with 40 points, 17 rebounds, four assists and three blocks. The Stallions saw the second-highest scoring output in league history behind BRT Sumisip-St. Clare’s 161 points, set earlier in the game day against Black Mamba.

Jobert Medina tallied 26 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists, while ex-pro James Mangahas had 20 points and six assists.

Eduardo Doroteo also made 17 points, while Kennette Balbuena added 11 markers in the win that improved their card to 1-4.

“Finally naka-isa na kami,” said coach Michael Gonzales. “Credit sa mga bata, kasi sabi nga namin kaya kami sumali dito para mag-improve sila para sa darating sa NAASCU.”

McDavid-La Salle Araneta were quick to assert control of the match, establishing a wide 47-30 advantage after opening the second quarter with 10 unanswered points, punctuated by Mangahas’ lay-up.

Alberei would trim the lead to just five, 84-89, in the third, but it would be the closest the Kings could get. The Stallions then staged a 25-8 rally en route to a 114-92 edge with less than two minutes left in the quarter.

McDavid-La Salle Araneta led by as many as 23, 140-117, after Doroteo’s bucket with 4:15 left to play.

Still, Gonzales pointed out the need to work on the Stallions’ defense after Parreño tied the most points in the developmental league’s history. The previous record was set by Eloy Poligrates in Marinerong Pilipino’s 141-97 conquest of iWalk last August 26.

Parreño, who had played before in the PBA briefly for Kia, built that scoring feat behind 11 treys. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to save his side from elimination.

Paulino Rebollos had 17 points. Mark Tano and Julian Palattao had 11 markers each for Alberei (1-5).

The Scores:

McDavid-La Salle Araneta 147 – Iloka 40, Medina 26, Mangahas 20, Doroteo 17, Balbuena 11, Batungbakal 8, Correche 8, Aquino 6, Pena 6, Briones 5, Lorenzo 0, Esteban 0.

Quarterscores: 35-30, 71-58, 114-95, 147-133.
