Mikey Williams steers GenSan Warriors to last MPBL South playoff spot


GenSan-Burlington finally clinched the last playoff berth in the South after devouring lowly Sarangani, 104-87, in the 2019-20 Chooks-to-Go MPBL Lakan Season, Monday at the San Andres Sports Complex in Manila. 

The Warriors arrested their four-game slide and improved to 17-12, good for the seventh spot in the Southern division.

“We all continue to learn from all those mistakes. We don’t have a veteran team, maybe one or two guys only. We have to be mentally prepared,” said GenSan coach Rich Alvarez.

Pamboy Raymundo led the Warriors with 22 points built on four triples, to go with seven assists. Mikey Williams added 18 markers, seven dimes, and five rebounds.

Veteran Robby Celiz also contributed 16 points, nine boards, and five rebounds, while Delmar Mahaling had 11 points in 11 minutes.

Already leading by nine, GenSan uncorked 29 points in the third quarter, while limiting its foes to just 20. They then erected an 18-point cushion entering the payoff period, 78-60.

Meylan Landicho’s three-pointer at the 7:38 mark of the fourth stanza gave the Warriors their biggest lead of the game at 24, 86-62.

On the other hand, Orin Catacutan and Pari Llagas registered 17 points apiece.

Sarangani ended its campaign with a 1-29 slate.


The Scores:

GenSan-Burlington 104 – Raymundo 22, Williams 18, Celiz 16, Mahaling 11, Masaglang 8, Landicho 8, Cabanag 8, Goloran 6, Orbeta 3, Baltazar 3, Cinco 2, Bautista 0, Radin 0, Carlos 0, Grospe 0.
