NBL: Enguio, Mendoza fill statsheet, power Muntinlupa past Taguig

Muntinlupa got out of an early funk, drubbing Taguig, 76-67, in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go NBL Chairman’s Cup at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga, Sunday.

The Generals raced to an early 18-5 advantage, but that would be the last they’d see the game in their favor.

After closing in at the end of the first period, the Water Warriors put their foot on the pedal. They eventually took a 42-33 lead at halftime.

Muntinlupa followed it up with another solid quarter. It limited Taguig to just 13 points while converting 21 to erect a 17-point lead, 63-46.

Biboy Enguio stuffed the stat sheet for the Water Warriors with 23 points, 11 rebounds, six steals, and two blocks.
