NBL: Ronald Pascual makes successful return as Pampanga deals Stan D4 67-point rout

Ronald Pascual had a successful return to basketball, helping Pampanga destroy Stan District 4 by 67, 136-69, Saturday in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go NBL Chairman’s Cup at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Pascual, who last played in the PBA in 2018 and has since gone on a downward spiral, made his debut for the Delta, proving the marksman in him is still there.

The 1/3 of the Pinatubo Trip produced 15 points, all from behind the arc, alongside two rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes of play.

Leading by just eight, the Delta turned on their jets in the second period, making 34 points while putting the clamps on the SparTANs, holding them to just eight points, to enter halftime up by 34, 61-27.

The defending champions widened the lead, even more, come the third frame, outscoring Quezon 36-14, going into the fourth up by an insurmountable 56 points, 97-41.2021-Chooks-NBL-Pampanga-vs-Stan-D4-Michael-Jeffrey-Garcia-Pampanga-scaled NBL: Ronald Pascual makes successful return as Pampanga deals Stan D4 67-point rout Basketball NBL News  - philippine sports news
