NBL: Taguig survives highly-physical OT tilt vs Bulacan, ties Munti at fifth


Taguig survived the pesky Bulacan DF in extra period, 97-90, in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go NBL Chairman’s Cup at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga, Saturday evening.

The Generals limited the Republicans to just three points in overtime, a free throw by Ryan Operio and a layup by Dominick Fajardo.

Dan Natividad alone outscored Bulacan in the final period as he got six points while Coco Tancioco and Richmond Gilbero had a two-point field goal each.

Trailing 84-87, Taguig’s LJ Mayo’s split at the charity stripe with 41.5 ticks left in the fourth frame tied the game before the squads exchanged misses.

With two seconds left in the fourth for Bulacan, Paolo Andres inbounded the ball in the paint but it was deflected to send the game to overtime, 87-87.

Fidel Castro, who did not return after suffering a cut at the 3:17 mark of the fourth, topscored for Taguig with 21 points.2021-Chooks-NBL-Bulacan-vs-Taguig-Lerry-Jhon-Mayo-Taguig-scaled NBL: Taguig survives highly-physical OT tilt vs Bulacan, ties Munti at fifth Basketball NBL News  - philippine sports news
