Pasig Chooks ran roughshod over India’s Panaji 3BL, taking a dominant 21-9 (6:05) win to advance to the quarterfinals of the 2019 Kaohsiung Challenger, Saturday evening.
After absorbing a crushing 12-21 defeat at the hands of world no. 10 Edmonton to open their Pool C campaign, Nikola Pavlovic and the rest of Pasig vented their ire on the Indians.
Every member of Pasig contributed in their blistering 12-4 run to start the game.
Panaji could not muster a comeback as Pasig heated up from downtown. Dylan Ababou, Joshua Munzon, and Pavlovic all found their strokes. A Pavlovic deuce with 3:55 left kept Pasig’s hopes alive of punching a ticket to the Nanjing Masters.
Serbian import Pavlovic had 10 points spiked by three deuces. Meanwhile, Munzon and Ababou added five and four markers, respectively. Troy Rike had two points as well.
Panaji only played with three players with Arshdeep Singh leading the way with four points.
With the win, Pasig booked a date with world no. 4 NY Harlem of USA in the quarters of this level-nine FIBA 3X3 tourney. The bout takes place at 2:00 pm on Sunday.
Pasig 21 – Pavlovic 10, Munzon 5, Ababou 4, Rike 2.
Panaji 9 – Singh 4, Renthlei 3, Sharma 2.
