Pampanga relies on Serrano, Hernandez, Dyke, Yong, moves to verge of NBL Finals


Defending Chooks-to-Go NBL champion Pampanga needed to dig deep to outlast Taguig in game one of their best-of-three semifinals series, eking out a 108-102 victory, Saturday at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Down by as much as 17 points early in the second stanza, Serrano and Hernandez, along side Mark Dyke and Rhanzelle Yong, clawed their way back, eventually taking control of the game in the third canto.

Delta would lead by as much as 15 points, 102-87, after a bucket by Young off of a CJ Gania assist.

The Generals though had one last fight in them, cutting the lead down to three, 103-100, after a Richmond Gilbero triple and an LJ Mayo jumper with 1:02 left.

Hernandez and Serrano proved steady on the stripe while Dyke nailed a clutch putback late to seal the win.2021-Chooks-NBL-Taguig-vs-Pampanga-Levi-Hernandez-Pampanga-scaled Pampanga relies on Serrano, Hernandez, Dyke, Yong, moves to verge of NBL Finals Basketball NBL News  - philippine sports news
