PBA D-League: Concepcion, Cabanero link up as UST upsets Marinerong Pilipino

Builders Warehouse-UST continues to turn the tide in the 2022 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup, shocking Marinerong Pilipino with an 88-80 triumph to keep its playoff hopes alive, Thursday at Ynares Arena in Pasig.

Fresh from his triple-double performance a day prior, Sherwin Concepcion got 18 points built from four treys, to go with 10 rebounds.

Nic Cabanero also dropped 18 points on 3-of-5 shooting from deep with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two blocks as the Growling Tigers completed the sweep of their back-to-back assignments and rose to a 2-4 record.

“I’m so happy sa mga players natin kasi nagre-respond sila. Ineembrace na nila yung sistema na binibigay,” said interim UST head coach Albert Alocillo. “Gusto lang talaga naming manalo.”

UST weathered a Marinerong Pilipino fightback as the latter climbed from a 12-point deficit, cutting the lead to 59-56.

Cabanero and Concepcion though came up big in the crunch to seal the win.

Bryan Santos pumped 16 points from four treys off the bench, as Kean Baclaan had 15 for the Growling Tigers.

Marinerong Pilipino squandered its chance of claiming a top two seat which comes with an outright semifinals berth as it dropped to 4-2.

Juan Gomez de Liano paced the Skippers with 18 points, five rebounds, and two assists, while Arvin Gamboa tallied 18 points, nine boards, and five dimes.

The Scores:

Builders Warehouse-UST 88 — Concepcion 18, Cabanero 18, Santos 16, Baclaan 15, Manalang 10, Mantua 4, Manaytay 4, Pangilinan 2, Stevens 1, Wilson 0.
