PBA D-League: James Una shines as San Sebastian drubs AMA with 40-point rout


Apex Fuel-San Sebastian College crushed winless AMA Online by 40, scoring a wire-to-wire 93-53 victory in the 2022 PBA D-League Aspirants Cup, Tuesday at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

The Golden Stags did not need much time to pull away, zooming to a 32-13 first period and never looking back.

“Ang gusto ko lang naman sa mga bata kahit sino ‘yung kalaban we will be doing always the right thing and the boys played good defense all the way.” said San Sebastian head coach Egay Macaraya. “‘Yun ang character saka mentalidad na gusto kong ipasok sa mga bata dahil mga bago ito lahat.”

Balanced was the offensive attack for the Stags who fielded all 15 players with 12 getting in the scoring party.

James Una, who was a game-high plus-27 in his 21 minutes, led San Sebastian with 12 points, five rebounds, three steals, and two blocks.

Vince Suico and Rafael Are chimed in 11 points each off the bench, while Romel Calahat got 10 to go with eight rebounds and three steals.

The 2-1 Stags will target three in a row on Thursday against EcoOil-De La Salle University at 12:30 pm at the Big Dome.

On the other hand, Nemesis Dela Cruz was the lone King in double figures with 10 points on 2-of-9 shooting.

The 0-4 AMA will next face the loaded Marinerong Pilipino on July 26, Tuesday, 11 am, at the same Pasig arena.

The Scores:

Apex Fuel-San Sebastian 93 – Una 12, Are 11, Suico 11, Calahat 10, Altamirano 10, Felebrico 9, Yambing 8, Villapando 7, Paglinawan 5, Sumoda 4, Shanoda 3, Escobido 3, Desoyo 0, Ventura 0, Gabat 0.
