PSL: Bagong Cabuyao, 1Munti score debut wins

Nano Alvarado and Justine Disquitado combined in the endgame to carry debuting Bagong Cabuyao Homelab Nation to a 72-71 Houdini over Nueva Ecija on Monday night in the Pilipinas Super League Pro Division Second Conference Dumper Cup at the Central Recreational Facility in New Era, Quezon City.

An Alvarado layup shattered the game’s final deadlock 71-69 with 28 seconds to go before Disquitado hit a free throw that made it 72-69 20 seconds later.

The Slashers’ Daniel De Guzman scored on a putback off a Jerick Nacpil missed three-point try at the buzzer but that proved to be not enough as Nueva Ecija failed to notch a follow-up to a 79-72 win over Cagayan de Oro-PSP last Thursday and fell to 2-3.

Paolo Pontejos sparkled with 19 points, on top of three rebounds and four assists for Cabuyao, while Joel Jolangcob chipped in 10 markers, three boards, and two dimes.

Sancho Vitug also had 10 points and 10 caroms to gift Cabuyao coach and PBA great Jerry Codiñera a big opening game triumph in the tourney presented by Dumper party-list, Winzir, SCD Cosmetics, and Converge and supported by Wcube Solutions Inc., MDC, Unisol, Don Benitos, and Finn Cotton.

In the other game, 1Munti tripped Quezon City 81-73 in a battle of debuting squads.
