PSL: Baltazar remains out as Pampanga Lanterns cruise to second win

The Pampanga G Lanterns overwhelmed Quezon City 83-59 Thursday night for its second straight win in the Manila Bankers Life-Pilipinas Super League Pro Division Second Conference Dumper Cup at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Arvie Bringas dazzled with 11 points, on top of three rebounds, and an assist for the Lanterns, while Jayson Apolonio and Dominic Vera also had 10 markers each.

Justine Baltazar did not suit up once more as he is still in negotiations with a Korean Basketball League club.

In the other game, Cagayan de Oro-PSP turned back 1Munti 76-71 for its breakthrough triumph.

Dariel Bayla led Cagayan de Oro with a double-double of 19 points and 11 boards, while Jeff Comia chipped in 14 markers, 11 caroms, and eight dimes.

Jopet Soriano also had 12 and eight as Cagayan de Oro cut short its four-game losing streak, counting an 86-96 setback at the hands of Batang Kankaloo-Caloocan last Dec. 19 and improved to 1-4.

The Emeralds absorbed their third defeat in a row, including a 62-79 loss to Boracay last week for a 1-3 slate.
