PSL: Calisaan-led San Juan silences Davao, goes 10-0

Call it a perfect 10 for San Juan.

Rence Nocum and prized forward Michael Calisaan showed the way as the Kings frustrated home team and defending champion Davao Occidental-Cocolife with a 76-71 decision last Thursday night in the Manila Bankers Life-Pilipinas Super League Pro Division Second Conference Dumper Cup on tour at RMC Gymnasium in Davao City.

Nocum finished with 20 points and eight rebounds for San Juan, while Calisaan flirted with a double-double of 18 points and nine rebounds.

The win allowed the charges of coach Randy Alcantara to remain unbeaten with a 10-0 mark, including a 93-89 triumph over Manila last week.

The Tigers, coming off an 87-66 dumping of 1Munti last Feb. 1, fell to 9-2.

In the other game, Koponang Lakan ng Bulacan clobbered the Pampanga G Lanterns 85-68 for its fifth straight win.

Former PBA player Leo Najorda shone anew for Bulacan with 21 points, five boards, and four assists, while Mark Pangilinan chipped in 20 markers and two rebounds.

Exequil Biteng also had 12 and five for Bulacan, which scored a fitting follow-up to a 72-61 victory over Batang Kankaloo-Caloocan last Feb. 2 and rose to 8-3.

The G Lanterns failed to do an encore to an 87-76 trouncing of Cagayan De Oro-PSP last Monday and dropped to 6-4.

Keith Agovida and Micole Sorela scored 11 points each for Davao Occidental.

Archie Concepcion paced Pampanga with 20 points and four caroms, while Louie Sangalang and Michael Garcia got 11 and 10, respectively.
