PSL: Gemao-less Farm Fresh-Letran romps Doc Boleros, seals 18U NCR top seed


FARM FRESH-Letran clinched the top seed for the 2023 Manila Bankers Life-Pilipinas Super League 18-Under NCR Leg Final Four after defeating EZ Jersey-Doc Boleros, 92-68, last Monday at La Consolacion College Gymnasium.

The Milkers finished the elimination round with an 8-1 record, with their only loss against Fin & Claw Grill on June 21 (83-88).

Meanwhile, Fin & Claw secured the second seed over Doc Boleros, despite both teams having identical 7-2 records, due to their 84-80 victory on June 27.

Letran will hold a twice-to-beat advantage in the semifinals against Taytay, which starts on July 5.

Despite the absence of NCAA Season 98 Finals MVP Andy Gemao, who is with University of the Philippines in Serbia, Farm Fresh-Letran’s depth proved to be effective.

Jovel Baliling and Daniel Padilla led the way for the Milkers with 14 points each, while Syrex Silorio added 13 markers.

Jonathan Manalili contributed 11 points, five rebounds, and three assists to hold the team together.

Markkian Danag paced the EZ Jersey-backed squad with 14 points.

Luid also failed to appear for their scheduled game against Quezon on July 1.

Pampanga and Datzluv-Sta. Cruz (6-2) will have the playoff incentive in the Final Four as they face LDG San Pedro (4-4) and Quezon (6-2) on July 5.
