Pampanga Royce Hotel whipped Sta. Rosa Laguna 85-61 last Saturday night to stretch its winning run to five and solidified its hold on second 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.

Heady playmaker Renzo Navarro shone anew for Pampanga Royce with a game-high 19 points, to go with six rebounds and five assists, while Joshua Flores added 13 and two.

Allen Liwag and JB Bahio also had 12 and 11 points, respectively as Pampanga Royce scored a big follow-up to a 79-62 ripping of Cagayan de Oro-PSP last Wednesday and rose to 11-1 in the tilt presented by Dumper party-list, Winzir, and Skin Care Depot, co-presented by SCD Cosmetics, and supported by NET 25, Adcon, Wcube Solutions Inc., MDC, Unisol, Don Benitos, and Finn Cotton, with PBA and Gilas Pilipinas great Marc Pingris serving as Commissioner.
