PSL: Wamar catches fire as San Juan downs 1Munti to go 5-0

Boosted by the hot hands of guard Orlan Wamar, San Juan added to the woes of 1Munti, pulling off an 80-71 victory last Monday night to remain unbeaten in five starts in the Manila Bankers Life-Pilipinas Super League Pro Division Second Conference Dumper Cup at the Central Recreational Facility in New Era, Quezon City.

Wamar sizzled with 15 points – all from deep – on top of two rebounds and four assists for the Kings. Meanwhile, Nikko Panganiban provided ample help with 14 markers, seven boards, and three dimes.

Marwin Taywan and Rence Nocum had 10 points each for San Juan, which rose to 5-0 for solo third in the tourney presented by Winzir and co-presented by SCD Cosmetics and Dumper party-list, 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.

The Kings were propped up by a 103-100 decision over Bicol last week.

The Emeralds absorbed their sixth straight loss, counting a 72-84 defeat to Sta. Rosa Laguna also last week, for a 1-6 slate.

In the other game, the Lions edged the Spicy Oragons 69-66 for their fourth win in a row.

Enzo Joson uncorked 13 points, grabbed five caroms, and issued two feeds for Sta. Rosa, while Nat Cosejo added 12 and nine.

Jeramer Cabanag also had 10 markers and six rebounds as the charges of coach Britt Reroma raised their mark to 6-1 for fourth.

Bicol fell to its fourth straight setback for a 2-5 record.
