QC’s Aaron Black, Gen San’s Mikey Williams shine despite Navotas-Rizal game halted

The home crowd of the Navotas Clutch were sent home early Tuesday evening as the venue was deemed unplayable due to the humidity inside.

During the halftime and with Navotas up 56-39 over the Rizal Crusaders, the game was halted.

According to MPBL commissioner Kenneth Duremdes, the game will resume at the end of the season if the game will still have a bearing.

“The game will be resumed at the end of the elims and will be played if ever there’s a bearing for any of the two teams,” said Duremdes.

Kojack Melegrito led all scorers with 11 points.

Despite this, two stars from the first two games made sure to thrill the Navotas crowd.

In the second game, Aaron Black tallied the league’s ninth triple-double ever during the Quezon City Capitals’ 110-89 over the Binan City Laguna Heroes.

The Ateneo product tallied 17 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists as he combined with Clark Derige, Tonino Gonzaga and Ramon Mabayo to a lead that went to as high 29 points.

Derige, a former University of the East Red Warrior, fired a game-high 24 points while Gonzago and Mabayo matched Black’s 17 points in QC’s bounce back win.

Mark Acosta and Marlon Adolfo provided the bright spot for the hapless Heroes finishing with 18 points and 12 points and 14 rebounds, respectively.

In the first game, Mikey Williams powered the Gen San Warriors past the Marikina Shoemasters, 96-89.

Getting used to physical plays, Williams scored 26 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, while Pamboy Raymundo, formerly of the Bataan Risers, chipped in 21 points, including 13 in the fourth quarter, as the Warriors cruised to their second straight win.
