Quezon escapes Laguna to take second win in NBL

Quezon squeaked past Laguna, 89-85, in the Chooks-to-Go NBL Chairman’s Cup 2021, Saturday at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center.

Tied at 79 late in the game, the Barons went on a 9-0 scoring blitz, capped by a left-wing triple by Topeng Lagrama, 88-79, with 2:10 to go.

But Alex Junsay, Kevin Martin, and Aries Santos connived to score six unanswered points for Laguna and bring the deficit to just three, 85-88, with 15.7 ticks remaining.

Lagrama, though, split his charities to add on an insurance point for Quezon, then the Pistons failed to convert on the other end.
