Roosevelt Adams, Go for Gold-CSB weather AMA trio to rise to 4th


The Go for Gold-CSB Scratchers sustained their late run to the 2019 PBA D-League playoffs with their fourth straight win, clobbering the AMA Online Education Titans, 109-91, Tuesday at JCSGO Gym in Cubao.

Roosevelt Adams anchored the Scratchers with 21 points, 17 rebounds, and five assists. Meanwhile, Robi Nayve chipped in 19 points and five rebounds.

Carlo Young also contributed 13 points, while Jimboy Pasturan had 12.

The Scratchers now rise to fourth place in the Aspirants Group at 5-3.
