Taguig stops La Union’s NBL rampage in stunner


Taguig used a late spurt to hand La Union its first defeat, 96-85, in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go NBL Chairman’s Cup at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Jayson Apolonio buried a triple at the 4:31 mark of the fourth quarter to pull the PAOwer ahead, 84-83.

But that would be the last time they’d make a field goal. A free throw by Billy Boado with 3:26 left on the clock would be their last point in the match.

On the other hand, Fidel Castro, Coco Tancioco, LJ Mayo, and Dan Natividad combined for 13 points to put Taguig at 5-2. They are level with Muntinlupa and Quezon for the fourth spot.

Mayo was hyper-efficient with 16 points on 8-of-9 shooting to go with 12 rebounds, four assists, and three steals. Meanwhile, Tancioco added 10 points.
