BBH Team A gets Third place over BBH Team C, 80-73.
In the first game of the evening, BBH Team A shook off an early deficit to turn back Team C, 80-73, and grab 3rd place for the tournament.
Joel Go and James Lee Salahag once again led Team A with 26 points, 5 rebounds and 21 points, 6 rebounds respectively. Pastor Angelou Esto added 15 points as Team A put three players in double figure scoring. Overcoming an early deficit that had them down by 7 points in the first quarter, Team A clamped down on defense in the 3rd quarter to grab the lead that they would not relinquish. Each time Team C tried to make a run, Team A would respond enough to preserve their slim lead. When Team C started fouling to stop the clock, Team A shot enough of their free throws to go on to the win.
Louel Binahon put in 30 points for Team C, keeping his team in the game with his outside shooting and drives to the rim. Piniel Yambagon was his usual scoring and rebounding self as he tallied 15 points and 9 rebounds while anchoring the defense. Neil Buyan added 12 points for Team C as they kept the game close but were unable to pull out the win in the end.
