Big Chill routs Gems to forge decider in PBA-D League semis


MANILA, Philippines—Hanging by a thread, Big Chill responded with an emphatic 111-70 drubbing of Cebuana Lhuillier Tuesday to forge a do-or-die game in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup best-of-three semifinals series at the San Juan Gym.

The Superchargers ran away from an early tie and gained steam as the game went on.

Mac Montilla nailed a triple just before the end of the first period that capped a 21-6 blitz and put Big Chill ahead 31-16.

The Gems never had a chance as the Superchargers widened the gap even more thanks to their solid plays on both ends.

A Mar Villahermosa trey buried Cebuana to a 45-point hellhole, 100-55, at the 6:23 mark of the fourth period.

Alex Mallari bounced back from his poor Game 1 outing as he led the onslaught with 20 points while Elliot Tan and Montilla added 14 and 13 points respectively.
