PBA D-League: Sabellina leads Boracay Rum win over EA Regen


MANILA, Philippines—Boracay Rum leaned on a huge fourth quarter run to come back and defeat newcomer EA Regen, 85-75, Monday in the 2013 PBA D-League Foundation Cup at the San Juan Arena.

The Waves struggled for three quarters before turning the game around by scoring 30 points in the fourth quarter, behind Maclean Sabellina’s game-high 22 points.

Sabellina, who scored 10 in the payoff period teamed-up with Roider Cabrera and Lucas Tagarda during a 10-0 run as Boracay Rum turned a three point deficit into a 70-63 lead.

“To be realistic about it, bagong team palang sila. Lamang sila sa manpower, lamang kami sa cohesion,” head coach Lawrence Chongson told reporters.

The Waves were trailing the Delta by double digits in the first half but just two, 61-63, early in the fourth quarter. A triple from Cabrera gave them the lead for good with 63-64 left.

Paolo Taha added 21 points including five in the final two minutes off the game that put Boracay Rum in a safe distance.

Boracay Rum improved to 2-2 while EA Regen dropped its first assignment in the league.

Jimbo Aquino scored 20 while Jeckster Apinan added 17, including 11 in the first quarter to help EA Regen Med take a 26-12 lead.
