Cignal HD pounced on AMA Online Education with a wire-to-wire 86-76 victory Tuesday in the 2017 PBA D-League Foundation Cup at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Davon Potts led the way for the Hawkeyes as he fired 17 points and three rebounds, while Pamboy Raymundo unfurled 16 markers and two assists.


Raymar Jose just missed out on a double-double with his 12 points and nine boards in the win.


Coach Boyet Fernandez was glad with how Cignal responded from its shock loss to Marinerong Pilipino, 66-65 last Thursday, noting that at the team knows how important the games are especially with the loaded schedule they have in the first three weeks of the tourney.

“We’re just a little tired, but the boys really wanted to get back on the winning track,” he said. “We know that we have to build up wins so that we’ll have a little bit of a buffer.”

Potts got things going in the first quarter as he strung eight points to allow the Hawkeyes to take a 22-16 lead before they pulled away in the ensuing frames and grab a lead as high as 25, 64-39, with a Simon Atkins fastbreak with 1:25 left in the third period.

Paolo Pontejos got himself going for AMA (0-2) with 24 points, three rebounds, and three assists, while Mario Bonleon went for 13 markers on a dismal 5-of-20 sniping, to go with eight boards in the defeat.
