/ 04:11 PM January 23, 2018


Wangs Basketball-Letran gave a glimpse of what the future holds for the Knights in the NCAA as it easily dispatched AMA Online Education, 93-75, for its first win in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup Tuesday at Pasig Sports Center.

Bong Quinto led the balanced attack for the Couriers with 19 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists, while Bonbon Batiller got 15 markers, five boards, and three dimes.


JP Calvo added 12 points, eight rebounds, and two assists, Christian Fajarito tallied 11 markers and nine boards, and Alex Mandreza had 10 in the victory.

Wangs coach Jeff Napa couldn’t be happier with how his retooled team performed in its conference-opener.


“I’m happy with the results, but I have to say that there’s still a lot of things we could work on as a unit,” he said.

The Couriers slowly built a 12-point cushion, 38-26, in the second quarter before opening the floodgates and never looking back, leading by as much as 21 points numerous times in the fourth frame.

Michael Cañete held the fort for the Titans with 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Kris Porter chimed in 13 in the loss.
