Showing no signs of slowing down, Zark’s Burger-Lyceum waylaid AMA Online Education, 109-85, Thursday in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Cameroonian big man Mike Nzeusseu led the balanced attack for the Jawbreakers with 17 points, including a rim-rattling dunk over Andre Paras with 2:44 remaining to punctuate the victory, along with 10 rebounds, and two blocks.

CJ Perez was also one of the seven players who notched double figures in scoring with 15 markers, 14 boards, and five dimes.

Wilson Baltazar pumped three treys to wound up with 13 points, Jaycee Marcelino, MJ Ayaay, and Ralph Tansingco all logged 12 points, and Jayvee Marcelino got 11 in the comfortable victory for Zark’s Burger-Lyceum.

FEATURED STORIES

After gaining back-to-back wins after losing their conference-opener, Jawbreakers coach Topex Robinson praised his wards for sustaining their frenetic pace.

“Again, we want to keep on sustaining the energy. We want to change the way the D-League will be played,” he said. “They have to keep up to us rather than us keeping up with the rest of the D-League.”

The win also allowed Zark’s to surpass its paltry showing in the 2017 Foundation Cup, where it finished 1-9.

The Jawbreakers ran to a 15-6 opening salvo and kept their foot on the pedal en route to a 27-point advantage, 109-82, late in the game.

Genmar Bragais held the fort for the winless Titans (0-2) with a game-high 29 points and nine rebounds, while Michael Cañete got 22 markers and seven boards.

ZARK’S BURGER-LYCEUM 109 — Nzeusseu 17, Perez 15, Baltazar 13, Ayaay 12, Jc. Marcelino 12, Tansingco 12, Jv. Marcelino 11, Serrano 5, Cinco 4, Ibañez 4, Marata 4, Liwag 0, Santos 0.
