PH seniors sweep group in Asean hoops
HAT YAI, Thailand—Johnny Chua, Sonny Co, and Conrad Siy delivered key baskets down the stretch as 65s of the Filipino-Chinese Veterans Basketball Association (FCVBA) downed Miri, Malaysia, 42-37, to sweep their group in the 27th Asean Basketball Veterans Tournament Wednesday at Prince Songkla University gym here.
After struggling in the first three quarters, Co found the right time to redeem himself as he buried a huge three-point shot to tie count at 37-all then Chua split his pressure-packed charities before Siy hit a putback for a 40-37 lead.
Chua, who finished with 13 points, finally sealed the deal with a basket down low with barely 12 ticks left.
“It was a tough win,” said Terry Que of Rain or Shine, who bankrolled FCVBA’s participation in the annual tournament along with Freego’s Eduard Tio and Ironcon Builders boss Jimi Lim.
