Villarias lifts Bataan over Bulacan
Former pro Toto Villarias spearheaded a balanced attack as Bataan overpowered Bulacan, 63-49, late Tuesday for its 10th straight victory in the MPBL Datu Cup at Bataan Peoples Center in Balanga City.
The former NLEX guard finished with 13 points that went with 10 rebounds and three steals as the Risers extended the league’s longest winning streak to improve to 10-1.
The Kuyas unveiled former San Beda star Ogie Menor for the first time this season, but he could do little to prevent Bulacan from suffering its fourth loss in 12 games.
In the first game, Parañaque overcame Rizal, 59-47, for its seventh win in 13 games for solo fourth in the South division.
Stepping up for the struggling Harold Arboleda, Mac Montilla had 11 points, five assists and five rebounds for the Patriots.
The Crusaders fell to a 4-12 record.
