Davao Occ, San Juan gain

Unheralded big man Bogs Raymundo hit clutch baskets as Davao Occidental sustained its fiery run, while San Juan got back on track on Saturday in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) Datu Cup at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Raymundo made five of his 11 points in the closing stages as the Tigers turned back the Navotas Clutch, 72-59, for their eight straight win and a 10-3 record, enough to reclaim top spot in the South division ahead of Muntinlupa.

Larry Muyang atoned for his disappointing debut with a double-double as San Juan overcame hard-fighting Cebu, 71-62, in the second game.


Fresh off a stint with Letran in the NCAA, Muyang finally showed what he’s capable of with 12 points and 12 rebounds, while Aaron Jeruta scattered 15 points, including nine in an 11-0 blitz to close the first half.


Mike Ayonayon also knocked down crucial baskets late for the Knights, who bounced back from their stunning 78-85 loss to Batangas to improve their record to 11-3 for third spot in the North division.

The Sharks saw their four-game winning run snapped even after drawing a career-best 25 points from big man Will McCaloney.
