Unbeaten Scorpions keep White Stallions winless
Undefeated Centro Escolar University hardly broke a sweat in a 93-69 beatdown of CD14 Designs-Trinity University of Asia in the 2019 PBA D-League Monday at JCSGO Gym in Cubao.
The Scorpions got off to a fast start as they took a 45-17 lead in the second quarter behind Malick Diouf.
CEU head coach Derrick Pumaren said he was concerned that his squad might become complacent knowing it’s up against a winless team.
“I was worried about my team because (CD14 Designs-Trinity was) winless and my team might just take them for granted,” said Pumaren.
But his worries were nonexistent right from the opening tip as the Scorpions opened the game outscoring their foes, 31-15 in the first period.
Jan Formento came off the bench and scored 17 points on 6-of-8 field goal shooting while Judel Fuentes and Pierce Chan added 13 apiece for CEU, which rolled to 5-0.
John Tayongtong and Gab Reyes had 11 points each for the White Stallions, who dropped to 0-4.
