PBA D-League: 4th quarter barrage lifts Go for Gold past AMA Education
MANILA, Philippines—Go for Gold-College of St. Benilde shrugged off a slow start and saved its best for last, blasting AMA Online Education, 109-91, for its fourth straight win in the 2019 PBA D-League Tuesday at JCSGO Gym in Cubao.
The Scratchers put up a 32-point fourth quarter to turn a close game into a rout and climbed to fourth place in the Aspirants Group with a 5-3 record.
“I think we just got off to a bad start. Medyo slow start kami, but we picked it up and we’re playing much better,” said Go for Gold-CSB coach Charles Tiu.
Roosevelt Adams had an all-around game, collecting 21 points, 17 rebounds and five assists while Robi Nayve added 19 points and five rebounds for the Scratchers.
They were up by just nine, 77-68, at the end of the third quarter before turning up the jets in the final frame.
The Titans (2-4) lost a crucial game despite Joshua Munzon and Franky Johnson’s big numbers as they are now on the verge of missing the playoffs.
Munzon finished with 30 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, and three steals, while Franky Johnson scattered 26 points, six steals, and four assists.
