Wednesday, September 25, 2013
BACOLOD Tay Tung High School star Sam Josef Belangel has a monster game of 30 points, 11 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 steals but University of St. La Salle A took the Milo BEST passerelle title, 84-80 on Saturday at Po Hang gym.
Earlier, the younger Stingers upset St. John's Institute, 55-53 for the SBP plum for a double celebration.
The sophomore Belangel has 17 of 18-first quarter points of the Thunderbolts, two over the La Sallians.
Christian Marie Palacios surprised many with his 20 points in the second quarter carrying Tay Tung on his back with bombs from the arc and power drives as the Thunderbolts led 43-33 at the break.
Astro Vista, Tyrel Nifras, and Lance Jomalesa waxed hot in the third and USLS took the upperhand for an astonishing reversal, 63-53 entering the fourth and final canto.
Tay Tung tried to catch up but were woeful in the charity stripe and the Junior Stingers completed their plan for a twin win in Milo's twin tournament in Bacolod City.
