Rolling to their eight straight victories, Isaac cruised to a 115-98 win Wednesday evening at the Easter College gym to close out the eliminations round undefeated.
"Everything was just in the right timing, lahat ng games na nilaro namin sa season with this team talagang maganda ang ipinakita ng mga players," said coach Sherwin Galgala.
"Masasabi natin na sinuwerete lang din kami sa bawat game, pero with the performance and chemistry na ginagawa ng team sa bawat laro we can say magaling lang talaga sila," Galgala added.
Isaac came neck to neck against Minero at the close of the first quarter, 27-24, but pulled away in the second period as Dave Sumadchat, Michael Hermosado, and Jonas Gacula dropped a 26 huge points for 66-43 advantage.
Minero however came back strong in the third period to trim the deficit at 71-54 bankrolled by Mark Lester Viray and Nelson Turtoga with 6:40 remaining but Isaac returned the favor to finish the third period with a 90-68 lead.
Jonathan Collado and Vonn Carlo Padilla then took over in the pay off period for Isaac by dousing cold water on the miners’ defense.
"Talagang maganda lang ang rotation sa bola, although na-sweep namin ang eliminations ibang level ulit sa semis kaya dalhin lang ang momentum ng game," said Padilla who scored a game high 27 points, with five steals, four rebounds and one assist.
