Camicosi, CVL start finals series tonight-A A +A
Tuesday, August 5, 2014
TOP-SEEDED Camicosi and the resurgent CVL dispute the title of the 2014 Cagayan de Oro Mason Inter-Lodge basketball starting tonight at Camp Evangelista gym in Barangay Patag.
The battle for third place between 7 CVL and Makahambus at 6 pm is also a best-of-3 series.
Both Camicosi and CVL completed a thrilling comeback from opening round debacle in semifinals by turning down the Game 3 challenge of 7 CVL, 69-60 and Macahambus, 67-62.
Relegated in the scoring shadow of Fiscal Alfonso Vicente in their previous games, the unpredictable Palmer Palamine had his star shone in the deciding match with 7 CVL by producing 26 points.
“The 7 CVL’s big three were also hot on fire, but their efforts apparently went for naught in the face of Palamine’s explosive performance,” said the tourney’s technical supervisor Danilo Jaminal referring to Cass Navales, Fiscal Ravidas and Ian Ang who finished with 17, 15 and 12 points each.
The Macahambus foursome of Michael Chan, Mark Chan, Go and Tan Lee all scored in twin-digit numbers. But four players in Camicosi jerseys (Jonathan Pacuribot, R. Pacuribot, James Abucejo and Jan Babiera) also did the same to lift Camicosi to the finals.
Also officiating the travelers basketball are Jaminal’s sidekicks Renato Dy, Melvin Jadap and Rex Naguit. (LLS)
