Wednesday, September 19, 2012
GOLDBERRY Suites is one game away from returning to the finals after scoring an emphatic 63-50 win over Insular Square in the semifinal round of the 17th Sacred Heart-Ateneo Alumni Basketball Athletic Association (Shaabaa) tournament last Sunday at the Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu Canduman Campus.
Perennial MVP awardee Dave Lim used his vast experience as he led Goldberry Suites to a rousing 16-6 start and the rest of the team joined in to log a 34-12 lead at the halftime break.
Insular Square tried to make their moves in the final half by using quickness and trapping defense but Lim’s imposing presence mattered as he scored all of Goldberry’s 11 points in the third. The multi-titled team regained poise in the final period to score the series opener win.
Lim scored the game high 22 points, Giovanni Borromeo added 12 and Paulsen Uy contributed 10 for Goldberry while Franz Cimafranca topscored for Insular Square with 14 points and Joseph Shan added with 11.
In the other semifinal game, the Cebu Landmasters went strong in the final two quarters to gain a headstart in their own series following a 64-54 win over the defending champions Dynamic Power.
