SECRETARY Christopher “Bong” Go made an impressive return on the hardcourt, propelling his team to a thrilling 94-86 victory over the IBP in their friendly match Friday at the Genesis 88 Gym along Ecowest Drive in Matina.

Go, the special assistant to President Rodrigo Duterte, erupted with 42 points marked with timely baskets down the stretch to lead the way for his team.

Go nailed six booming treys and drained eight shots from within the arc in a great display of offensive firepower.

Lawyer Armand Dioso made 21 points to pace the IBP.

Warren Cloribel and Eugene Labor chipped in 14 and 10 for the Go-led squad that took minimal support from guest player Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno.

Moreno, a former chairman of Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas, the sports' national governing body, made three baskets. (Rico Jhone Biliran)
