Guiao-less RB loses against Reyes-less SLR

With Coach Yeng Guiao in the U.S., looks like Red Bull is having a hard time. The team is now with a 3-5 win-loss card and under Gee Abanilla for the mean time.

In this game, the veterans of Sta. Lucia led the way. The team went back in the game after a 19-point third quarter deficit. Dennis Espino and Marlou Aquino combined for 11 points in the fourth quarter and Espino finished with 17. Paolo Mendoza, another veteran, finished with 14 points.

For Redbull, Gabby Espinas had a career-high-tying 20 points and 13 rebounds, Jeff Chan finished in double figures for the first time with 15 and Cyrus Baguio and Carlo Sharma had 13 and 10, respectively. But all of this faded in the latter part of the game which is quite disappointing since the team dominated at first.

The game ended with 83-80 in favor of SLR.

Highest scorers for each team:
  • Sta. Lucia - Williams 17, Espino 16, Mendoza 14
  • Red Bull 80 - Espinas 20, Chan 15, Baguio 13
