Statmatsing of the Day - March 18, 2011

When it rains... it pours. Smart-Gilas continues to wax hot while the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters is starting a losing streak as Gilas downed the Painters, 99-94. In a battle where former National mentor is pitted with current National mentor, Rajko Toroman outshone Yeng Guiao.

The last time these two mentors faced off, Wynne Arboleda clobbered a fan. Yeng Guiao was still with Air21 then.

A major reason for the win is JV Casio. The former DLSU guard erupted for 29 points, 3 rebounds, and 4 assists. He was also online from the three-point range with five conversions. Three Team RP cagers scored 20 points and more.

Recently naturalized Marcus Douthit dominated anew with 23 points, 18 rebounds. 3 assists, 2 steals, and 4 blocks.

Because he is imba, he is not qualified to claim local honors.

Asi Taulava and Sol Mercado of the Meralco Bolts, Marc Pingris of the B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados, and Chris Tiu of Smart-Gilas round up the top 5 of the Day.

Game over.
