Statmatsing of the Day - April 13, 2011

Upset Wednesday was the theme for the April 13 games. In the first game, the Air21 Express had to escape a huge 18-point gap with an impressive 46 scored points in the third quarter as they claimed the seat to face the Talk N Text Tropang Texters from the Alaska Aces, 97 to 94.

LD Williams went from hero to goat when he botched his dribble and when he shot an ill-advised halfcourt heave that could have been scored closer if he thought of passing it to a teammate.

Rain or Shine almost duplicated Air21’s feat especially with the weak offensive game of Nate Brumfield but Mark Caguioa went berserk.

Yes... The Spark scored 22 of his 30 points in the payoff half as the Brgy. Ginebra Kings eliminated the Elasto Painters, 92 to 82. Caguioa was the top man of the day as he also contributed 11 rebounds and 4 assists. His booming shots were also served fire extinguisher every time the Elasto Painters try to start a rally.

The best import of the day is hereby given to the winning import... that’s not Brumfield. When Air21’s guns were offline, Alpha Bangura was trying everything to rub his energy to his teammates. And it did – with Bangura posting in 28 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and a block.

Rounding up the Top 5 best locals are Dondon Hontiveros, LA Tenorio, Larry Rodriguez, and Joe Devance.

Game over.
