Whether at home or away from their comfort zone, the Pasay Voyagers are making everyone known they’re ready for a playoff push.
On Tuesday at the Cuneta Astrodome, they had added another victim in the Paranaque Patriots, the sixth straight opponent who fell prey to the up-and-coming team that is making headway in the MPBL Lakan Season.
The Voyagers’ convincing 79-60 triumph was supported by another solid game from Dhon Reverente, who dished out another double-double performance.
Reverente ended up with 15 points and 14 rebounds to typify the Voyagers’ domination of the Patriots.
Offensively, Elmar Moradas paced Pasay’s onslaught as he finished with 17 markers. Jaypee Belencion also tallied 15, Axel Inigo tallied 12, while Raymond Ilagan contributed 1o for Pasay, which shot a steady 12-of-24 shooting from beyond the arc (50-percent).
Pasay now improved its win-loss record to 9-5 to stay in sixth spot of this tournament put up by Senator Manny Pacquiao with PBA legend and former MVP Kenneth Duremdes serving as commissioner.
Bulacan coasted to its third straight win under new head coach Kerwin McCoy, but not after the Kuyas went through two overtime periods and a big break in the last six tenths of the second to nip the Navotas Clutch, 105-104, in a thrilling encounter.
JR Alabanza hit two pressure packed free throws off a foul called on Jhong Bondoc, allowing the Kuyas to escape with the win.
The Kuyas improved their win-loss record to 8-5 and stayed on seventh spot.
Makati bucked a slow start before whipping Marikina, 85-70.
