Biñan City, Cebu continue to build MPBL winning runs

Riding on the momentum of its big win over inaugural staging champion Batangas City, Biñan City picked up its second straight victory by adding Rizal to its list of victims following a 92-82 triumph late Wednesday night at the Ynares Center in Antipolo City.

Cebu walloped Navotas, 83-71, in the other game, behind an MVP-type performance from Will McAloney.

McAloney had a monster performance, finishing with 32 points and 14 boards as he proved to be an unstoppable force down low for the Sharks, who picked up their third straight win and improved their record to 9-10.

Like Cebu, Biñan City is starting to gradually build a winning run.

Against the Golden Coolers of Rizal, the Heroes of Biñan turned to their own main man in Allan Mangahas, who had another double-double showing to propel his squad to its sixth win in 20 games.

Mangahas ended up with 12 points and 11 assists to lead the charge for the Heroes, who had 18 seconds chance points, nine more than their rivals.

Rebounding was also a glaring advantage for Biñan, which collared 51 boards compared to only 35 for Rizal.
