Cabahug waxes hot as Medical Depot defeats 7A Primus

Patrick “The Cebuano Sniper” Cabahug waxed hot as he drained nine three-point shots en route to scoring 31 points to lead Medical Depot past the 7A Primus, 86-72, in the Filbasket tournament on Sunday at the Subic Bay Gymnasium.

Cabahug was especially lethal in the third canto where he drained five three-pointers that helped Medical Depot turn what was a slim 44-41 lead into a huge 71-54 advantage heading to the fourth and final period. Cabahug eventually finished with 31 points, eight rebounds and two assists as Medical Depot finished the elimination round with a 6-4 win-loss card.

Simon Camacho added 12 points, six boards, five assists, two steals and two blocks in yet another brilliant all-around performance for the team that is composed mostly of players from the south.

Achie Iñigo led the way for 7A Primus with 22 points.

In other games, the Pasig Sta. Lucia Realtors took down the erstwhile league-leaders AICC Manila, 78-74, to hand the latter their second loss in the tournament.

Cedrick Ablaza and Ryan Costelo paced Pasig with 14 points each while Rudy Lingganay and Tyron Chan chipped in 12 markers apiece to raise their record to 5-4. The loss dropped Manila to 7-2 and into a tie for the lead in the standings with the San Juan Knights.

Burlington EOG Sports also defeated the FSD Makati-Army, 105-85, to snatch their sixth win in 10 matches. FSD bowed out of the competition with a 2-8 mark.
