Scoring phenom Fred Pelisa-men of powerhouse APC Brothers continues to scorch the nets at will in the ongoing 2nd Annual BANMI Budweiser Cup, and thus, holds a firm yet slim lead in the scoring race through one round of the play.
The skillful guard has seen action in all of his squad's seven games, and has torched the nets for 178 points, resulting in a league-best average of 25.4 points per outing. But what makes Pelisamen's first round a little bit sweeter is that his squad currently ranks second in the league with a respectable 6-1 win-loss card.
Right behind Pelisamen is fellow rival Dave Sablan of the Diablo. The long-time San Antonio scoring machine still makes a statement each time he steps on the court, and has sizzled for 172 points for an average of 24.6 points per match. His squad is also having a solid run courtesy of a 5-2 record.
Former National player and Micronesian Games veteran Mark Wallace follows in the No. 3 spot with an average of 24.1 points per game. Playing under the San Vicente Sunrisers flag, Wallace has taken leadership of the scoring duties for his squad and has turned the lights on for 169 points.
Pelisamen's elder brother, Randy, is also making a name for himself as he averages 21.4 markers per game for Lebwel. Though quiet and humble, the guard catches many flatfooted with his aggressive play and soft touch from the perimeter. He has a team-high 150 points.
Veteran and fastbreak master Tony Diaz of the Brothers comes in the No. 5 spot after canning 116 points for an average of 16.6 points per game, while George Masga of Diablo follows with an average of 16.3 points per game after slicing and dicing his way for 114 points.
For his part, Erik Ouimette of the Sun Devils holds a seventh-best 16.2 average, while Tinian's John Santos, who plays with the league-leading Toyota Ol'Aces I, sports a 15.3 average for the eighth slot.
Capping off the top 10 list are slotman Jawn Joyner of the Sunrisers and forward Edsel Mendoza of the Ol'Aces I. Joyner currently posts a 14.4 average after tormenting opponents for 101 points, while Mendoza is riding on a 13.2 average with 92 points in his name.
  



Vibes clinches U25 title - 4 months ago
Vibes banked on a good start en route to a 64-51 title win over the Ol'Aces 2 in the U25 division of the 2016 TanHoldings Christmas Basketball Tournament last Saturday at the Gillette Multipurpose Gymnasium. A 23-13 scoring spurt in the first quarter gave Vibes the early momentum and though the Ol'Aces 2 threatened the eventual champion a bit in the second period, the Matt Duenas-anchored squad still posted a double-digit winning margin in the one-game finals. Duenas and Franklin Macahito...   [read more]
