Abcede shines as Pañeros down Spartans in IBP hoop

CEBU, Philippines - The streak-shooting Rene Abcede stole the show as the Pañeros downed the Spartans, 67-63, in the 2017 Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP)-Cebu Basketball League at the Capitol Parish gym along Escario Street, Cebu City.

Abcede, a former Eagle, scattered 25 points on top of 10 rebounds in his first double-double show in Pañeros' uniform. They now hold an even 2-2 record in a tie with the Dissenters and Rebels, who notched their second win at the expense of the Badboys, 62-59. Marco Pacoli and Nikki Alcordo each scored 14 for the Rebels.

The Punishers stayed on top of the heap with an immaculate 4-0 slate after crushing the Dissenters, 100-78, behind a 29-point effort by Tope Ang.

In the other game, Frank Dinsay had 17 points and nine rebounds as the Eagles cruised to their third straight win via a 76-75 cliffhanger over last year's champion Sub Zero Idols.

The Sub Zero Idols actually had a chance to wrap up the match but Judge Sammy Malazarte missed a potential game-winning shot with five seconds left to play.
