QBE Generals clinch Evo title in E-Leagues

Tanduay Cebu's Danilo Nunez, Zenovia International's Rigil Migallen and Cebu City Marriott Hotel's Josef Chiongbian award the trophy to E-Leagues Evo champions, the QBE Generals last Sunday at the City Sports Club-Cebu gym.

CEBU, Philippines — The QBE Generals swept the Contact Solutions Flying Lemurs in their best-of-three finals with a close 63-61 decision in Game 2 to claim the Evo League title in the Tanduay Athletics CSCC E-Leagues for Basketball Season 13 last Sunday at the City Sports Club-Cebu gym.

Norman Rey Guigue and Johnrey Girasol connived for 33 points, 11 rebounds, four steals and three assists to help Generals in closing out  the Flying Lemurs.

The Generals actually trailed by four after the first period, 9-13, but turned the tide of the match with 21-13 run that vaulted them to a 30-26 edge at the interval.

The two protagonists figured in a nip and tuck battle the rest of the way but the Generals held on their ground against a spirited resistance by the Flying Lemurs to finish the series.

Season MVP Roberto Castro, Jr. rose to the occasion with 11 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two steals in another spectacular performance, albeit in a losing cause for the Flying Lemurs.

In the Elite Classic,  Marcos Jungoy III sparkled with 21 points, eight rebounds, three assists and two steals as the Teleperformance All-Stars lashed back at two-time defending champions Convergys Converters in overtime, 71-67, to forge a rubbermatch in their own race-to-2 series.
