MANILA, Philippines — Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) debuted triumphantly while National Housing Authority and Ombudsman scored contrasting wins in the 8th UNTV Cup over the weekend at the Pasig City Sports Center.

The DENR Warriors leaned on the heroics of Ralph Lansang to outlast the GSIS Furies, 101-98, while the NHA Builders of Bennett Palad defeated the Philippine National Police Responders, 85-81, in Group II elims.

The Ombudsman Graft Busters spoiled the SSS Kabalikat’s debut with a 110-73 drubbing in the lone Group I match of the event presented by UNTV through its President and CEO Dr. Daniel Razon.

Lansang shattered a 98-all count with a three-point shot with barely four ticks left to cap a brilliant 51-point show – so far the highest scoring output in the league for public servants.

He was ably supported by Ed Rivera who posted 22 points, eight rebounds and five assists that helped negate the 49-point performance of GSIS’ Bernante Parreño, including a league record 12 triples.
