Computer Specialists sizzle in VisMin Cup resumption

MANILA, Philippines — Mandaue picked up where it left off the last time out, pulling off another big win with an 86-53 rout of Tabogon at the resumption of the Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup yesterday in Alcantara, Cebu yesterday.

Dyll Roncal, with 15 points, Joseph Nalos (14), Red Cachuela (10) and Gileant Delator (10)  led the way as the Computer Specialists followed up their 97-71 blasting of Tubigon Bohol.

Mandaue improved to 3-1 with a lone loss suffered at the hands of unbeaten leader Talisay (3-0).

Arvie Bringas, who erupted for 24 points in their narrow 102-99 win over Tubigon this week, made 12 markers this time as the Voyagers slipped to 1-2

Meanwhile, the Games and Amusements Board (GAB), though lauding the league’s swift action, may still come out with its own sanctions on the involved personalities in the controversial match between Lapu-Lapu and Siquijor.

GAB chairman Baham Mitra said a full investigation by its officials present at the Alcantara bubble is underway.

GAB reminded the league they are being watched closely as part of its responsibility to protect the “integrity of professional sports at all times.”

VisMin Super Cup officials, led by COO Rocky Chan, threw the book on erring parties Thursday, with Siquijor being banned from the league while six Lapu-Lapu players including the entire coaching staff were meted suspension and fines.

A memorandum about P1 million and expulsion to the next possible violators has also been issued to the remaining teams.

That was after a preposterous game Wednesday afternoon marred by deliberate turnovers and fouls, botched free throws and blown lay-ups. It was later stopped at halftime with Lapu-Lapu on top, 27-13.
