    AFP Cavaliers ride Bautista's hot hands to stay unbeaten in UNTV Cup

    Oct 21, 2019

    DEFENDING champion Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Malacañang-Philippine Sports Commission stayed unbeaten in their respective groups in the 8th UNTV Cup at the Pasig City Sports Center.

    The AFP Cavaliers rode on the hot shooting of former Letran star Boyet Bautista to beat the Department of Agriculture Food Masters, 91-84, in Group A elims while the Malacañang-PSC Kamao carved out a 75-64 win over the Philippine National Police Responders in Group B action of the event organized by UNTV president and CEO Dr. Daniel Razon.

    The PITC Global Traders evened their Group A record to 2-2 after a 130-67 drubbing of the SSS Kabalikat – thanks to Ryan Regalado who led six PITC players in double figures.

    Still deadly despite the excess pounds, Bautista got the better in an exciting shootout with ex-University of Santo Tomas star Emerson Oreta in leading the three-time champions Cavaliers to their fourth win in as many outings.

    The 5-foot-7 Bautista erupted for 28 points – the bulk of those coming in the final half where the Cavaliers made a decisive run that gave them the lead for good.

    Romeo Almerol and Jerry Lumungsod ably supported Bautista with 19 and 17 points as the Cavaliers ended the Food Masters’ two-game winning run.
