ALVIN Pasaol caught fire in the endgame to tow 1Bataan Risers to the Chooks-to-Go 3x3 Asia Pacific Super Quest playoffs behind a 21-12 thumping of Anytours M1 of Hong Kong on Saturday at SM Megamall Fashion Hall in Mandaluyong.
Pasaol buried three successive long bombs to put the game away late as the Risers scored their first win in Pool B. Pasaol fired nine points built on shots beyond the arc to lead 1Bataan.
"Sobrang saya namin. Unexpected para sa amin na may makakalaro kami na malaki. Malalakas sila pero puso kami eh," he said.
American import Travis Franklin added six points as he ignited the Risers' quick 9-0 blast to start the game.
Karl Dehesa was also a big boost with five points, as Santi Santillan scored one.
1Bataan now shifts its focus against world No. 19 Tokyo Dime.exe of Japan, with the winner grabbing the pole position in the pool.
Joshua Walker led Anytours M1 with seven points, as ex-PBA import Reggie Okosa got four.
Their efforts, however, weren't enough as the Hong Kong-based crew bowed out of the competitions after going winless in their two games.
Bataan 21 - Pasaol 9, Franklin 6, Dehesa 5, Santillan 1.
Anytours M1 12 - Walker 7, Okosa 4, Jones 1, Tsang 0.
