    Batangas bucks error-prone game to hold off Makati in MPBL

    Jul 11, 2018

    BATANGAS CITY – Inaugural MPBL champion Batangas City survived an error-prone game against Makati, thanks to big games from Teytey Teodoro and Jhaymo Eguilos who presided over a 72-65 win late Tuesday night at the Batangas City Coliseum here.

    The Tanduay-backed Athletics committed a total of 30 turnovers but somehow found a way to win their second game in three starts against a game Skyscrapers squad.

    Teodoro hit two timely triples down the stretch to bail out the Athletics. His trey at the 5:03 mark of the fourth period put Batangas City on top, 67-62, and he added another one for good measure inside the final three minutes.

    Earlier, Caloocan Supremos-Longrich defeated Rizal, 92-80.

    Batangas City head coach Mac Tan couldn’t hide his frustrations after the game.

    “Wow! 30 turnovers. Parang hindi kami yung naglalaro. Swerte lang talaga kami nanalo pa kami but I was really, really frustrated after the game,” said Tan.

    “Nagalit ako kasi imbes na mag-improve yung laro sa second half, lalo pang dumami yung turnovers. We had 14 in the first half, then we committed 16 in the second half. Hindi na ako makapag-coach ng maayos pero may staff was able to do a good job calming me down.”

    Eguilos finished with 17 points on top of eight boards.
