    John Tambeling shows way as Wangs halts five-game slide with victory over AMA Online

    Feb 27, 2017

    WANGS squandered a huge lead but recovered in time to avert another meltdown, beating AMA Online Education, 98-93, on Monday in the PBA D-League Aspirants' Cup at the JCSGO Gym in Cubao.

    John Tambeling scattered 21 points as the Couriers snapped a five-game skid.

    The Couriers, coming off a stinging 97-96 loss to Batangas, improved their win-loss record to 2-5.

    Wangs also spoiled the return of AMA star Jeron Teng, who missed a game to play for Mighty Sports in the Dubai International basketball tournament.

    Rey Publico had 18 points and 11 rebounds, while Marlon Gomez and John Tayongtong each scored 16.

    Teng led the Titans with 25 points, collared seven rebounds but had six turnovers in over 38 minutes of play.

    Behind the burly forward, the Titans erased a 15-point deficit with a 13-5 run to open the third period. 

    The Couriers regained control with a 9-0 run capped by Tayongtong's acrobatic layup with 5:44 to go, turning a 78-all deadlock into an 87-78 lead.

    "Ang dami naming natutunang lessons. This time sinigurado naming hindi na kami magkakamalo," said Wangs coach Pablo Lucas, whose team blew a 24-point lead in the loss to Batangas last week. 

    Juami Tiongson had 21 points for AMA, while Ryan Arambulo and Jay-R Taganas added 14 points apiece.

     

    The scores:

    Wangs 98 - Tambeling 21, Publico 18, M. Gomez 16, Tayongtong 16, Montuano 14, Regalado 8, Labing-isa 5, Brana 0, Enriquez 0, King 0, Salcedo 0.

    AMA 93 - Teng 25, Tiongson 21, Arambulo 14, Taganas 14, Alabanza 12, Riley 5, Flores 2, Baluyot 0, Barua 0, Bragais 0, Jordan 0, Tobias 0.

    Quarterscores: 26-20; 52-44; 76-73; 98-93.
