    ROI Sumang, Aljon Mariano, and Jaypee Belencion combined for nine triples as Tanduay Light defeated Jumbo Plastic Linoleum, 79-61, on Monday to win in its first game of the PBA D-League Foundation Cup at the JCSGO gym.

    Sumang had 17 points, Mariano added 16, while Belencion tallied 14 for the Rhum Masters.

    Belencion had a team-high four triples and was joined by Sumang and Mariano in hitting their outside shots, with the Rhum Masters converting all their three-pointers in the second half to pull away.

    Tanduay coach Lawrence Chongson refused to be carried away with the win.

    “One game doesn’t make a conference,” Chongson said. “Maybe we just caught Jumbo flat-footed dahil marami silang bagong players.”

    No one from the Giants scored in double figures, with Denice Villamor leading the squad with nine points.

    The scores:

    Tanduay Light (79)—Sumang 17, Mariano 16, Belencion 14, Santos 9, Foronda 7, Cenal 4, Escueta 4, Rono 4, Jumao-as 2, Ilagan 1, Eriobu 1, Dela Paz 0, Tagarda 0.
