    2 days ago

    DEPARTMENT of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) continued its hot streak, claiming the scalp of National Housing Authority, 87-84, to sweep Group B in the 8th UNTV Cup eliminations at the Pasig City Sports Center.

    Paul Parreno led five DENR players who scored in doubles figures and scored the buzzer-beating trey that shattered a 77-all count as the Warriors notched their fifth straight in the annual tournament for public servants.

    Ed Rivera scattered 17 points to lead a well-balanced DENR attack while Melvin Bangal and Archie Gamboa added 15 each and Des Ayson and Ryan Abanes combined for 21 points.

    Parreno chipped in 9 points for the Warriors, who matched the record of Group A topnotcher and defending champion Armed Forces of the Philippines.

    Meantime, former champion Philippine National Police kept its flickering second round hopes alive by downing GSIS, 94-63, thanks to the efforts of Richard Villanueva and former University of the East player Olan Omiping.
