    The Tamaraws tap some reinforcements for the MBL.

    FIL-German Glenn Gravengard scored 18 to lead FEU-NRMF-Gerry's Grill to an 89-57 victory over Victoria Sports-MLQU at the start of the 2017 MBL Open basketball championship at the EAC Sports Center in Ermita, Manila.

    The 6-foot-1 Gravengard, who played for the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds from 2011 to 12, scored 11 points on in the second quarter when FEU overpowered MLQU, 42-30.

    Gravengard's half-brother Clay Crellin had 12 points despite battling foul trouble. Gravengard and Crellin have the same Filipina mother now based in Canada.

    Crellin won the MVP title in December when he led FEU-NRMF to the MBL title.

    Veteran Erwin Sta. Maria scored 14 points, including three triples, while ex-PBA star Jerwin Gaco added 10 points for the Tamaraws.

    PBA D-League veteran Jason Grimaldo scored 11 for Victoria.

    Wang's Ballclub-AsiaTech also debuted in style, beating last year's runner-up Emilio Aguinaldo College, 82-81.

    Former Arellano University player Ralph Salcedo hit two free throws with 11 seconds left to salvage the win.

    Salcedo's free throws came after Gabriel Aguas of EAC scored on a layup to tie the score at 80-all and CJ Cadua split his free throws to give the Generals a one-point cushion, 81-80.

    Rey Publico topscored with 29 points for Wang's, while John Tayongtong and Argen Sabalza added 11 points apiece.

    Sidney Onwubere paced the Generals with 23 points in the tournament supported by Smart Sports,  Dickies Underwear, Star Bread and Gerry's Grill.
