    JOEL Cagulangan of the CSB-LSGH Junior Blazers returned to the pole position in the fourth week of Chooks-to-Go/NBTC 24 NCAA Edition.

    The graduating guard had an inspiring performance against the JRU Light Bombers.

    Held scoreless in the first half, missing seven attempts, last season’s Finals MVP would not go down with a fight, lighting up the scoreboard for 31 points, 18 coming in the final quarter and two overtime periods, to lift St. Benilde to victory.

    Cagulangan followed that feat with an 11-point, 7-asssist performance in the victory over the Letran Squires, as the Greenies remain on top of the standings with a 4-1 record.

    For the second week in a row, Clint Escamis of the Mapua Red Robins earned the second spot. The Red Robins went 1-1 the past week with Escamis scoring a total of 56 points. Rounding up the top five are Milo Janao of the San Sebastian Staglets, Aaron Fermin of the Arellano Braves, and Joshua David of St. Benilde.

Mapua’s Dan Arches, EAC’s JR Illustrisimo, and San Beda’s Jade Talampas complete the top ten.
