    Aug 23, 2019

    PASIG Chooks suffered a stinging 22-14 loss to Beijing in its opening assignment in the 2019 Fiba 3x3 Xiong An Challenger Friday in Hebei.

    The President's Cup champions weren't able to sustain their early 5-2 start as the Chinese asserted their might in the paint to score 12 unanswered points and grab a 14-5 advantage with 4:50 remaining.

    That proved to be a hole too deep to climb from, with Zheng Yi burying the game-icing deuce with eight seconds remaining.

    Joshua Munzon led Pasig with eight points, while Dylan Ababou got three in the tough defeat.

    Ju Mingxin paced world no. 17 Beijing with nine points.

    The Scores:

    BEIJING 22 -- Ju 9, Zheng 5, Li 4, Liu 4.

    PASIG 14 -- Munzon 8, Ababou 3, Pavlovic 2, Rike 1.
