    Pasig gives up early lead to fall to Beijing in 3x3 Xiong An Challenger opener

    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.

    Serbian reinforcement Nikola Pavlovic scored a pair, while Troy Rike had one.

    The loss sent Pasig Chooks to a must-win situation against world no. 30 The Hague at 9:40 p.m. to at least notch a top two finish in Pool C.

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

    The Scores:

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