PBA Media Bureau

Barangay Ginebra San Miguel withstood the early exit of star forward Japeth Aguilar due to injury, fending off the gutsy Blackwater Elite, 99-90, in the Oppo PBA Philippine Cup Friday at Cuneta Astrodome.

Aguilar, who already had 14 points in the first half, hurt himself in the second quarter after landing awkwardly following a dunk at the 3:55 mark of the second quarter. He never returned to the game and was feared to have suffered a hyperextended right elbow.

But his teammates stepped up in his absence. Scottie Thompson delivered an all-around performance of 13 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists and two steals. LA Tenorio top-scored with 15 points, while Joe Devance and Dave Marcelo each added 13 markers apiece.

Sumang had 20 points while Raymond Aguilar buried four triples en route to 16 points. Mac Belo also had 16 points for the Elite which fell to 5-5. – InterAksyon.com

Blackwater Elite 90 – Sumang 20, Belo 16, Aguilar 16, Sena 14, Dela Cruz 7, Gamalinda 6, Miranda 5, Buenafe 4, Pascual 2, Ababou 0, Pinto 0.
