Columbian Dyip coach Ricky Dandan saw some stirrings of life within his team during a recent loss to San Miguel Beer.

On Sunday, the Dyip gave Dandan a full-blown display of energy that resulted in a morale-boosting 115-07 win over the Phoenix Fuel Masters in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

John Fields had 29 points and 26 rebounds and his local teammates did their ample share as Columbian snapped out of a three-game slide and improved to a 4-5 slate overall.

Glenn Khobuntin, Rashawn McCarthy, Jerramy King and Eric Camson sure did heed Dandan’s call.

Khobuntin scored a career-high 18 points, McCarthy added 15 points and eight assists, King chipped in 15 points and 10 boards and Camson 13 markers.

Eugene Phelps scored 34 points and 22 rebounds against nine turnovers, mostly as a result of the triple teams thrown at him by Columbian.

The scores:

Columbian 115 – Fields 29, Khobuntin 18, King 15, McCarthy 15, Camson 13, Tubid 10, Escoto 6, Ababou 3, Sara 2, Cahilig 2, Corpuz 2, Celda 0.

Phoenix 107 – Phelps 34, Wright 32, Perkins 14, Revilla 5, Intal 5, Wilson 5, Chan 4, Mendoza 2, Kramer 2, Chua 2, Jazul 2, Gamboa 0, Dehesa 0.

Quarterscores: 17-29, 44-48, 73-75, 115-107.
