WATCH: Magnolia vs Columbian Highlights [October 3, 2018]

Magnolia Hotshots coach Chito Victolero reined in his main players to give them a prolonged rest, limiting their playing minutes.

That did not stop the Hotshots from fashioning a 113-95 romp over hapless Columbian Wednesday that gave the former a share of the lead in the PBA Governors Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Romeo Travis led the onslaught with 32 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists while Mark Barroca, Paul Lee and Ian Sangalang did their part in helping Magnolia realize a third straight win after playing its fourth game in 10 days.
