Clarin near sweep of VisMin Cup Mindao leg elimination

PAGADIAN, ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR — Clarin moved two wins away from an elimination sweep after dismantling JPS Zamboanga City, 95-69, on Saturday in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup at the Pagadian City Gymnasium here.

The Sto. Niño’s remaining games are not easy though, with ALZA Alayon tomorrow, before capping off their three games in three days stretch with undefeated Basilan on Monday.

Clarin unleashed a 19-2 blast, capped by Marvin Hayes’ up-and-under, to turn a 61-62 deficit to a huge 80-64 lead with just 4:34 left in the game.

The victors would go on to outscore JPS in the fourth period, 34-7, which allowed Clarin to go to 6-0, atop the team standings.

John Wilson, who shot 1-of-7 from the field in the first half for just two points, dropped 23 second half points to go with five rebounds and three steals.

Also chipping in for Clarin were Carlo Lastimosa and Hayes with 14 and 12 points, respectively.

Joseph Erioubu added 11 points and eight rebounds while Jayvee Marcelino had 10 points, eight rebounds, and four assists.

Leading Zamboanga was Jerwin Gaco with 16 points and nine rebounds. Mac Cardona was the other player in double figures with 10 points.

The defeat dragged JPS to 4-3, still at the twice-to-beat zone at fourth, but with Roxas lingering around at 3-2.

Zamboanga aims to get back in the win column tomorrow, when it squares off against the 5-0 Peace Riders at 2 pm.

Clarin 95 – Wilson 25, Lastimosa 14, Hayes 12, Eriobu 11, Marcelino 10, Berdian 8, Mangahas 5, Jalem 4, Raymundo 2, Fuentes 2, Baetiong 2, De Mesa 0.
