Another triple-double for Jeron as Flying V sweeps elims
Teng finished with 24 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists in the Thunder's 10th straight win, allowing them to sweep the elimination round, the fourth team ever in the history of the league.

Jeron Teng sure makes a strong case as the next number 1 pick in the PBA.

The former La Salle star had another incredible output in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup Tuesday, posting a third straight triple-double to lead Flying V to a 116-101 win over Batangas at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Teng finished with 24 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists in the Thunder's 10th straight win, allowing them to sweep the elimination round, the fourth team ever in the history of the league.

However, as incredible as Teng's stat line was, the bruising forward didn't actually lead Flying V in scoring. Thomas Torres did as the La Salle gunner fired 26 points, built from a perfect 6-for-6 from deep.

Eric Salamat added 22 points for Eric Altamirano's crew who enter the semifinals as the top seed.

The loss put Batangas in the number 5 spot and they will meet CEU in the quarterfinals starting on Thursday.

Earlier in the day, the Scorpions pounced on Racal Motors, 88-77, to secure the no. 4 seed.
