San Juan remains the pacesetter in the 2018 MPBL Anta-Datu Cup

Larry Rodriguez did it all to help San Juan keep its spotless slate in the 2018 Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Anta-Datu Cup.

Rodriguez tallied 10 points, seven rebounds, four assists, four blocks, and two steals as the Knights stampeded all over visiting Laguna, 81-56, last Wednesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

The ex-pro was at the front of the charge as the home team would score no less than 20 points in the first three quarters.

John Wilson and Rian Ayonayon also added 13 and 11 points, respectively, as San Juan marched forward to a still league-leading 5-0 standing.

Meanwhile, Bulacan extended its win run to three in a row after rallying past competitive Davao Occidental, 88-85, in overtime.

Hans Thiele scored four of his 13 points in the extra period while also adding four rebounds for the now 4-1 Kuyas.

Their respective losses dropped the Heroes and the Tigers to similar 2-3 records.
