Krushev Ferrer had 20 points and Nueva Ecija picked up a win on its home court last Sunday after beating the Paranaque Aces in the National Basketball League (NBL)-Philippines at the San Leonardo Gym.
Khali Baldeh added 14 points and 11 rebounds and Edgie Jejillos had 13 points as the Nueva Ecija Bespren improved their record to 2-4 in front of their home fans, while also bouncing back from a loss to the Bulacan Makabayan last Saturday.
Joseph Celso had 20 points, 16 rebounds, and two blocks in Bulacan’s 94-86 win over Nueva Ecija before finishing with 10 points, 13 rebounds, and two blocks in Makabayan’s 70-65 victory over the Rizal Spartans last Sunday.
Noy Bermudes finished with 22 points, six rebounds, and four assists to give Paranaque a 76-68 win over Rizal last Saturday as the Aces (3-2) gained a share of third place with Bulacan and Taguig at the end of last weekend’s games.
Rizal slipped to 1-5 after losing all its matches in San Leonardo, Nueva Ecija, which also hosted a basketball clinic for kids presided by NBL commissioner Nandy Garcia.
