Another big game from Vosotros sends Caloocan streaking in MPBL

Almond Vosotros has been nothing but a welcome addition for Caloocan
Almond Vosotros, the newest Supremo, delivered once again to give Caloocan its second straight win in the 2018 Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Anta-Datu Cup.
A longtime member of the Gilas Pilipinas program, Vosotros came away with 21 points, including a free throw in the dying seconds that ensured the Supremos' 74-69 triumph over the Imus Bandera last Wednesday at the Imus Sports Complex.
Following back-to-back victories in the tournament, Caloocan has improved its win-loss record to 4-8 in the tough northern division.
Vosotros, who had a brief stint playing in the PBA for the Blackwater Elite, made that possible after averaging 22 points per game in his first two outings.
The loss was the first at home for the Bandera, who now slipped to 5-6 after suffering their third straight loss.
Earlier, Valenzuela got back on the winning track and won its first game under new head coach Eric Samson as the Classic won over the Pampanga Lanterns, 90-82.
Paolo Hubalde had a breakout game, finishing with 25 points. He capped his game-long brilliance by adding 10 rebounds to come away with a double-double effort.
Kido Cabrera and Chris de Chavez added 11 points apiece while Floyd Dedicatoria and Ford Ruaya chipped in 10 each in a display of balance firepower by Valenzuela.
The win was also a promising sign for Samson, who filled in the void left by former PBA mentor Chris Gavina.
Gavina stepped down form his post after the Classic struggled in the elimination round, paving the way for the entry of Samson.
