2019 HARD TO GUARD STANDINGS
STI BALAGTAS 2-4
Daniel Chatman and National U did nothing but take advantage of severely shorthanded UP for an 82-59 win in the 2019 Milcu Sports Basketball presented by Got Skills Hard to Guard Tournament a week ago at the Trinity Gym in Quezon City.
Chatman, a high-flying Filipino-American guard, scored 18 points and collected five rebounds, three assists, and two steals while hardworking forward Karl Penano contributed 13 markers and five boards.
The contest was close for the first six minutes until Chapman and the Bulldogs outscored the Fighting Maroons, 32-18, up until halftime.
National U would not be threatened from there en route to a bounce back win that improves its standing to 3-1.
UP had four players in double-digits led by scoring guard Jaggie Gregorio with 20 points. Without substitutes in this game, however, they quickly ran out of gas for their third loss in five games.
Meanwhile, UST also barged back into the win column after venting its ire on STI-Balagtas, 74-60.
Versatile forward Makoy Marcos topped the scoring column for the now 3-1 Growling Tigers with 13 points.
In other results, Trinity University downed UCC, 75-32, before defaulting to TIP six days later.
Trinity University now stands at 3-1 while TIP is at 3-3 and UCC is at 0-4.
