Davao Occidental scored another convincing victory to commence its campaign in the MPBL Lakan Cup, getting the better of Caloocan, 76-69, Friday at Marist Gym in Marikina.
Yvan Ludovice was an efficient machine and wound up with 13 points, five assists, and four rebounds in just 18 minutes of action.
Billy Ray Robles and Bonbon Custodio also added 10 markers of their own to help the Tigers roar to back-to-back wins to start the season.
Joseph Terso then chimed in nine points as the forward duo of Mark Yee and Marco Balagtas merged for 14 markers and 17 boards.
That total team effort was more than enough to put away the Supremos who got a big scoring night from Almond Vosotros who dropped 21 points on top of six assists and five rebounds. That was far from enough, though, from preventing his side from remaining winless in two starts.
Avoiding the same fate was Cebu which jumped on home team Marikina onto a 50-42 decision for their first win.
Patrick Cabahug showed the way with 14 points and three rebounds as the Sharks bounced back following a season-opening loss.
On the other hand, the Shoemasters dropped to 0-2.
