Metropac-San Beda drops 49-point hammer on CD14-Trinity
Metropac-San Beda moved closer to a playoff berth in the 2019 PBA D-League

Metropac-San Beda hardly broke a sweat against CD14 Designs-Trinity for a 49-point rout, 119-70, to inch closer to a playoff berth in the 2019 PBA D-League, Tuesday at JCSGO Gym in Cubao.

James Canlas started off the mauling when he went for 14 in the first quarter and finished with 16 points to lead the Movers' 18-3 opening salvo.

"Medyo maganda ang simula namin," said coach Boyet Fernandez. "Gusto ko lang makita ang attitude ng players namin how they react in this game, lalo na we're facing a winless team."

Clint Doliguez chipped in 12 points in the victory as four other players got to double-digit in scoring as Metropac-San Beda forced a tie for the Foundation Group top spot at 6-1 together with CEU.

It was all Movers in the game, with their stingy defense leading to 26 White Stallion turnovers and turned to 33 points in their favor.

The snoozefest resulted to a seveth straight defeat for the cellar-dwelling CD14 Designs-Trinity.

Kimley Medina poured 17 points in the losing cause for the White Stallions.

Meanwhile, Diliman College-Gerry's Grill fanned its hopes for a playoff berth with a 108-95 drubbing of Wangs Basketball.

Beninese big man Kevin Gandjeto scored a team-best 33 points, on top of 17 rebounds, three steals, and two blocks as the Blue Dragons pulled up to an even 3-3 standing.

The victory was a big morale-booster for Diliman-Gerry's as coach Rensy Bajar believes that his side can snag a top four finish in the Foundation Group.

"The way were playing, we're starting to pick up. I think we can show some more and play  good basketball," he said.
