DENR rips AFP in Game 1

    170

    DEPARTMENT of Environment and Natural Resources struck early and went on to whip injury-hit defending champion Armed Forces of the Philippines, scoring a rousing 90-73 victory in Game 1 of their best-of-three title series in the 8th UNTV Cup over the weekend at Paco Arena, Manila.

    Without top players Wilfredo Casulla and Jeffrey Quiambao and veteran playmaker Eugene Tan playing in pain, the AFP Cavaliers proved to be an easy prey against the DENR Warriors, who scored almost at will to get back at their elimination round tormentor.

    More than that, the Warriors moved on the cusp of winning the title on their first try in the event organized by UNTV President and CEO Dr. Daniel Razon for public servants where the chosen charity of the winning team gets a tax-free P4 million prize.

    The Warriors can make their chosen charity very happy if they can complete a series sweep next Monday as the finals and the newly-introduced 3×3 tourney shift to the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
