Tanduay lives on

Tanduay Light kept its flickering hope for a quarterfinal appearance alive as it crushed MP Hotel Letran, 78-57, yesterday in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

The win allowed the Rhum Masters to tie the AMA University Titans for the final quarterfinals slot with 3-4 records.

Jaypee Belencion waxed hot in the fourth quarter with straight triples to thwart the Warriors’ attempt at a comeback.

Leading by just 53-47, Belencion matched MP’s Jopher Custodio’s torrid shooting early on to blow the game open.
