EAC wins

Emilio Aguinaldo College staved off repeated rallies by Our Lady of Lourdes Technological College-Takeshi Motors to eke out a hard-earned 90-81 win in the 2016 MBL Open basketball championship at the EAC Sports and Cultural Center in Manila.

Igee King, son of PBA legend Abe King, scored six of his 18 points in the final three minutes to lift the Generals of newly-appointed coach Ariel Sison to victory over the hard-fighting Blue Warriors.

King’s heroics came after the Blue Warriors battled back from several double-digit deficits to come to within four points, 74-78, and keep the game close and interesting.

Francis Munsayac topscored with 20 points, including three triples, for the Generals, who improved to 2-1 in this tournament supported by Smart Sports, Ironcon Builders, Bread Story, Dickies Underwear, PRC Couriers and Gerry’s Grill.
