Senate five stuns DOJ

Warren Tan erupted for 30 points while Sen. Sonny Angara added 20 points as Senate foiled Department of Justice, 84-77, in the UNTV Cup Executive Face-Off held over the weekend at the Pasig City Sports Center.

A legislative staff member, Tan exploded in the second quarter where the Sentinels outscored the Justice Boosters, 30-15, to surge ahead, 45-37.

The Sentinels then wisely protected their lead to notch their first win in three games while snapping DoJ’s two-game winning run.

Judiciary, meantime, forged a four-way tie for the lead after also halting Philippine National Police’s two-game winning with a 75-69 win – thanks to the troika of Romulo Paras, Jr., Manuel Gerard Tomacruz and Jose Midas Marquez.

Tomacruz led the Magis with 16 points while Paras and Marquez combined for 26 points – most of them in the second quarter where they took command.

Also with a 2-1 card was Armed Forces of the Philippines which trounced Bureau of Customs, 114-41, in the event organized by UNTV president and CEO Daniel Razon.

Gen. Mel Feliciano led the Cavaliers with 24 points while Col. Oliver Veslino added 16.
