Team Duterte wins nail-biter against IBP in Game 5

TEAM Duterte weathered a solid IBP Davao performance all game long to hack out a 91-90 victory over IBP Davao in Game 5 of their basketball friendly series on Saturday at the Genesis 88 Gym in Ecoland.

Team Duterte played much compose at the crunch marked with good shot selection and cracking defensive stops to win its fifth game in a row.

Sec. Christopher “Bong” Go scored 36 points as three others put up double digit baskets for Team Duterte.

Go, the special assistant to President Rodrigo Duterte, shot only three triples his lowest so far in the series after averaging nearly seven treys a game.

But the sweet-shooting executive brought his superb shooting within arc hitting running jump shots and pull-up jumpers at all angles to put Team Duterte five games ahead in the series.

Armand Dioso made 35 points for the winless IBP Davao. Gil Ciudadano had 20.

It was another setback for IBP Davao as the National IBP League champions fell short once again in the down the wire finish.

IBP loss three games in the series with the game decided by less than six points.

Warren Cloribel poured in 13 points as John Flores and Eugene Labor had 10 apiece for Team Duterte which won Game 4, 103-97, few days back.
