May 8 - 14, 2014 by Kabayan Andrei Avila (Kabayan Weekly)
Jes De Guzman had a hot shooting game last Friday, May 2, at the Asmaa Gym-Al Twar 3 in the ongoing PBBL-Western Union Cup Season 9 Midget Division that led to the defeat of MAF team in the final score of 77-62.
Philippine Tailoring Team had implemented a tight defense against MAF in the first half containing them with 32 points only for the first two quarters of the game.
PT guards Siob Gorospe and Mark Filipinas took control of the tempo putting their team for an eaight point lead to start the fourth quarter, but MAF's power forward Bong Punzalan and guard JR Grumal made some adjustments in the last quarter to put the deficit by four points with five minutes remaining in the regulation.
However, it was a no stopping spree for De Guzman who poured easy lay ups scoring four straight baskets leaving MAF hopeless for a comeback rally after the lead blew to 14 points with less than two minutes remaining.
"Our defense won us the game, we focused on defending their key players," PT team captain Robbie De Castro said after the game.
De Guzman had a team high 16 points and was awarded best player of the game.
