Magis subdue Justice Boosters after 2 OTs


THE Judiciary Magis turned back the Justice Boosters, 95-88, after two overtime periods on Sunday at the Pasig City Sports Center in the continuation of the UNTV Cup Season 6 elimination round.

Chester Tolomia banged in 34 points, including six treys, while Don Camaso struck for 30 points, highlighted by eight treys, as the ex-pros led Judiciary’s scoring attack.

The two got ample support from Frederick Salamat (12 points) and Warren Ybañez (8).

It was a toe-to-toe battle for most of the game, with the count being tied at 75-all and then 80-all for a rare double-overtime finish, a first in UNTV Cup history.
