The Mapua University Cardinals used a second quarter run to pull away and beat the Treston International College Golden Lions, 90-72 in the latest game day of the 25th Fr. Martin’s Cup Summer Tournament Friday, April 12 at the San Beda University Gym in Mendiola, Manila.
After a close opening quarter, the twin tower combination of Warren Bonifacio and Christian Buñag kickstarted a huge second quarter rally for the Cardinals.
Using a 13-6 run, the NCAA side transformed slim margin to a more comfortable 38-21 edge and never looked back for a decisive victory over the ISAA squad in Seniors division A action.
The Cardinals controlled the game until the fourth period, although did experience some resistance from the Golden Lions which trimmed the deficit to just 69-59.
But a strong close out from Mapua sealed the win. Bonifacio topped all scorers with 16 points while guard Adrian Nocum contributed 15 markers. Buñag accounted for 14.
