Box Scores. 

Nothing came easy for the GlobalPort Batang Pier but they finally earned their first victory of the conference after edging Meralco, 126-123, in an epic double overtime battle on Sunday at the Mall of Asia Arena.


They needed to overcome a huge 55-point effort from Meralco import Allen Durham and two extra periods before they finally sealed it thanks to a huge three-pointer from Jay Washington and a game-winner from Anthony Semerad.

GlobalPort import Michael Glover finished with 26 points – less than half of Durham’s output – alongside 16 rebounds and five assists but will come out the happier of the two reinforcements after helping lead his team to its first win in five games.

Semerad and Terrence Romeo each added 24 points with Semerad going 6-for-8 (75-percent) from beyond the arc. Stanley Pringle added 15 points, six rebounds and eight assists for the Batang Pier.
