THE Sykes Pioneers defeated the three-time defending champions Converters, 71-62, to gain third place in the standings of the Elite Classic Division of the Tanduay Athletics E-League for Basketball last Saturday at the City Sports Club-Cebu.

The win, Sykes’ sixth in a row, gave the Pioneers an 11-3 win-loss record as it tries to keep in step with the league-leading Accenture and Teleperformance, which also won their games last Saturday.

Former University of Cebu standout Janjan Auditor finished with 24 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and steal while ex-University of San Carlos ace Victor Rabat added 12 points, seven boards, four assists and four steals.

The Converters fell to 10-5.

Aldene Batino gathered 21 points, 10 rebounds, four steals and three blocks while Archie Batua scored 19 markers. Sherwin Resilla came up with 17 points and 12 rebounds

Teleperformance also thumped the QBE Generals, 97-61, to improve to 12-2.

In the EVO League, the Kyocera Frontiers boosted their record to 12-2 without breaking a sweat following a default win over the Bombardier Grey Wolves.
