Elmer Cahabug’s son leads Batch 2005 victory in SHAABAA Summer League
CEBU CITY, Philippines – Elddie Cabahug exploded for 35 points to lift Batch 2005 over 2013, 55-50, in the 2019 SHAABAA Summer League Bad Boys Wingz Cup played on Friday, April 26, at the Magis Eagles Arena.
The son of former PBA hotshot, Elmer Cabahug, carried the offensive load for 2005 while also adding nine rebounds across his name to push his team to the victory.
In other games, Joevince Canizares put up another sensational performance of 30 points and 19 rebounds to help 2000 escape 2009, 68-66.
Canizares’ stellar outing would have been for naught had it not been for the numerous miscues of 2009 during the game’s waning moments.
Down two, 66-68, 2009 could have sent the game to overtime or even win it outright but Ian Roma missed two free-throws with 15 seconds remaining. 2009 still got the ball back after Aljun Villarias grabbed the offensive rebound.
Niel Benedicto then tried to win the game with a three-pointer but missed, to hand the win to 2000. And finally, 2003-Cebu Landmasters defeated 2008, 75-63.
Moncrief Rogado and Justin Huang ran roughshod over the defense of 2008 as they each had monster double-doubles.
Rogado, who plays for Batangas in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League, put up 23 points and 23 rebounds to go with eight assists while Huang added 21 points and 17 boards./dcb
