DUBAI: RSP bagged the Architects Basketball Association (ABA) Season 6 Intercompany Intercompany Crown after an exciting come-from-behind win over Inhabit, 84-80 in match held last Friday, March 22 at Al Ahli Gym.

The finals match-up went to a down-to-the-wire finish which saw Inhabit controlling most of the game until Finals MVP Son Hizola, who had a monster game (35 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists); and Season MVP Chris Chungtuyco (9 points and 12 rebounds) both led an arduous comeback that saw RSP climbing back from a 15-point deficit and eventually taking the lead for good in the last minutes of the game.

INHABIT 1ST RUNNER UP

Meantime, ETC LIVING held off MARBEYA to the tune of 67-54 to bag the 3rd place finish. Frenchman Nicolas Trabucco made an overall performance of 20 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists to lead his team to victory.

Mythical Team included Reggie De Manuel (Inhabit), Jay Argos Gonzales (Inhabit), Hadji Bustos (ETC), JM Belamia (RSP) and Joseph Doctor (RSP).

ETC LIVING 3RD PLACE

RSP’s Ronald Salcedo, earning Best Coach, led the team with a battle cry of “The time is now” as RSP’s chase for the coveted crown finally paid off after coming up short in the finals last year.

The other teams that participated in the annual event were Zebra, Technal, Esco, Naga, Bluehaus, Cracknell, Amana, Sobha and Maf.

MARBEYA-4TH PLACE

Christos Antoniu of EKA Group, ABA partner sponsor, led the awarding ceremonies with the ABA Committee team Junar Aquino, Bench San Juan, Don Hatamosa, Josh Claveria, Anthony Apolinario, Raymund Cimafranca and Philip Balangatan.

The League was officiated by Jazzville led by Coach Roland Crisostomo and Janzen Kate Nogrado.
