Manaloto, who only scored four points in regulation, found his mark in the extra period as he delivered six points, including the game-winning free throw.

He led the balanced offensive of MRT in the extra period to counter the three triples unleashed by Robbie Jalando-on of Orix.

Sun Cell hopes to tie
with Toyota at No. 1

Sun Cellular might just pull off another surprise as it clashes against tournament leader Toyota-Bacolod tonight in the first game of the PROBAC/LNA7 Invitational Basketball Tournament at the West Negros University Gym in Bacolod City.

With both teams playing its last game in the eliminations, a win by Sun will allow the squad to share the No. 1 spot with Toyota as it will clinch its seventh win in the tournament with two losses.

Toyota, which absorbed its first defeat at the hands of cellar dweller the Bad Boys, notched its seventh victory Friday night by default after TJ Construction failed to show-up.
