Highlights: Star Hotshots' Impressive Win Against Mighty SMB, Coach Victolero Gives Credit to Team Effort

SMB not so mighty without JunMar Fajardo,  suffers first loss in the 2017 PBA Governors Cup 


Team work and game plan - Coach Chito Victolero

After a well-deserved win, Coach Chito Victolero gives credit to team effort, team work and game plan as his Star Hotshots endured the challenge of the Beermen and won with the score of 104-98.

SMB looked great as usual and was really giving the Hotshots a tough time but Star Hotshots came in prepared and rose to the occasion.  SMB was playing without JunMar who suffered an injury in their last game. In the absence of JunMar, other players did step up. Lassiter led the scoring for the locals with 24 points followed by Arwind Santos who were both shooting at 50%.

Import Mckines also contributed a game high of 27 points while grabbing 22 rebounds.


The young import of Star Malcolm Hill produced 20 points but he was only shooting at 7/18(38%). It was Ian Sangalang who bucketed 18 points (50% FG) and Reavis who scored 13 points on a hundred percent shooting made the difference for Star Hotshots.

This is very important, in our mindset, that we can beat SMB - Coach Victolero
Star Hotshots lorded over team rebound with 49 against 46 of  SMB. Star also moved the ball better having 25 assists compared with 19 of SMB.

Star is still undefeated with 3 wins while SMB dropped their first ever game in the conference.

The scores:

STAR 104 - Hill 20, Sangalang 18, Reavis 13, Brondial 10, Maliksi 8, Barroca 8, Lee 7, Dela Rosa 7, Melton 6, Ramos 5, Jalalon 2, Javier 0, Simon 0.

SAN MIGUEL 98 - McKines 27, Lassiter 24, Santos 19, Cabagnot 12, Ross 10, Rosser 4, Espinas 2, Heruela 0, Tubid 0, Pessumal 0.

Quarters: 24-21, 50-55, 76-77, 104-98.
