ILIGAN City arrested a four-game funk at the expense of skidding Basilan BRT, 72-65, in the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup Mindanao Challenge onTuesday at the Pagadian City Gymnasium in Zamboanga del Sur.

Med Salim buried a three-pointer to cap the Peace Riders’ rally from 12 points down and cut the deficit to 60-61 with eight minutes left in the game.

The Archangels’ Jack Hoyohoy and Kris Daguisonan combined for six straight points which were answered by five quick points from Kim Sallidin and Jorem Morada to stay within striking distance, 65-67, with 2:14 left.

But that was Basilan’s last gallant stand with Hoyohoy and Lester Tamayo putting the finishing touches for Iligan City.

“These past few days my players are really down, but they were motivated in this game,” Archangels head coach Kiko Flores said. “I give all the credit to these kids.”

Hoyohoy led Iligan City with a double-double of 24 points and 13 rebounds.

Herald Benedictos added 14 points, including four triples, and seven rebounds for the victors.

The Archangels upped their win-loss record to 2-5 but still stayed at the bottom while sending the Peace Riders to their fourth-straight defeat for a 3-4 card.

Nikko Panganiban was the lone bright spot for the Peace Riders with 18 points, all from deep, to go with seven rebounds.

Morada and Tristan Albina finished with eight points apiece but both shot just 3-of-11 from the field.
