Blackwater completes Governors' Cup playoff cast

ANTIPOLO --- (UPDATED) Blackwater just completed the playoff picture in the 2017 Governors' Cup.

The Elite scored a statement 118-107 victory over GlobalPort Sunday at the Ynares Center here, taking the suspense out of which eight teams will make up the postseason in the season-ending joust.

Blackwater, who moved to an even 5-5, eliminated both the Batang Pier (3-7) and the Alaska Aces (3-7).

Behind the firepower of new gunner Allein Maliksi, the Elite pulled away in the middle quarters, taking full advantage of Terrence Romeo's ejection with 5:01 to go in the second period.

The Bro was called for a flagrant foul penalty 2 late in the first half after he threw the basketball at Blackwater import Henry Walker following a turnover.

With that development, the Elite went full steam ahead, taking an 85-64 lead in the third before the Batang Pier charged in the fourth, cutting the deficit down to six, 105-111, late in the game behind import Murphey Holloway and Stanley Pringle.
