Blackwater took the last quarterfinals spot in the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup after turning back Globalport, 118-107, Sunday at Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo.

The Elite remained at the eighth spot with a 5-5 record to clinch the last playoff seat while the Batang Pier dipped to 3-7.


Blackwater had a 21-point lead, 90-69, at the 3:07 mark of the third quarter after Mac Belo converted on a jumper and that was essentially the Elite’s foundation until the final buzzer.

Henry Walker finished with a five-by-five to lead the Elite with 19 points, 12 rebounds, nine assists, five steals, and five blocks.


Allein Maliksi had 22 points and Roi Sumang put up 21 points to provide the scoring punch for Blackwater.

Murphy Holloway had a 20-20 game with 28 points and 23 rebounds to lead the Batang Pier.
