Wang's-Letran scores rousing victory.

WANG'S Basketball-Letran opened its campaign in the 2018 Philippine Basketball Association D-League Aspirants' Cup with a rousing 93-75 rout of AMA Online Education at the Pasig City Sports Center on Tuesday.

Everyone clicked for the Couriers with Bong Quinto spearheading the blowout. He finished with 19 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.

Newcomer Bonbon Batiller added 15 markers, five boards and three dimes in his debut, while starting point guard JP Calvo chipped in 12 points and eight rebounds.

Christian Fajarito also registered 11 points and had nine rebounds, while Alex Mandreza had 10 for Wang's-Letran.

Notwithstanding the lopsided win, Coach Jeff Napa said that he still wants to see more from his Couriers moving forward.

'We're happy with the win, but there are still a lot of tasks ahead of us,' said Napa as he wanted more from his wards after outrebounding the Titans, 57-44.

After a close first quarter, Quinto and Calvo warmed up in the second quarter and led Wang's-Letran's breakaway.

The Couriers opened the second quarter with a 38-26 lead, which grew to as high as 21 points in the payoff period.

Michael Canete topscored AMA with 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Kris Porter had 13.
