News: Misamis Oriental Meteors Wrest ASEAN Basketball Championship Title

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY - Philippines’ Misamis Oriental Meteors wrested the championship title at the expense of the host team Guangxi China, 83-75, in the 2nd China-Asean Basketball Tournament ultimate match-up that was held in Pingguo County, Guangxi, China last October 24, 2009.

Misamis Oriental Governor Oscar S. Moreno’s Meteors, the Liga Pilipinas’ second conference champion, earned its way to the top spot in Group A averaging 92.5 points per game after four outings.

The Meteors had a blowout victory against Malaysia, 105-65 in the opening match last October 19 and subsequently charred three other national teams, that of Vietnam, 88-56, Hongkong, 82-68 and arranged for a semi-final encounter against Singapore.

Under the mentorship of veteran head coach Jun Noel, Meteors’ top-gunner Patrick Cabahug conspired with power forward Erian Daja and pointguard Khael Misa for a 33-point drubbing of Singapore (2-1), 95-62.

In Group B, China’s Guanxi team also swept all its assignments; dumped Singapore in the opener, 84-51, crushed Myanmar, 81-45, and toyed with Laos, 104-73. Thus, the host team had to face China’s other team, Hongkong (2-1) in a semi-final game, and subsequently outscored the former British colony, 80-73.

After losing to the Philippines’ MisOr Meteors, Guangxi settled for the second place while Hongkong salvaged the third spot. Singapore was relegated to fourth, followed by Malaysia, Vietnam, Myanmar and Laos.

“Am so happy with the performance of our team! Congratulations to coach Jun Noel and to all team members” said Governor Moreno during his weekly public affairs television program, Ang Lalawigan Karon (The Province Now).

The 2nd China-Asean Basketball Tournament was organized by the Basketball Administrative Center of the General Sports Administration of China, co-organized by the Administration of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and the People’s Government of Balse City, and the support of the People’s Government of Pingguo County, Guangxi Ball Games Development Center, and Guangxi Basketball Association.
