Blackwater Elite to finals in Pacific Caesar Pro Basketball Tournament

Blackwater Elite unleashed its full offensive might from the get-go to crush Pacific Caesar Surabaya, 103-48 on the way to booking a spot in the 50th Pacific Caesar Pro Basketball Tournament Wednesday night in Surabaya, Indonesia.

The Elite showcased their outside shooting by registering 15 triples against the Indonesian club team, which was lethargic on defense the entire match.

The team owned by sportsman-businessman Dioceldo Sy dominated the boards, 57-39, had more assists, 25-12 and steals, 10-4. Blackwater faces BBM Vikings in the finals on Thursday night. The Elite ripped the Warriors, 86-57 during their initial meeting on opening day.

Paul Zamar led the Elite with 18 points, while big man Poy Erram added 14, but had to be helped out of the game after spraining his ankle in the third period.

Renz Palma added 13, while shining on the defensive end after holding 2018 Indonesia Basketball League Best Import David Seagers to a solitary point. Mike DiGregorio was the other double-figure scorer with 12 points.

Pacific Caesar's 6-9 import Joly Rudolphe led his team with 21 points and 10 rebounds in a losing effort.
