I’m happy with the patience he showed on his offense today.”Ebondo topped Cafe France with 30 points, 13 rebounds, and four blocks, while Paul Desiderio got 17 markers, four assists, and three boards.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES ‘Bad Boys for Life’ debuts so good with box office top spot WATCH: Get to know UST’s Dimdim Pacres in 7 questions “I just shot the ball and I’m happy it went in,” said Onwubere, who poured 24 points on a 5-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc, to go with his three rebounds and three assists.Sidney Onwubere saves the day for Racal at the buzzer! #PBADLeague pic.twitter.com/owv7kBjEs7FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?
