Sykes ends 15-year title drought

The 15-year sit tight for a title is over for the Sykes Pioneers as they edged the Accenture Sharks, 72-68, in the champ take-all Game Three of the finals of the Elite Classic division of the Tanduay Athletics E-Leagues for Basketball on Saturday, February 9, 2019, at the City Sports Club-Cebu. 

The Pioneers ripped at their way again from a twofold digit shortage and afterward, took control of the diversion in the second half behind previous Cesafi Mythical Five watchman Victor Rabat and ex-University of Cebu go-to person Earl Montilla. 

Rabat completed with 24 and was named Finals MVP while Montilla spared his best for last as he scored 18, pulled down 12 bounce back, dished seven helps and had five takes. 

Rabat sank a long three-pointer to give Sykes a 65-56 lead, with three minutes to go. 

Sykes still needed to delve somewhere down in time to get down to business as the veteran-loaded Accenture declined to withdraw and tied the diversion at 65-all, after consecutive pails by Ryan Veloso and three free tosses by Sherwin Resilla with 1:13 to go. 

Be that as it may, Sykes' commander, Janjan Auditor, who completed with 19, did not flicker and hit a floater in the path with 55 ticks to go. 

At that point, after Giovani Inez airballed a triple from straightaway, Auditor discovered Montilla behind the bend. With time running out on the shotclock, the left-gave watchman hurled up a shot that kissed the glass before going in to raise Sykes' lead to 70-65, with time down to 18.4 seconds. 

Accenture immediately reacted with a three point play by Resilla, who saved money in a stage back midrange jumper while motivating fouled to trim the deficiency to 68-70, 13.5 ticks left. 

The Sharks fouled Joerico Maneja whenever down the floor and he coolly sank two free tosses to convey Sykes' lead to four, 72-68. 

With time not on their side, the Sharks fumbled their last hostile belonging to give Sykes the success and the desired title.
