LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The ever evolving game of basketball has not only affected the professional leagues but also in the local leagues as Keith Riders shooting guard Sol Antonio connected nine triples to led the Riders to rout the Echameros, 103-65, during the fifth season of the La Liga Buguias last February 26 at the San Jose Gym, here.
In contrast to the old school basketball where bigs used to rule the hardcourt, snipers are taking the limelight in the hardcourt as they become the main offensive arsenal of teams.
Antonio is just happy to oblige to the role in the league, now featuring the Tinda-an Cup this Season. The 16-year old Antonio sank six consecutive shots from the rainbow country in the first quarter alone.
He scored a total of 35 points in leading his team to the lopsided victory over the Echameros.
In the others games, the Fireball melted the Crusher 82-68; Dom scattered the Brotherhood, 92-79, and the Giants defeated Young Guns by default.
