All bad things must come to an end.
Blackwater did just that as it ended a woeful 29-game losing streak with a pulsating 101-100 victory against league leader Magnolia at that in the PBA Governors’ Cup on Wednesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Import Shawn Glover scored 33 points and hauled nine rebounds as the Bossing, who have not tasted a victory in 508 days, bid the conference goodbye with a first win.
The last time Blackwater won was on October 17, 2020, when they hammered a 98-88 victory against NLEX in that year’s Philippine Cup.
Rey Suerte scored 16 points to go with his five boards, while Andre Paras chipped in 12 markers as Blackwater ended the season with a morale-boosting win.
The game winning plays, however, came from Barkley Ebona, who translated a steal into a go-ahead layup for a 101-100 count, before Suerte sealed the win with a block on Jackson Corpuz.
Meanwhile, the TNT Tropang Giga blasted Terrafirma Dyip, 127-107, to move closer to a twice-to-beat incentive.
