Cassandra Camacho scored 11 points to lead Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan to a 46-35 victory versus Docomo Rollers in the women’s division game in the 2018 MIBF Island-wide Basketball League last Wednesday at the Gilbert C. Ada Gymnasium.

Madi Alegre and Irish Pagarao added 8 markers each to back up Camacho and deny the Docomo Rollers’ bid to enter the win column.

With Fiesta Resort running a balance offense, it led at the end of each quarter to hand Docomo Rollers its fifth straight loss.

In the other women’s division match this week, the Ol’Aces avenged their first round defeat to the Lady Ol’Aces after the former earned a 54-47 victory in last Monday’s duel.

Annalei finished with 20 points, while her sister Eleina chipped in 16 markers. Alliyah Fernandez made the other field goal of the Ol’Aces in the final canto to end up with 10 points.

Taz Deleon Guerrero paced the Lady Ol’Aces with her 16 points.

Meanwhile, the Genesis All-Stars and Casino won their respective matches in the men’s division.

The Genesis All-Stars routed the Chalan Kanoa Ballers last Monday, 97-65, while Casino downed the Saints last Wednesday, 89-78.

A 35-10 scoring surge in the first quarter sealed the deal for the Genesis All-Stars. Ken Viray led the squad’s jackrabbit start after firing 14 points in the opening canto.

Meanwhile, Casino played better in the second half to steal the win from the Saints.

Sonny Marines dropped 15 of his 19 points in the last 20 minutes of play to hand Casino the double-digit win.
