Trading pulls off come-from-behind win,
Royal Star upset No. 1 Basecom in semis

AACI Trading overcame a 23-point quarter deficit to stun AACI Transport, 75-71, while Royal Star Trading upset top seed Basecom, 88-76, in the semi-finals of the 2nd Conference Fil-Sino Athletic Club Inter-Company Basketball Tournament Wednesday night at Bacolod Tay Tung High School Po Hang Gym.

Transport was looking forward for a finals slot when it built a commanding 68-47 advantage going to the fourth period. Surprisingly, the AACI Transport fell silent as they can only score three points in the payoff quarter.

Led by Brian Coo, AACI Trading unleashed a barrage of points and showed dominance at both ends of the court. They slowly crept back as Coo also scored 11 points while teammates Rey Pandoro and Marc Jalapa provided help with a combined 14-point production to complete the come-from-behind victory.

Donaire falls to Inoue in WBSS final

Nonito Donaire fell short in his gallant stand against undefeated Japanese Naoya Inoue and lost in the bantamweight final of the World Boxing Super Series in Japan on Thursday night.

Donaire actually had a shot at stunning his unbeaten opponent in front of a sold-out crowd at the Super Arena in Saitama after his left hook opened a cut at Inoue's right eye area in Round 2, slowing down the Japanese in the next two rounds.

However, Inoue came alive again in the middle rounds, and despite Donaire appearing to have bounced back in Rounds 8 and 9, Inoue quickly recovered and delivered a critical body shot to Donaire in Round 11 that sent the Filipino down.
