PBA fans of yesteryears were treated to a very exciting replay of probably the most famous rivalry in Philippine Basketball, with Toyota winning 65-61. Terry Saldana was the game’s MVP, with 15 points and 15 rebounds. Toyota led for most of the game, until Crispa’s Atoy Co hit two consecutive shots late in the 4th […]
