Koror, Palau – Championship games were supposed to be a close fight.
With the top two teams battling for the coveted crown, the games are expected to be exciting and thrilling, but apparently not in this series.
The Spoilers showed the defending champion Western Union team that they were clearly the better team and are head and shoulders above the rest.
During the past two seasons, Western Union was the best and were hailed back-to-back champs.
However, the moment Team Spoilers decided to re-join the FBA League, there was no denying that the Spoilers came back to bring back their glory days.
In their Best-of-3 series format, the Spoilers dominated Western Union winning Game 1, 101-68 and then completed the series sweep to clinch the title by routing Western Union 117-93 in Game 2.
Indeed a new era has just began.
Aries Echanova was named Rookie of the Year and season MVP, Michael Bombita won Finals MVP honors and was named Best Forward, while Coco Gonzales was awarded the sportsmanship award and Best Guard.
All three players were also named to the Mythical Team together with Western Union’s Erwin Senadre and Emerson Patenia.
