ANTIPOLO--GlobalPort banked on a huge third quarter and some key baskets down the stretch to hand Bong Ramos a loss in his PBA comeback, a 117-106 rout of Blackwater at the Ynares Center on Wednesday night in the Commissioner's Cup.

The Batang Pier outscored the Elite, 35-17, in the third period to take a 97-81 advantage entering the fourth.

Blackwater, however, put up a fight in the final frame, drawing to within three, 100-103, only for GlobalPort to score huge baskets to help seal the win.

Sean Anthony flirted with a triple-double, tallying 29 points, 13 rebounds, and eight assists with three steals.

Malcolm White bucked foul trouble and added 28 markers, eight boards, one block, and one steal.

Stanley Pringle chipped in 26 points, six caroms, seven dimes, and one swipe.

Jarrid Famous dropped 41 points and 22 rebounds with one assist and two steals, but he also turned the ball over eight times as Blackwater dropped to 0-4.
