BINAN--Blackwater made one huge push to a twice-to-beat advantage in the PBA Governors' Cup quarterfinals after bludgeoning Columbian, 120-99, at the Alonte Sports Arena on Saturday night.

The Elite quickly opened a double-digit lead against the Dyip after the first quarter and would even stretch it to 31 points before settling for a 21-point winning margin.

Henry Walker put up a perfect game from the field, making all of his nine shots and ending up with 26 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals, and one block to lead Blackwater, which tied Alaska and Phoenix for third to fifth places at 7-3. Only the top four teams after the eliminations will enter the next round with the aforementioned bonus.

Mac Belo added 16 markers on 6-of-10 shooting, while Paul Zamar went 5-of-7 from the field for 13 of his own.

Akeem Wright posted 28 points, 10 boards, four dimes, one steal, and one block for Columbian, which ended its campaign with a 1-10 record.
