MANILA—Bulacan completed a successful comeback in the MPBL after scoring a 75-73 home win against Sarangani on Monday night at the Star Arena in Baliwag.

Levi Dela Cruz scored the game-winner as the Kuyas, now calling the said city home, won't be denied of a victory in their first game back after taking a leave of absence last season.

Dela Cruz stole the ball from Jeff Comia and drove all the way to the basket for a go-ahead layup with 12.7 seconds left.

Alex Desoyo tried to send the game to overtime, but he missed his equalizer as time ran out on the Marlins.

Jerick Nacpil led Bulacan with 23 points on 10-of-15 field goals, five rebounds, and one assist, while Dela Cruz, Daniel De Guzman, and JR Raflores each added eight markers for Bulacan.

Jordan Sta. Ana flirted with a triple-double after tallying 12 points, 10 assists, and nine rebounds with one steal, and one block for Sarangani.

Comia, Danny Marilao, and Nemesis Dela Cruz each had 11 markers with Marilao grabbing 12 boards for his own double-double.
