TIAONG—Encho Serrano made an impression in his PSL debut as he led Siomai King to a 119-76 romp against Antipolo at the start of the D2 Super Cup on Friday night at the Tiaong Convention Center.

Serrano, the main subject of a free-agency battle between Phoenix and Pampanga, took flight in his first taste of action in the fourth professional league he has played in, tallying 19 points in just 15 and a half minutes of play even as the star-studded squad made quick work of Antipolo's young core.

Serrano also chipped in three rebounds and three assists, while Leo Najorda, Emman Ojuola, and Kurt Lojera each added 13 points with Ojoula also grabbing 12 rebounds for Siomai King.

Louie Datario also tallied 19 markers with three boards, two dimes, and one steal for Antipolo.
