Bocaue, Bulacan (CNN Philippines, January 13) — Barangay Ginebra began the 44th season of the PBA on a positive note.

Ginebra took down the TNT KaTropa, 90-79, in the lone opening day game Sunday at the Philippine Arena.

Twin towers Japeth Aguilar and Greg Slaughter showed the way for Ginebra with 21 points and 15 points, respectively.

It was a collective effort for Ginebra as 11 of its players scored at least two points in the contest.

TNT tried to climb back at the final quarter, but Ginebra’s size was just too much to handle in the end.

RR Pogoy registered a double-double for KaTropa with 21 markers and 16 boards.

Ginebra will next face the defending Philippine Cup champions San Miguel Beermen ‪on January 20‬ at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

TNT, meanwhile, battles Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters ‪on January 19‬ at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.
