MANILA, Philippines---Moala Tautuaa showed his mettle when he came up big for NorthPort's 95-90 win against Poy Erram and NLEX in the PBA Philippine Cup.

The double-double, however, wasn't enough for Tautuaa's coach Pido Jarencio who wanted to see more from his fun-loving big man. «The bigs didn't have that much production, actually Mo was able to deliver in the fourth quarter,» said Jarencio in Filipino.
