Far Eastern University climbed out of .500 in the standings of the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament with a 66-63 triumph over UAAP rival Adamson University, Monday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

Cameroonian big man Patrick Tchuente fueled the fire with 14 points while Ken Tuffin and Hubert Cani chimed in 12 and 11 markers, respectively, for the Tamaraws who got a third consecutive victory following back-to-back losses to begin the preseason.

That was more than enough to overcome an off game from rising star L-Jay Gonzales who only had two points from his name in this one.

For the Soaring Falcons, Congolese bruiser Lenda Douanga topped the scoring column with 17 points. With Jerrick Ahanmisi misfiring, however, they fell for the fourth time in five games.

Meanwhile, Lyceum of the Philippines University unleashed its new secret weapon on an unsuspecting Jose Rizal University for an 86-79 decision.

Transferee Jayson David made his presence felt with 16 points while Jaycee Marcelino brought the backup with 13 markers of his own as the Pirates sailed to a 5-1 record.

In other results, Emilio Aguinaldo College came out on top of College of St. Benilde, 78-69, for its second win in seven starts.

With their respective losses, the Blazers fell to 1-4 and the Heavy Bombers fell to 1-5.
