Allyn Bulanadi led the squad in scoring with 15 markers and three boards while Samboy de Leon shot 3-of-4 from threes to garner 14.
“Mas prepared kami ngayon,” remarked coach Stevenson Tiu. “Yun ang sabi ko sa mga bata, na we try to make a statement in this game para yung momentum, madala namin sa mga susunod naming laro.”
