Allyn Bulanadi was on fire all game long, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre, and shot San Sebastian College-Recoletos over University of Perpetual Help, 107-90, and into a brand new win run in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament.
Bulanadi was scoring from all over the floor and wound up with a career-high 31 points on top of nine rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and two steals.
With him leading the way, the Golden Stags rampaged all over the Altas and all the way to solo fifth in the standings at 4-3.
It wasn't just the lefty scorer, however, as four different players were already on the board in the Golden Stags' 9-2 start to the game.
From there, Baste would only put pedal to the metal and worked up a lead of as much as 24 early in the fourth.
Bulanadi was a big part of that biggest lead as he dropped 11 of his output in the quarter.
It also didn't help Perps that playmaker Edgar Charcos exited the game due to an apparent foot injury right before halftime.
San Sebastian would do nothing but take advantage, with both and Alvin Capobres and RK Ilagan also catching fire after the first quarter.
Capobres wound up with 18 points, five rebounds, and three assists while Ilagan also added 17 markers, five boards, and four dimes.
For Perpetual, rookie Jeff Egan topped the scoring column with 20 points while Kim Aruin and Ben Adamos contributed 14 markers apiece as well as a combined 20 rebounds. Unable to keep up with their opponents' high-octane attack, however, they finish the first round at 3-6.
SAN SEBASTIAN 107 - Bulanadi 31, Capobres 18, Ilagan 17, Calma 14, Calahat 7, Desoyo 6, Dela Cruz 5, Sumoda 4, Villapando 3, Cosari 2, Altamirano 0, Isidro 0, Tero 0.
PERPETUAL 90 - Egan 20, Aurin 14, Adamos 14, Razon 11, Peralta 10, Charcos 10, Lucero 5, Tamayo 3, Martel 2, Sese 1, Cuevas 0, Barasi 0.
QUARTER SCORES: 25-19, 54-43, 82-66, 107-90.
