    Manzano's eight points keyed Adamson's 25-point finishing kick as it fended off a third quarter charge after Mapua closed in within one, 56-55, courtesy of a Marc Cuenco layup at the 1:22 mark of the canto.

    Jerom Lastimosa also helped in that late pullaway, finsihing with 15 points, three assists, and two boards, while Ray Allen Torres had 11 points, five rebounds, and three assists.

    AP Manlapaz also made his triumphant return from an ACL injury delivering eight points, two rebounds, and two assists for the Falcons.


      "It's a slow progress and the challenge for the team is how to fasttrack yung improvement namin," said coach Nash Racela. "Hindi madali especially we rotate a lot of players pero small progress is still progress as long as we see them improve day-to-day."


      Mapua sunk to 0-4 with some of its key guys, including head coach Randy Alcantara and deputy Yong Garcia, still absent for the game.
