CIGNAL-ATENEO vented its ire on AMA Online Education, 111-81, on Thursday in the 2019 PBA D-League at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
Ivorian big man Ange Kouame was back with a vengeance, dropping 22 points, 15 rebounds and four blocks for the Blue Eagles after missing their last game against UST.
Thirdy Ravena also notched his first win in the PBA D-League with his 14 points, eight assists, and four rebounds, all of which he recorded in three quarters before leaving the game to catch his afternoon class.
Despite his abrupt exit, Cignal-Ateneo had enough weapons to cruise to the easy victory as it shot 16-of-43 from downtown.
The Blue Eagles made nine unanswered points right off the bat, went on to take a 27-9 lead in the first quarter and stretched it to 33 in the second half.

William Navarro had 14 points, nine rebounds and five assists, and Mike Nieto collared a double-double of his own with 10 points and 12 rebounds for Cignal-Ateneo.
The Blue Eagles bounced back from their 112-98 defeat to the Growling Tigers last week to improve to a 3-1 win-loss record in the Aspirants Group.
"I just feel like we were a little bit disprestecful to ourselves, to our opponents, and to the game, but more to ourselves the last time out. We have to come out and do your best every game and today, we were much better," said coach Tab Baldwin.
Meanwhile, the Titans absorbed their third straight defeat to fall to 1-3.
Joshua Munzon notched 41 points, nine rebounds and two assists, but his second 40-point game of the season ended in a defeat for AMA.
