    CENTRO Escolar University dealt Nailtalk-Savio a 61-point drubbing, 107-46, in the 2019 PBA D-League Foundation Cup on Thursday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

    The Scorpions erupted for 32 points in the opening frame while limiting the Unicorns to just two points, the lowest output in a quarter in the developmental league's history.

    Nailtalk-Savio's first quarter dry spell dislodged Gamboa Coffee from its throne of infamy as the Coffee Lovers scored only three points in the third quarter of its 107-60 defeat to Racal on July 10, 2017 in that season's Foundation Cup.

    CEU cruised to its second win in as many games.

    "I was worried that my players might take this game for granted dahil blowout yung first game ni Nailtalk. But they came to play and did not take it for granted," said coach Derrick Pumaren.

    Rich Guinitaran paced the Scorpions with 19 points and six rebounds.
