    DILIMAN College-Gerry's Grill pulled off a monumental 86-85 upset, shocking Marinerong Pilipino Thursday to make a late play to the playoffs in the 2019 PBA D-League at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

    Kevin Gandjeto drained the go-ahead freebie with 12.4 seconds to take the slim one-point lead before the Blue Dragons made life tough for Skippers' Mike Ayonayon and Art Aquino to get their shots up and come away with the victory.

    "Marinero is a star-studded team, but we just stuck to our character. We won because of our defense and our character," said coach Rensy Bajar as Diliman-Gerry's joined Chadao-FEU at fourth place in the Foundation Group with their identical 4-3 cards.

    The Beninese Gandjeto anchored the Blue Dragons with 29 points, 13 rebounds, and four rejections, while Joseph Brutas and Johnnel Bauzon both shot 3-of-4 from deep and finished with 15 points apiece.

    It was a sorry defeat for the rejigged Marinerong Pilipino, which sunk to sixth place in the group and is now tied with Wangs Basketball with their 3-4 standing.

    Ayonayon scored 16 points on a 5-of-21 clip from the field, to go with nine rebounds and six assists, but failed to play the role of the hero for the Skippers late.
