    GELO Alolino converted the game-winning field goal with 4.6 seconds left as Tanduay edged AMA Online Educatio, 86-84, on Thursday in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup at the JCSGO gym.

    Alolino scored 20 points, his late basket giving the Rhum Masters a two-point gap. Rashawn McCarthy missed a potential game-winning triple and Tanduay finished the elimination round with an 8-4 win-loss slate.

    Tanduay coach Lawrence Chongson said the win was a test for the Rhum Masters, who will have to win twice against a higher-seeded oppponent in the playoffs.

    “Maganda rin silang barometer sa game na ‘to,” said Chongson. “They gave us a run for our money pero nag-hold pa rin ‘yung character ng team.”

    James Martinez, who two days later scored a league record 58 points against Topstar on Tuesday, and McCarthy had 32 points apiece for AMA.

    The scores:

    Tanduay 86 — Alolino 20, Celda 17, Mendoza 10, Lingganay 9, Javillonar 8, Javelona 6, Santos 4, Acuna 3, Belencion 3, Ferrer 3, Stevens 2, Gotladera 1, Eguilos 0.

    AMA 84 — Martinez 32, McCarthy 32, Taganas 6, Asuncion 5, Arambulo 3, Belleza 2, Jo. Montemayor 2, Ortega 2, Bragais 0, Calma 0, Macaranas 0, Jordan 0.

    Quarters: 23-21, 42-35, 61-68, 86-84.
