    Paolo Javillonar added 17 points and nine boards, as Brent Paraiso had 12 points, five rebounds, and four assists as Wangs-Letran rose to a 2-0 card despite committing 19 turnovers in the game.

    "Kinausap lang namin yung players to respect our opponents," said assistant coach Rensy Bajar as he and Raymund Tiongco took over in the absence of head coach Bonnie Tan.

    "Down the stretch, medyo masyadong malambot yung depensa namin kaya last four minutes, nag-review lang yung mga bata na kailangan naming manalo at pinakita nila yung puso nila."
