    UNIVERSITY of Santo Tomas made short work of McDavid, 111-90, to get back to its winning ways in the 2019 PBA D-League Monday at JCSGO Gym in Cubao.

    Beninese forward Soulemane Chabi Yo powered the Growling Tigers with 25 points, 15 rebounds and five assists to improve to 5-1 in the Aspirants Group.

    Chabi Yo sparked Ironcon-UST's first half pullaway to take a 59-41 lead and stretched the lead to as high as 27 points, 109-82 late in the game.

    Marvin Lee added 17 points, going 5 for 7 from deep, on top of eight assists, Rhenz Abando chipped in 13 points and Brent Paraiso added 12.

    Despite the easy victory, coach Aldin Ayo remains unsatisfied.

    "Kulang na kulang pa. Hilaw pa. We know it will take some time for the players to adapt to it, pero right now, what we're thinking is how to establish our system," he said.

    Ironcon-UST shot 16-of-45 from threes and thoroughly outrebounded McDavid, 58 to 37.
