    Rhanz Abando and Renzo Subido had 19 points apiece as UST stole the win and stayed unbeaten in the Aspirants Group at 2-0.

    "Our composure was tested. For sure natuto kami rito. Halos ratratan eh, so every time we experience that, mate-test yung decision making ng mga players," said coach Aldin Ayo.

    UST survived the torrid shooting of Joshua Munzon, who had 46 points, the second-most points in PBA D-League history. He also had 11 rebounds, six steals, and four assists.
