    EMILIO Aguinaldo College fended off a late challenge from National University to come away with a 77-73 victory on Thursday in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup in San Juan.

    Jethro Mendoza led the Generals with 20 points and five rebounds, as JP Maguliano added 12 points and five boards.

    Marwin Taywan and Renzo Tampoc both had eight points in the Generals’ first victory in the summer tournament.

    EAC caught NU offguard in the second quarter, pouring 26 points in the frame to grab a 41-31 halftime lead and rode that wave to escape with the four-point decision.

    The Generals' triumph also handed coach Oliver Bunyi his first win since replacing Ariel Sison at the helm.

    Dave Ildefonso scored 17 points, six rebounds and four assists for NU, which dropped to a 1-2 card in Group B.

    The scores:

    EAC 77 - Mendoza 20, Maguliano 12, Taywan 8, Tampoc 8, Martin 7, Estacio 6, Carlos 5, De Guzman 4, Gonzales 3, Luciano 2, Gurtiza 2, Boffa 0, Dayrit 0, Cadua 0.
