    FORMER pros Lester Alvarez and Jopher Custodio led the way as Euro Med beat Foton, 77-73, in the opener of the quarterfinals of the PCBL Chairman’s Cup on Friday at the Marikina Sports Center.

    Biyaheng SCTEX edged an import-less Sta. Lucia Realty, 77-72, in overtime in the other game.

    Alvarez, a former player for San Mig Coffee, scored back-to-back baskets, giving Euro-Med a 75-71 lead with 1:16 left.

    Levi Hernandez scored with 21 seconds left then Cedrick Ablaza was forced to give up a foul on Custodio.
