    FEU blew San Sebastian away with a stunning 19-1 start, extending that spread to 24 points, 29-5, before the gritty San Sebastian crew buckled down in the second half.

    Romel Calahat brought the Golden Stags to within three, 58-55, in the final 53 seconds, but Royce Alforque and James Tempra were there to put the final nail in the coffin.

    "We just have to remind them of the fundamientals. Our team, especially our guards, like to gamble so we have to play disciplined," said deputy coach Eric Gonzales who called the shots in lieu of head coach Olsen Racela.
