    La Salle and Adamson had confidence-boosting wins heading into the quarterfinals.

    LA Salle Greenhills and Adamson roll into the quarterfinal round of the 9th PCABL (Philippine Chinese Amateur Basketball League) FREEGO Cup with confidence-boosting wins on Wednesday at the Philippine Buddhacare Academy gym in Quezon City.

    The Greenies survived University of Perpetual Help Dalta System Altalettes' fiery rally from an 18-point deficit early in the payoff period to eke out a thrilling 74-73 win and finished tied at second place with Arellano University and Chiang Kai Shek College in Group A with similar 5-3 cards.

    Clutch baskets by Troy Mallilin saved La Salle from an embarrassing defeat following a dominant third quarter that saw the Greenies outscore their rivals 27-7 for a commanding 67-49 lead going into the final frame.

    The Baby Falcons, on the other hand, leaned on the heroics of Forthsky Padrigao, Gerry Abadiano and Jason Celis to score a 92-84 win over Letran and finish second behind reigning UAAP champion National University in Goup B with a 7-1 mark.
