It was a sweet victory for EAC with several players stepping up.

Nat Cosejo had 14 points, 14 boards, and four assists, and Ralph Bajon stepped up with 12 points and three rebounds.
Mac Balowa also saved the day for EAC, nailing a trey with 3.8 seconds left in regulation to make it 54-all. He finished with 12 points, eight boards, and three assists in the rare victory.
"Very proud," said coach Oliver Bunyi. "Kaya nga sabi ko kung nakuha lang namin yung ganitong character from the start, baka iba ang nangyari. But then again, there’s this still the future for them to play basketball and sana itong last game na ito, madala nila. On how to handle the pressure, how to keep composure, madala nila for the next season."

Axel Doromal had a career night with 25 points, six rebounds, and three assists in the defeat.
