ARELLANO got back on track after downing lowly Emilio Aguinaldo College, 88-82, on Monday in the NCAA Season 92 basketball at Filoil Flying V Centre.

Big man Lervin Flores had 20 points and 15 rebounds, while Jio Jalalon had 15 points, 12 assists and three steals as the Chiefs scored their fourth victory in six outings.

It was a huge win for the Chiefs, who bowed to San Beda just four days ago.

“It’s good to be back in the winning column, at least you could say we were able to move on,” Arellano head coach Jerry Codinera said.

The Chiefs trailed by four, 66-62, entering the fourth quarter. A Zach Nicholls layup started a 10-2 run as Arellano took control.

Hamadou Laminou led EAC with 23 points and eight boards, while Jorem Morada added 17 points.

Sidney Onwubere added 16 points and 14 rebounds for the Generals, who absorbed their fifth loss in six games.
