      "[The second quarter] really helped us a lot kasi we didn't play that good in the second half. It was actually the only quarter that we won. That gave us enough cushion for us to play not so good in the second half," said coach Nash Racela.

      UE succumbed to its third straight defeat to drop to 4-8.
