    Powell scored 33 points to lead the Dragons to a 4-0 record.

    Among the conditions set for the guest team was that only one of its imports will be fielded and an agreement was reached for the Dragons to have Powell play the first four games of the conference before being replaced by Andrew Nicholson for the next four. Bay Area then decides which import to field for the remainder of the conference.

    The Dragons led by 22 but Converge rallied to within four points in the two minutes before the guest team regained control.

    Quincy Miller led all scorers, delivering 38 points on top of four rebounds for Converge, which lost for the second straight game for a 1-2 record.

    Johnny O’Bryant came up with 31 points and 11 rebounds as the Bolts got a win after starting the tournament with two losses.

    Allein Maliksi had 18 points, while Bong Quinto and Aaron Black each scored 17 for Meralco, which is without Chris Newsome, out for up to a month due to a strained hamstring.

    Terrafirma remained winless in four games even as Lester Prosper delivered another big performance with 35 poitns and 18 rebounds.

    The Dyip have lost 20 consecutive games dating to the Philippine Cup bubble in Bacolor, Pampanga.
