Adamson is now tied for fourth with Far Eastern University with an even win-loss record of 4-4 and remained in the hunt for a semifinal spot.
"Buti maganda start ng second round di gaanong madami ang unforced errors namin," said adamson coach Sherwin Meneses.
"Ang mindset namin ay makapasok kami sa Final Four," he added.
"Sabi ko sa kanila hindi tayo makakapasok sa Final Four kung hindi tayo prepared sa every game natin, pero kung prepared ka mamanalo ka (sa game), papasok ka (sa Final Four)."
Angeli Araneta and Katherine Bersola each had seven points for UP, which dropped to 1-8.
