    LIPA CITY — MRT-Negros defeated winless Basilan, 25-20, 25-18, 25-20, on Thursday to advance to the battle for fifth place in the Philippine National Volleyball Federation Champions League at the Aquamarine Sports Complex.

    Christian Marcelino scored 15 as the Negrenses bounced back less than 24 hours after being eliminated from semifinal contention by Global Remit.

    Marcelino had 11 kills from 21 attempts and nailed three blocks and an ace.

    Coach Ralph Savellano was pleased to see the MRT-Negros players get back after a disappointing loss to Global Remit.

    “Sabi ko nga sa mga bata na it's a battle of pride na lang. We tried our na makapasok sa semis pero unfortunately hindi ibinigay sa amin,” Savellano said. “All out pa rin kasi it's a great opportunity na makalaro dito sa ganitong klaseng liga. Malaking exposure 'to para sa mga bata.”
