JC Aloro led Greenhills with 20 points while Mark Kong and John Albert Montesclaros added 18 and 15 points, respectively.

In the main adult-open game, Panagdait rallied from a 10-point deficit in beating Summerville, 79-75.

After trailing for most of the game, Panagdait finally tied the score at 72-all inside the last two-minute mark of the series backed by Dunkin’ Donuts. Panagdait then outscored Summerville, 7-3 the rest of the way for the four-point victory.

Team captain Jan Ponz Geraga lead Panagdait with 25 points while spitfire Jerome Balansag added 16.
