/ 06:41 AM July 16, 2013

THE JOSE RIZAL University (JRU) Heavy Bombers leaned on the steady hands of Phillip Paniamogan, Mike Mabulac and Marco Balagtas to turn back the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals, 85-79, in the 89th NCAA men’s basketball tournament yesterday at the Arena in San Juan City.

JRU was ahead by just four, 63-59, going into the final canto when Balagtas made his fourth three-pointer of the game that was followed by back-to-back layups by Paniamogan that established a 75-63 lead.
