Still eyeing for the final slot in the Final Four, the squad from Recto made a good defensive run in the 1st quarter and relatively came close against the squad from San Marcelino, even with an early 2 personal fouls from Paul Lee and 3 turnovers from Ken Acibar, they were still able to end the 1st quarter 16-15.

In the second quarter, the Adamson Soaring Falcons slowly regaining their composure and at 6:54 minutes remaining a Lester Alvarez field goal gives the AdU Falcons a 10 points advantage 28-10. But, the lads of Coach Lawrence Chongson made the necessary adjustment when James Martinez and JM Noble made a 7-0 run to cut down the lead to only 3 points. A follow-up plays from Ken Acibar and Paul Lee snatch back the lead 1:41 remaining. Before ending the 1st half, rookie guard Lord Casajeros scored 5 straight points to go back at the locker room with 36-30 advantage over the AdU Soaring Falcons.

The start of the 3rd quarter went to be an aggressive AdU Falcons when Mike Galinato, Jan Colina scored inside the shaded lane, aside with some fastbreak from Alex Nuyles and Chris Camson that just limit the UE Red Warriors to only 13 points to take back the lead on to end the 3rd quarter, 53-49.

In the final canto, the UE Red Warriors gives the Adu Soaring a taste of their own medicine when they limit them to score only 10 points.

Keep in mind the difference between a winner's and a loser's mentality. Winners focus on winning big—not just how to win, but how to win big. Losers, however, don't focus on losing; they just focus on getting by!


Each Warrior wants to leave the mark of his will, his signature, on important acts he touches. This is not the voice of ego but of the human spirit, raising up and declaring that it has something to contribute to the solution of the hardest problems, no matter how vexing!
