Sanchez 77, ND 32

The Sanchez Sharks ended the tournament run for the ND Royals behind a 19-point game from Harold Gaerlan. The Sharks surmounted a double-digit lead in the opening quarter and never looked back as they secured their spot as three-seed in Pool B and will play their final game against Pool A’s three-seeded GW Geckos.

FD 65, JFK 55

A score deadlocked at 28 at the half turned into the Friars favor quickly in the 3rd quarter. A six point quarter from Friars leading scorer Tony Quinene, who finished with 16, had the Friars up 51-36 heading into the final stretch.

Islander Jerry Ngireremang scored 25 points in the loss, but helped rally the Islanders back after going on an 8-0 on his lonesome, that included to bombs from down town, 57-51 with under two minutes left. The Friars kept attacking the paint and sealed the game from the free throw line down the stretch to secure the win.
