Meralco was ahead by as many as 39, 95-56, en route to its 1st of the tournament.

"That was exactly the type of start we were hoping for going into the conference," Meralco coach Norman Black said.

"We played pretty well in our last 2 exhibition games against Alaska and Globalport and we're hoping we could carry that over to our game against Blackwater.

"We came out very strong defensively, we were able to pick up a lot of stops in the first quarter."
