The Tamaraws thus won their second straight game, and improved to 3-2 to rise to solo fourth in the league standings.

The Bulldogs, meanwhile, suffered their second straight loss to drop to 2-3.

"It was a hard-fought win," said FEU coach Olsen Racela. "Mabibigat 'yung mga kalaban namin (this week), so we needed this win badly. Compared to our past games, I think we played more consistently this game."
