Von Pambeling took charge in the fourth as Uratex battled back from 77-90 down with 9:21 left to play behind a 24-11 run as the Foam Makers sent the game into overtime at 101. 

Jack Corpuz then stepped up in extension, scoring the go-ahead basket and grabbing a pair of crucial rebounds to anchor Uratex’s victory. Pambeling topscored with 30 points while Corpuz finished with a double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds.
