(The Philippine Star) - March 10, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Eugene Tan put on a vintage performance, knocking in a huge three-point shot in the crunch to help lift Armed Forces of the Philippines to a pulsating 76-73 win over reigning titlist Senate in Game 1 of their title series in the seventh UNTV Cup held last weekend at the Pasig City Sports Center.

 Tan highlighted AFP’s remarkable comeback with a three that put the AFP Cavaliers on top for the first time, 74-73, with one minute, 27 seconds left in the game.

AFP can clinch its third title in the annual event for public servants and organized by UNTV president and CEO Daniel Razon with another win tomorrow at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

If that happens, the chosen charity of the Cavaliers will get a tax-free P4 million prize while the foundation picked by the Defenders get P2 million.

Meantime, National Housing Authority settled for third with a 73-70 win over PNP.

The NHA Providend Funds, chosen charity of the Builders, get P1 million while PNP’s Public Assistance for Rescue, Disaster and Support Services (PARDSS) Foundation International, Inc. got P500,000.
