"Winston did a lot for us today. He created a lot and he was attacking the UST defense,” said coach Derrick Pumaren.

Later, streaking University of the East claimed another victim in University of Perpetual Help System Dalta with a close 79-74 win.

Kyle Paranada put up 23 points, three boards, three assists and two steals for the Red Warriors, who climbed to No. 5 spot in Group A with a 4-4 card.
