In an underwhelming finale to the Slam Dunk competition of the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup All-Star event, Adamson University’s AP Manlapaz was the only one to make a dunk to win the Slam Dunk competition.
The 6-foot-4 forward accumulated 45 points with a double pump, reverse slam to win the competition.
And yes, he was the only one to make a dunk in the finals, since UST’s Rhenz Abando and NU’s Adam Faye failed to connect on their attempts.
Also competing in the event were CEU’s Joshua Abastillas, UP’s Joe Gomez de Liano, Letran’s Neil Guarino, and Lyceum’s Fritz Saladaga.
Earlier in the day, Kenneth Tuffin bested UP’s Pio Longa and NU’s Migs Oczon to win the three-point shootout.
Tuffin finished with 20 points, while Longa and Oczon had 16 and 15 respectively, to claim the crown.
Mapua’s JP Nieles, Letran’s Allen Mina, EAC’s Jethro Mendoza, UST’s Sherwin Concepcion, and CEU’s Rich Guinitaran completed the final eight.
