Leading the crushing for the Peace Riders was Michael Mabulac with a double-double of 15 points and 11 rebounds, all in just 18 minutes of play. He was also a team-best plus-23.

Fielding 13 players right in the first half, 12 of them scored led by Michael Mabulac’s 10 as Basilan took a 54-37 lead at the break.

The Peace Riders would stretch the lead to 29 at the end of the third frame with tough defense, limiting the Explorers to just eight while converting 20, 74-45.
