Simon Encarnacion and Jhon Lituania had eight points apiece as the Junior Green Spikers stayed winless in nine outings.

“Sinabi ko lang na kahit anong mangyari, lamang man ang UST, gawin natin ang trabaho natin sa loob, composure lang saka yung mental toughness natin dapat hindi nawawala,” Adamson University coach Marvin Ramoso said.
