By the end of the third period, the victors were already ahead by 14 points, 53-39, a deficit Quezon could not climb back from.

The Lady Aces dominated the boards, 58-31, including a 22-11 advantage in offensive rebounds, resulting in 20 second-chance points.
The game had a slight delay, though, as there was a power outage in the venue. Fortunately, it was immediately resolved.
Chicky Faraon was the lone double-figure scorer for Quezon with 12 points and eight rebounds. She attempted 18 shots.
The Lady SparTANs fell to 1-4, tied with Pacific Water for dead last. At the end of eliminations, the bottom team will be eliminated.
