CamSur and Iriga City clinched a spot in the quarterfinals of the National Basketball League (NBL) Season 2 after winning over separate foes last Saturday at the Botolan Peoples Plaza in Botolan, Zambales.

The Express defeated the Imus Bandila, 81-76, and the Oragons won over the Zambales Converge Fiber X Men, 73-71, in their knockout matches to seal a place in the quarterfinal round to be played on Sunday at the Hagonoy Sports Complex in Taguig City.
