The Tiger Sands then scored a swift 21-12, 21-9 win over Adamson’s Francis Casas and Evander Novillo to secure their place in the Final Four with a 5-0 slate.

Ateneo’s Jian Salarzon and Amil Pacinio downed University of the Philippines’ Dan Nicolas and Erl Eusebio, 21-17, 21-8, for a 3-1 record in third place.
