Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 11) — The Adamson Soaring Falcons took down the University of the East (UE) Red Warriors, 91-80, Wednesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

This is the Soaring Falcons' second consecutive win in the tournament.

Jerrick Ahanmisi finally regained his scoring touch for Adamson as he dropped 28 points, including seven triples.

The Red Warriors tried to crawl back as they trimmed the 15-point deficit to seven points with a little over three minutes left in the final quarter.

The Soaring Falcons responded with huge buckets from their old reliables to avoid any complications in the end.

Jerom Lastimosa and Val Chauca chipped in 13 points and 11 points for Adamson, respectively.

Rey Suerte led the attack for UE with 20 points, seven rebounds, and six assists. They remained winless after three outings.
