Seven-foot-1 Kai Sotto had a quiet outing, scoring 11 points – all in the second half – while grabbing eight rebounds for Ateneo just a week after 24-point, 12-board and 7-block effort in an 82-64 win against Adamson.
Credo finished with 18 points, Ildefonso had a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds while Belangal scored 12.
