Castillo also grabbed the Best Player of the Game plum for the very first time. Leading by 11 points with still 5 minutes remaining in the 4th Quarter, SCT FACULTY TEAM suddenly collapsed in a 12-4 scoring run by SCT Batch 89, giving the 89ers a come-from-behind victory.
Castillo was ably supported by Jonard “The Gigil Man” De Leon with 13 points and Angelo Yongzon with 11 points. SCT Faculty Team was carried anew by the fast and the furious tandem of Robert “The Slasher” Perpetua with 17 points and Arlon Oco with 16.

It was an unfortunate night for the 91 Boys as they were trounced by SCT Batch 90 with a 10-0 blast in the first minutes of the game and they scored only 4 points in the first quarter, followed by only 8 points in the second quarter for a 30-12 score in the first half.
