FilOil: Saint Benilde d. EAC, 71-46

10th FilOil Flying V Premier Cup     SAN JUAN City – College of Saint Benilde finally ended its four-game losing slump by blasting Emilio Aguinaldo College, 71-46, at the resumption of play at the 2016 FilOil Flying V Premier Cup at the San Juan Arena Thursday (May 26).  Both teams are now tied at the bottom of Group A with similar 1-4 win-loss records.

“We are a young team composed mostly of rookies and sophomores,” said Coach Gabby Velasco.  The Blazers’ cause though was bolstered by the return of veteran forward Alfonso Saavedra who immediately made an impact with eight and six rebounds points off the bench.

Saavedra had to sit out the first four games as he gave priority to his academics.  Sophomore big men Christian Fajarito and Edward Dixon paced the Blazers with 12 points each.

Hamadou Laminou led EAC with 16 points and 12 rebounds while Jervin Guzman added 13 points.  Overall, the Generals shot 14 out of 54 from the field and turned over the ball 21 times.
