Like Freddy Kruger, the Olympians came back from the grave that they have fallen to and leveled the count at 69-all. Darryl Mendoza then converted two free throws to give the Olympians a 71-69 lead. On the other end, Ric Gracilla converted a three pointer to give the upperhand once again to the Baycats. The turnaround happened with 53 seconds left, William Vasallo once again nailed a three pointer to put the OLympians in front for good 76-74. That triple broke the back of the Baycats as the Olympians went on to add three more free throws while the Baycats still managed to sink two more field goals. As a result of the pressure defense and physical game, one by one three baycats fdouled out, first was Villareal followed by Pantonio and Alcasabas. Barring any freak incidents, the championship will feature these two teams which we believe will be the most exciting NAASCU finals ever.
