New Era University won their first game without shooting a single basket on a bizarre opening day turn of events. They were supposed to go up against the AMA Computer University Titans in the fourth game of a five game card at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum. But the Titans - in a continuing trend in college basketball games this season - had a uniform malfunction: the whole damn team showed up in their light jerseys when they were supposed to be in their dark jerseys. New Era, in accordance with league rules and regulations, protested even before the game started and their protest was upheld. Coach Adonis Tierra thus got his first win of the season with the Hunters. Coach Jimmy Manansala on the other hand was frustrated and livid.
