Xavier School’s Christian Tyler Tio made 13 points but went just 7-for-12 from the free-throw line …

Xavier School twice came within seven points – 75-68 on Ralphael Luis Romulo’s second triple, and 77-70 on a Tio twinner at the 1:21 mark. But Chua, who was momentarily sidelined by cramps early in the fourth quarter, hit a dagger three with a minute and two ticks remaining, for a 80-70 CKSC advantage …
Gallego and Chua scored 21 and 20 points, respectively, for the Blue Dragons. John Adolph Salinas contributed 10 markers and Toribio had nine. Yu scored all of his five points in the first half …
