MANILA, Philippines – Adamson refused to end its UAAP season 76 women’s basketball campaign on Sunday and stunned topseeded National University, 76-71, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The Lady Falcons drew 21 points from Jinky Balasta, 16 from Analie Tongco, nine points and 12 assists from Joy Cochico as they forged a rubber match for the finals against the Lady Bulldogs, who had a twice-to-beat edge.
