It wasn’t an easy victory for San Sebastian as the Wildcats kept within striking distance all game long with 11 deadlocks and nine lead changes.

“We haven’t seen them play. They gave us a good fight. It was a bit rough but we appreciate winning this game,” said head coach Topex Robinson.

Perez, who is once again expected to be the Stags’ main man, admitted that HTC was a tough match up for them.

“It was hard, but we adjusted. We just leaned on our defense,” he said in Filipino in the post-game presser.

Robinson admitted that his rotations were still a work in progress with seven rookies adjusting to the system and the brand of play in the collegiate division.

“We might be struggling right now but were a ‘big picture thinker.’ We want to expose our rookies to the action here in the pre-season.”

The Stags so far are at 2-2 in group C while the Wildcats are winless at 0-2.

Chris Masglang had a monster showing with 30 points, Meyland Landicho had 18 points, Aldrin Yusop had 13 while Delmar Mahaling had 13 and 18 rebounds for HTC in a losing effort.
