National University scored its second win in three games after overcoming University of Santo Tomas anew, 69-61, in the UAAP Season 81 men’s basketball tournament Sunday at Filoil Flying V Center.

The Bulldogs stayed in the seventh spot in the standings with a 3-6 record and stopped the Growling Tigers’ three-game winning streak with the latter settling for fifth place with a 4-5 slate.

Rookie Dave Ildefonso took over late in the game for NU after his team allowed UST to erase an 11-point lead, 53-42, lead at the end of the third quarter to just one, 59-58, after Zach Huang’s layup midway through the fourth.

Ildefonso scored five points in the Bulldogs’ corresponding 6-0 run for their 65-58 lead with 2:58 remaining in the game.
