/ 05:30 AM May 17, 2019

The rebuilding program of the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals just scored a huge win.

EAC stunned National University, 77-73, for its first win in two outings in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup.

Jethro Mendoza led the Generals with 20 points, including eight straight in the dying minutes of the game to tame the Bulldogs.

In a match where both teams swapped leads, EAC finally got over the hump on an 11-2 run for a 58-52 spread going into the final period.

JP Maguliano added 12 for the Bulldogs.

It was a sorry loss for NU, which got 17 points from Dave Ildefonso who scored 17 while Chino Mosqueda and Isaa Gaye added 11 and 10, respectively.

The Bulldogs were slowed by their 39 turnovers. The Generals may not have capitalized on that, scoring just six points of those errors, but National U simply could not find its groove due to the lost possessions.

Meanwhile, Mapua scored its first win in the tournament after crushing Arellano, 85-65, in another game.

A 25-4 start was all the Cardinals needed to snap a three-game slide and hand the Chiefs a second straight defeat.
