TerraFirma, however, wouldn’t score again as it went on to miss its last seven attempts, including a good look at a potential game-tying triple by Camson as time ran out.

CJ Perez led all scorers with 25 points but even he couldn’t buy a basket when it mattered most for the Dyip, who fell to 0-5.

Juami Tiongson added 21 points built on six 3-pointers for TerraFirma, which lost the game despite hitting 15 triples.
