Domingo boosted his teammates take the much needed win with 22 points, seven rebounds and four assists as they now stand with a 3-4 win-loss record in the tournament.

Down to two in the first quarter, the Blazers took a 13-0 run late in the second quarter capped off by a triple from Unique Naboa that turned into a 41-26 advantage.

The Blazers did not let go of their momentum, even when Cameroonian Clement Leutcheu got ejected from the game in the last quarter for two technical fouls. He is also facing suspension for their next game, because of an altercation with Generals’ Juju Bautista.

Yankie Haruna added 11 points for the win.
