The Soaring Falcons were the first ones to blink in a clash between undefeated teams as they yield to National University (NU), 63-57, in the 2022 Filoil EcoOil Preseason Cup last August 5 at the Filoil EcoOil Center in San Juan.

Cedrick Manzano and Jerom Lastimosa joined hands to led Adamson to a 53-51 lead in the dying minutes of the final canto but a triple from NU rookie LA Casinillo ignited a 10-0 run for the Bulldogs to close out the game.

Lastimosa had a splendid scoring outing as the Dumaguete native posted 23 markers, four rebounds, four assists and two steals.

Manzano, meanwhile, tallied eight points, five rebounds, two steals and a block.

Adamson will try to bounce back against Mapua University this August 7.
