The Soaring Falcons continues their development while also bringing home accolades on the side. 

Coach Nash Racela’s wards were hailed as second runners-up of the 38th Kadayawan Festival Invitational Basketball Tournament after outclassing NCAA powerhouse Saint Benilde, 79-69, August 6, at the University of Southeastern Philippines Gymnasium and Cultural Center. 

It was a tight affair from the tip-off until the latter part of the second quarter when Adamson unleashed a barrage of three-point conversions to end the first half up by 10 at 44-34. 

Adamson just continued to stave off each run attempted by Benilde until the final buzzer as countless crucial baskets were converted by various Falcons to preserve their lead. 

Didat Hanapi led the way for the San Marcelino crew with nine points, four assists and a steal.
