Led by their hard working team captain Joel Hinds, MBA for the first time in the tournament ended the 1st half in front, 22-21.

During the second period MBA played with more intensity with 6-9 center Chike Augustine finally showing up with three critical block shots. With the game still open Hinds started the 2nd session by weaving his way through the opponent defense for a layup to increase the lead, 24-21.

With the scores still close in the 1.51 mark, forward Justin Medina came up with a big steal with resulted in an uncontested layup for Patrick Scipio as MBA pulled away 35-31. As the battle continued Team Legacy offense was shut down with some aggressive half court man to man defense by MBA.

In the closing 10 seconds Augustine scored a dunk off a missed shot to increase the lead 37-31. Next possession MBA forced a turnover and Medina scored a three point play, a layup & free shot, to end the contest.

With the win Team MBA won the 3rd place and at the same time scored a revenged victory. Team Legacy won the earlier group match 37-30.
