The second night of competition in the 2nd BANMI Budweiser Cup was just as exciting as the first as the Brothers and Cougars both needed to put up near perfect numbers in the final quarters of their matches to escape on the winning side during their debuts.
In the curtain raiser, the Brothers, behind the play of scoring threat Fred Pelisamen, turned back the San Vicente Sunrisers, 89-83, after trailing for most parts of the bout.
The match was evenly contested after the first period of play, 14-14, but the Sunrisers began to get their groove on in the second stanza and outscored their opponents, 30-19, to rest at halftime with an 11-point advantage, 44-33.
Much to thank for the spread were standouts Mark Wallace and Jawn Joyner, who went berserk for 10 points apiece to give their squad an edge.
The Brothers, however, came storming back in the third and leveled the score at 63 apiece before the start of the final quarter. There, Pelisamen showed just what kind of damage he could do as he carried the scoring load and torched the net for 16 of his game-high 33 points to lead the Brothers to victory.
Veterans Rick Alegre and Tony Diaz supported Pelisamen with 14 and 13 points while Oscar Ada pumped in 12.
Wallace paced the Sunrisers with 28 points while Joyner contributed with 24.
Brothers 89-Pelisamen 33, Alegre 14, T. Diaz 13, Ada 12, Garcia 5, Manibusan 4, E. Diaz 4, Sablan 2, Ito 2.
Sunrisers 83-Wallace 28, Joyner 24, Reyes 11, Je. Quitugua 5, Tony 4, Castro 4, Masga 2, Jesse 2.
Scoring by quarters: 14-14, 33-44, 63-63, 89-83.

In the second game, the Cougars proved that games are being won in the fourth quarter after trailing in the first three periods before coming back to stun the Sun Devils, 77-68.
Guard Fando Muleta and forward Randy Arnedo spearheaded the late comeback, combining for 15 points in the last 10 minutes as the Cougars, who began the fourth quarter trailing by 4 points, rallied and gained favor courtesy of a 27-14 run.
Muleta topscored for the Cougars with 24 points while Arnedo finished with 12 points, respectively.
Erik Ouimette led the Sun Devils with 17 points while Donald Blundin and Gary Lashley added 13 and 10 points. 
Cougars 77-Muleta 24, Arnedo 12, J. Palacios 10, Lizama 8, Antates 8, Domingo 7, F. Palacios 6, Mesa 3.
Sun Devils 68-Ouimette 17, Blundin 13, Lashley 10, Stevens 8, Berlin 6, Nickerman 5, Warren 4, Weindl 4, Andrew 2.

Vibes banked on a good start en route to a 64-51 title win over the Ol'Aces 2 in the U25 division of the 2016 TanHoldings Christmas Basketball Tournament last Saturday at the Gillette Multipurpose Gymnasium. A 23-13 scoring spurt in the first quarter gave Vibes the early momentum and though the Ol'Aces 2 threatened the eventual champion a bit in the second period, the Matt Duenas-anchored squad still posted a double-digit winning margin in the one-game finals.
