Alveo Sales stepped on the gas in the fourth quarter to frustrate Centric IT Group-Team A, 62-52, in their June 12 encounter in the Kings of the Court | STR8 Philippines Corporate Recreational League, held inside The Upper Deck Lifestyle Center in Pasig.

Same as what they did against Factset, Alveo Sales shrugged off a dismal first half performance and turned things around in the last two quarters by taking the game into a faster tempo. 

Both teams prevented the other from gaining momentum in the opening frame after having a great exchange of baskets. Arman Taylo drilled a three-pointer and a layup that gave Centric IT Group - Team A the upperhand, 15-12.

Despite Alveo Sales' better start in the second frame, Centric IT Group - Team A still found ways to control the game and managed to stay on top by three, 29-26.

However, it became a different story in the second half as Alveo Sales finally found their groove in the offensive end. JC Abarrientos took over in the third quarter by scoring 12 of his 16 points, while April Manuel got the job done in the final canto.

Marco Custodio finished with a game-high of 17 points. Manuel showed unmatched speed as he poured 10 fast break points in the fourth period to finish with 15 points. Abarrientos contributed a near double-double performance, collecting 16 markers, nine boards, and three assists.
Hirohito Rivera knocked down four triples in a 15-point effort. Arman Taylo delivered 15 points while Joseph Carlo Hermo added 12 markers for Centric IT Group - Team A.
