Exile kept its win-loss slate immaculate in the 2020 Kings of the Court Corporate Commercial invitationals following their 90-69 disposal of Maynilad, Sunday inside The Upper Deck Lifestyle Center in Ortigas.

Now at 4-0, the Exile ballclub assured itself of top billing in the semifinals after blasting another opponent by double figures. Behind the big numbers of Jay Arcusa and Luis Palaganas, Exile waltzed to another victory against a Maynilad side who missed the services of Week 4 hero Von Lanete.

The sweet-shooting Arcusa knocked down five triples to finish with team-high 19 points. Palaganas, who played college ball for the UE Red Warriors, registered 14 markers and grabbed four rebounds.

Arol Basilio tallied 19 points and collared six rebounds to pace Maynilad, who stumbled to 1-3. Allen Virtudazo and Du Canlas added 16 and 11 markers respectively.
