By Hamsha Nocedo, published May 29, 2019

Shorthanded Factset showed their experience in the second half as they kicked off their campaign in the Kings of the Court | STR8 Philippines Corporate Recreational tournament with a victory over rookie team Uber, 65-58, last May 26 at The Upper Deck in Ortigas.

Rein Gaitan and Erwin Guevarras led a 9-0 spurt for the financial data company to increase a 12-point lead to 19, 50-31, midway through the third.

Later in the fourth, the duo made some crucial baskets to keep their opponents at bay.

Terrence Teodisio finally found his range in the second half after seeing his team trailing as much as 17. Uber’s sharpshooter made four straight treys to cut the deficit to six in the third period, 53-47.

After Rommel Mibalo’s putback at the 4:03 mark of the fourth period pushed Uber to within five, Gaitan’s two free throws and Dela Cruz' basket off the steal stopped the bleeding for Factset and made it 62-53 under the last two minutes.

The two teams shrugged off their rust immediately as they exchanges threes in the opening tip, Dela Cruz started the fire with a triple, then Teodisio came back with a three of his own. Still, Factset established an early 14-point lead at the end of the first quarter, 27-13.

Uber exploited Factset's scoring drought and started the second canto with 14 straight points orchestrated by Jeromar Belen to cut the lead to four, 29-25.

Factset's first basket in the second period came at the 4:21 mark courtesy of a three-point bomb by Gaitan and another three by Dela Cruz to close out the quarter with a ten-to-nothing run.

In an all-around game, Gaitan tallied 19 points, eight assist, five rebounds, and three steals. Guevarras registered 13 markers, three swipes and 19 rebounds - nine of which came on the offensive end. Jonathan Dela Cruz finished with 19 points while Emman Macario turned in an 11-point, 14-rebound performance.

Teodisio led all scorers with 28 points, while Rommel Mibalo added 14 markers and 11 boards for Uber.
