MisOr logged its fourth victory against three defeats to create a three-way tie for second place in the standings along with Roxas and Zamboanga Sibugay. 

Veteran Mac Baracael led the Valientes with 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting while Andoy Estrella added 12 points, six rebounds, and five assists.

But in the third period, the Anak Mindanao Warriors slowly crawled back, cutting their deficit down to just 14 points entering the final frame, 45-59.

Learning their lesson against Roxas, the Valientes managed to stop the surging Warriors down the stretch.
