Villamonte dropped to 3-1 after losing to Cabug, 85-95 leaving Barangay 10 the only undefeated squad in Bracket E. Cabug improved to 2-1 hoping to join the next round provided it sweeps its remaining schedule.
Barangay 19 showed why they are the defending champion by upsetting Banago under Coach William Descutido, 98-72 and got solo 3-0 leadership in Bracket F. Banago dropped to 3-1 but might advance if it wins its remaining games.
