Ervin Grospe fired 19 points as Jose Rizal University massacred Emilio Aguinaldo College, 72-48 in the 93rd men’s basketball tournament of the NCAA at the Fioil Arena in San Juan.

The Heavy Bombers relied on a scoring blitz in the second quarter to rip the game wide open and earn their third win in six games.

Jed Mendoza and Abdul Sawat scored in double figures to help Jose Rizal’s cause.
