In the second game, the Adamson Lady Falcons kept their Final Four hopes alive as they squaked past the Ateneo Lady Eagles, 47-46.

Nathalia Prado drilled the game-winning free throws with 12.7 seconds remaining after a Kristina Deacon free throw. Pinky Uy de Ong had a chance to steal the game for Ateneo, but missed a long three-point attempt.

Prado topscored for the 6-7 Lady Falcons with 15 points, while Jamie Alcoy contributed 14.

Meanwhile, Deacon led the Lady Eagles with 14. At 3-9, they are now eliminated from contention.
