Last thursday, June 19, 2014, members of the Phi Kappa Mu team decimated the formidable Mu Sigma Phi team at the Philippine General Hospital Basketball Court, amid consecutive delays, concluding the 5th game in the PGH Orthopedics cup series.

The team was comprised of Brods Joseff Karl Uy Fernandez Φ2009, Jose Nicolo Domingo Antonio Φ2012, Javier Miguel Dela Cruz Cabatan Φ2012, Van Euldem Diaz Battad Φ2013, and Kevin Romeo Sangel Lucas Φ2013 forming the starting five; as well as Jojiemar Salonga De Pano Φ2011, Vincent Elvin Tabamo Garduce Φ2012, and Timothy Carl Francisco Uy Φ2012. Junior Guardian of the Temple Kevin Romeo Sangel Lucas led the counteroffensive that resulted in the 42-32 carnage, racking up a total of 28 points and squelching the Mu team's early lead.

The first quarter started slow as Phi opened the scoring with a 2 (+ 1 from a foul) point shot from Brod Kevin Lucas but ended 5-7 in favor of Mu due to solid team defense and converted free throws from fouls on either end of the court.

The second quarter ended 15-12 as Phi began picking up the pace. Phi’s shooting and chance creation improved during this quarter; breaking down the Mu defense time and again due to drives from Brod Karl Fernandez and assists from Brod Vince Garduce.

The third quarter was characterized by increased penetration and movement from both sides due to a more fluid offense. Still, both defenses stood strong throughout the quarter, although the Phi team remained offensively astute, securing a 5-point lead. Mu capitalized on turnovers and scored points from quick counterattacks but the quarter ended 28 - 23 still in favor of PHI. 

In the middle of the fourth quarter, both Phi centers Jojie De Pano and Jake Cabatan were fouled out. Despite this, the team improved ball circulation to push forward and create an unassailable 10 point lead above the rivals to end the game 42-32.

The Phi team have to be commended for their solid defensive display and creativity in moving forward.

Brods, as well as sisses from the Phi Lambda Delta Sorority gathered to support and cheer for the team. The alumni brods present were Romeo Jalbuena Encanto Φ1997, John Paul Emerson Serrato Mariñas Φ2004B, Gerald Marion Maramag Abesamis Φ2005, Bayani Soriño Pasco Jr. Φ2005, SE 2009-2010, Dax Carlo Go Pascasio Φ2006, Marc Denver Aquino Tiongson Φ2006, Jeffrey Michael Viloria Wong Φ2006, John Michael Paraiso Baking Φ2007, Rene Edgardo Capati Manalastas Φ2008A, Antonio Miguel Padilla Dela Paz Φ2008B, SE 2012-2013, John Michael Torricer Mendoza Φ2008B, Abdelsimar Tan Omar II Φ2008B, and Jon Paolo Sandico Pineda Φ2008B.
