Pablico and Labang finished with 17 points each as Adamson drew level with Far Eastern University.

Mark Alvarez also showed his offensive prowess by dropping 16 points while Carlo Jimenez made 39 excellent sets and seven digs.

Chris Dumago scored 18 points for La Salle, who absorbed its second consecutive defeat following an opening-game loss to Ateneo.
