Jose Rizal University barged back into the win column of the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament after blasting Emilio Aguinaldo College, 69-63, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

The Heavy Bombers had been on a three-game losing slide before this win that improves their standing to 4-7. "Thankful kami na at least, nanalo na kami ulit," head coach Louie Gonzalez said in his first post-win interview in over a month.

Agem Miranda and Marwin Dionisio made sure they got back on track in this one, joining forces for a 7-2 run that increased a four-point edge, 56-60, inside the last five minutes to a 67-58 lead with 24 ticks to go.

Still, CJ Cadua and Jethro Mendoza kept coming and pulled the Generals within 63-67, but Dionisio sealed the deal once and for all with a breakaway layup.
