With a 2-0 record, AMC Cotabato joined Iloilo-based D’Navigators and Imus on top of the standings.

“We were so erratic at sa sobrang dami ng errors nafu-frustrate na kami,” Mamon said.

Benjaylo Labide had 14 points, including two service aces, and 15 receptions, while PJ Rojas chipped in 12 points for the Troopers.
