The Jokers Destroyers (Masters), Naked Fish Ridin’ Darrty (A), and Jokers Spartans (C) led the list of winners after becoming two-time champions by topping the regular season and Bud Light Cup.
Destroyers captain Gerry Galsote Sadiri Martin, Romy Intendez, Gigi Gatmaitan, Burth Dacumos, Pam Ybanez, Anie Legaspi, and Sonny Ebuen were almost unbeatable in the four-tem Masters division after collecting 165 wins out of the 255 games they played in the regular season.
