PASAY--With its team captain out, Converge found gems from its "missing links".

The FiberXers' support cast worked wonders to make up for sitting out the injured Jeron Teng on Wednesday especially in the endgame as they clobbered the Terrafirma Dyip, 97-84, in their PBA Philippine Cup clash at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Mike Digregorio and Maverick Ahanmisi came alive for Converge in the fourth quarter, combining for 26 of the team's 34 points in the said period even as they pulled away from Terrafirma in the last 12 minutes in a tight game that saw 12 deadlocks and 17 lead changes.

Digregorio finished with 19 points, one rebound, one assist, and one steal, while Ahanmisi added 17 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists for the FiberXers, who snapped a two-game skid despite also sitting out injured wingman Kevin Racal as well as newly-re-signed Abu Tratter and moved up to 2-3.

Joseph Gabayni made 18 markers, seven boards, one dime, two blocks, and one steal for the Dyip, who fell to 0-4.
