MANILA, Philippines – The Star Hotshots asserted their mastery over Phoenix for one last time in the PBA Philippine Cup, as they routed the Fuel Masters, 91-71, to claim a spot in the conference semifinals Monday at the Araneta Coliseum.

Star used a huge third quarter to turn a slim 42-35 halftime lead into a comfortable 65-49 advantage, and they went on to cruise to victory.

The Hotshots will face either Alaska or Ginebra in the semifinals.
