Fuerza Regia overcame an 11-point deficit to beat the Freseros de Irapuato 81-80, and thus win the first game of the mini series.
The Monterrey quintet took advantage of the locals' mistakes to hit someone else's yard and in turn return to the path of victory in the final stretch of the season.
Shonn Miller became the most dangerous man by contributing 21 points, nine rebounds and one assist to the northern cause.
It was in the third period when the Freseros took the lead on the scoreboard, where Antwon Lillard and Manuel Hernández did their thing for the locals with 23 and 13 points, respectively.
However, two effective free throws by Jordan Glynn at the end of the match made the difference for Fuerza Regia to take the victory.
With this result, the Aurinegros continue to fight for the top of the table by improving their record of winning 18 games with seven defeats.
The second game of the series will take place this Friday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m. at Inforum TV4 Irapuato.
