Angelis Resort along with Gilas A and Gilas B both finished with similar 2-3 records at the end of the group phase. But owing to higher quotients, Angelis Resort and Gilas B clinched the last two berths in the semifinals.

The top two seeded teams both finished the group stage with identical 4-1 records.

But the Philippine Navy clinched the no.1 spot by virtue of its close 18-17 win over Uratex at the end of the eliminations phase.
