Dhurakij, who were third last year, were in complete control in the last two quarters before wrapping up the match in convincing fashion to take the HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn trophy and a Bt50,000 cheque. The runners-up took home Bt40,000.
Spearheaded by Naruepon Wongsuk and Jakkrapan Silapapipat, who are members of three-time Division A champions Hi-Tech, Dhurakij steered clear from the start and led 14-12 in the first session.
Dhurakij extended their lead to 23-16 in the second quarter until Rangsit, with impressive teamwork between Supachai Sangthong and Kunakorn Sasison, pulled even at 25 apiece.
Dhurakij regained their composure in the third quarter, keeping Rangsit on their heels with rapid attacks and solid defence. They surged to a 47-32 lead going into the last quarter, when Rangsit's game faded away.
Naruepon ended up as the top scorer in the match with 14 points. Rangsit's Supachai had 13 points.
In the third-place play-off match, Bangkok University edged hosts Siam University 74-73 to leave the home supporters heartbroken. Bangkok earned Bt30,000 and Siam won Bt20,000.
