Green Archers fall to hot shooting Tamaraws

Published on September 13th, 2015 | by Khyte Mendoza


De La Salle University (DLSU) Green Archers suffered their second lost of the season against heavy favorites Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws, 93-75, in the UAAP Season 78 Men’s Basketball at the Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay City.

Jeron Teng led the Archers, swishing league-high 29 points, 19 in the first half, but also gave away six possessions and was on a drought in the second half, scoring only six in the fourth period.

Archers shot a dismal 37.33% shooting percentage on the floor against Coach Nash Racela’s crew, who shot 47.89% from the field throughout the game.

FEU and DLSU traded baskets in the first half as they went into halftime with the Tamaraws leading by a narrow margin, 45-43.

The Morayta-based squad caught fire as Monbert Arong scored a trey, 54-64, to cap off a 7-0 run by FEU, with 3:43 remaining in the third frame.

The Tams continued to annihilate DLSU with their hot shooting from rainbow country as Alejandrino Inigo buried a buzzer-beating triple to push the lead to 23, 77-54, at the end of the third quarter. FEU ended the period with 20 unanswered points against the Green Archers.

La Salle tried to fight back with Teng and Julian Sargent drilling in back-to-back baskets to trim the deficit to 16, 83-67, 4:07 remaining in the final canto.

Belo spoiled the hope of a DLSU comeback as he muscled his way inside and layed the ball in to bring back the edge to 18, 87-69, with over three minutes left in the game.

Mike Tolomia topscored for the Tamaraws, tallying 20 points, 16 from the first half, and five assists but turned the ball over six
times, Belo added 17 markers and five blocks while rookie big man Prince Orizu notched 12 markers and grabbed 9 boards.

DLSU slid at the bottom of the standings with a 1-2 slate and will try to even their record against the Adamson University Falcons on Sunday, September 20 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.'
