De La Salle University (DLSU) Green Archers broke out from losing spell to ablaze Adamson University (AdU) Soaring Falcons with their torrid shooting, 88-71, in the UAAP Season 78 Men’s Basketball at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, earlier today.

DLSU bounced back from two consecutive defeats in the hands of the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons and Far Eastern Univesity Tamaraws to even their record, 2-2, and return to the winning track.

The Taft-based squad was able to hold off Adamson to just 29.7% from the field, but lost the rebounding column, 48-50, and gave away 22 turnovers against the Falcons.

Jeron Teng once again played as hero, leading the charge for the Green Archers with an all-around performance. He notched 18 points, grabbed nine rebounds and five assists. Teng shot an efficient 53% from the field.

Thomas Torres contributed 16 markers, nine from deep, and five assists while Julian Sargent added 11 points. Jason Perkins and Larry Muyang grabbed nine and 12 boards respectively. Eight players from La Salle were able to score at least five points in the game.

Torres and Joshua Torralba daggered three consecutive triples to bring the Archers’ lead to 26, 56-30, with still 7:04 left in the third quarter.

Adamson did not go down without a fight as JD Tungcab buried a trey and cut the deficit to 16, 63-47, late in the third frame.

Teng delivered the goods for La Salle and helped them stop the bleeding with a dipsy-doo lay-up to push the lead back up, 67-52, early in the fourth frame.

AdU received a setback as Head Coach Mike Fermin was sent off from the stands as he contested the unsportsmanlike foul called on Dawn Ochea who hit Torres in the face when they were scrambling on the floor to get the loose ball.

However, the Falcons seemed to get into their rhythm late in the final canto, dropping an 8-0 rally capped off by a triple from William Polican, 81-70, 1:30 left in the game.

The Green and White held off Adamson as Josh Caracut put the icing on the cake, sinking two points from the charity stripe, 85-71, with under a minute remaining.

Pape Sarr topscored for Coach Fermin’s crew, tallying a double-double 18 points and 16 rebounds while chief playmaker Joseph Nalos and Harold Ng chipped in 10 markers apiece. Ng also had six assists in the game.

De La Salle University Green Archers (2-2) will next face the University of the East Red Warriors (2-2) on September 27, Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
