Champions yet again.
The DLSU Green Archers successfully notched the 2013 PCCL Championship after dispatching the SWU Cobras, 70-61, last December 17 at the Filoil Flying V Arena.
PCCL Finals MVP Jeron Teng notched 16 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists while streaky guard Almond Vosotros chipped in 15 points and 3 assists. In addition, Jason Perkins had a double-double outing to the tune of 14 points and 10 rebounds.
“Hopefully this learning and experience would carry us next year. We still have to learn more,” shared DLSU Head Coach Juno Sauler after the game.
On the other hand, Landry Sanjo led SWU with 16 points and 13 rebounds while Mac Tallo added 15 points and 8 assists.
“I applaud the way they played. They seemed to not stop playing,” Sauler added about facing SWU in the series.
Slowly but surely
La Salle dictated the pace the game with the aid of consistent ball movement and smart plays.
After Robert Bolick’s layup to give the team a big 68-51 lead, the Cobras ignited a 10-0 spurt to trim the La Salle lead. But the Archers relied on the timely trifectas of Vosotros to deny any SWU comeback.
For the series, Jeron Teng was hailed as Finals MVP.
Moreover, three Archers led the Mythical Five cast with Teng, Vosotros and Perkins. Tallo and Sanjo completed the quintet.
In addition, Coach Sauler was also hailed as best coach for the series.
This is La Salle’s second PCCL title since last winning it in 2008 against archrival Ateneo.
