Coming up a tight win from their previous encounter against UST, the DLSU Lady Archers once again came out on top after holding off the gritty Adamson University Lady Falcons, 50-42, earlier at the Blue Eagle Gym in Ateneo de Manila University, Quezon City.

Young stars Camille Claro and Ana Castillo scored 8 points apiece and grabbed a combined 9 rebounds while Trisha Piatos chipped in 7 points and dished out 5 assists.

On the other hand, Zhalyn Mateo and Jinky Ballasta scored a combined 22 points for Adamson while Jesusa Avila added 7 points and 6 rebounds.

“They have composure regardless of the situation and they can be in control,” said head coach Tyrone Bautista of his girls after the game.

Featuring a series of exchanging buckets in the final quarter, La Salle pulled out the necessary stops and hit the crucial baskets when it counted the most.

As the Lady Archers held a 42-34 lead after Nicky Garcia’s three-point play with under two minutes left in regulation, everything seemed to be moving into La Salle’s favor. But after Adamson burned a timeout, they answered back with their own off-the-timeout plays which trimmed the DLSU lead.

However, the Lady Archers proved to have the upper hand as the team denied any chance of a comeback attempt from the Lady Falcons in the dying seconds of the game thanks to Alyanna Ong’s game-sealing putback.

“It helps that we have the championship experience. It also helps that we have veteran players,” shared Bautista after La Salle denied Adamson’s end-game run.

Up next for the defending UAAP women’s basketball champions are the UP Lady Maroons this July 24, 1:00 pm, at the Blue Eagle Gym, Quezon City.
