Opening their UAAP Season 77 title defense, the DLSU Lady Archers picked up steam in an instant as the team defeated the UST Tigresses, 56-50, earlier at the Ateneo Blue Eagle Gym in Quezon City.

Finals MVP Trisha Piatos led the Lady Archers with 23 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists while Nicky Garcia chipped in 9 points and 8 boards. In addition, Camille Claro contributed 6 points and 6 dimes.

On the other hand, Kim Reyes led UST with 14 points and 6 rebounds while Lore Rivera added 11 points and grabbed 14 boards.

Entering into the final quarter, the Lady Archers knew they were in for a gritty battle. With Garcia fouling and Miller Ong fouling out, the defending champions pulled out all the necessary stops thanks to some timely daggers from Piatos along with a steady defensive effort. In the end, Piatos alone proved to be too much for the Tigresses to handle.

For their next game, the Lady Archers shall face the FEU Lady Tamaraws this July 16, 11:00 am, at the Blue Eagle Gym.
