Kady Wilson embraces Inna Corcuera after the final buzzer.
Inna didn't score much, only 2 points, but came away with 10 boards,
next only to Abaca's 17 big ones.

Hannah Viterbo takes a three from 9 o'clock as
Mariluo Borja arrives too late.

FEU will be called for the last touch.

Small but terrible - Tricia Piatos managed 8 points

Coach Bautista making sure everyone is on the same page.

Go La Salle !!!

[Juniors Basketball]

Wilfredo Asuncio

Janus Suarez takes it straight to the teeth of theTamaraw defense.

And gets his hard earned two points.

Mark Gamboa, yonger brother of Mike Gamboa of UP,
drives to the hoop in this 3-frame sequence.



Wilfredo Asuncion takes a long distane twinner.

One cannot really stop Jerie Piongoy of the Junior Tams from scoring.

One can, at most, try to limit his point production.

Vitangcol blocks an attempt by Gem San Jose.

Asuncion again, this time, leading the break.

Mission accomplished.

NU  vs.  La Salle [twice-to-beat]

Boris Aldeguer's boys came away with 19 turnover points, as compared to NU's 11, and DLSZ had 12 steals to NU's 5.  But the Bulldogs' domination of the boards [50 against 36] and field goal clip [42% tagainst 22%] did the Junior Archers in.

By the start of the 4th Quarter, NU was up by 15.  All they had to do in the last 10 minutes was just to match DLSZ basket for basket/point for point and that would be more than enough for them to win.  And that's exactly what NU did. They scored 19 points and allowed DLSZ to score 20 poinbts in the 4th and when the final buzzer sounded the score was NU-66  DLSZ-52.

Raphael Atangan's gutsy moves paid dividends for NU.

He managed 14 points with 32 minutes playing time.
He also took 9 boards, 3 of which were offensive.

Gabby Reyes was the lone Archer with double figures.
Napa, Atangan, Baliton, and Rivero all scored double figures for NU.

Ralph Tansingco eludes Von Kieffer Yu for a twinner.


Paul Baliton being pressured by Isaac Lim.

- Atangan vs Reyes -
Atangan wins.

Paolo Rivero uses his heft to score.


Atangan again, this time for a solo two.

Siblings Patricia and Bea Coronel [middle & right],
and a friend, came by to cheer for DLSZ.

Thomasian Jeric Fortuna and Atenean Nico Elorde once wore the
Green and White.  Both guys bumped into each other after watching
the NU-DLSZ game.
