Round 2 - FEU vs UP and AdU vs NU

Aug. 18, Saturday
FEU-59   UP-53
AdU-68   NU-53

[Had to miss the first two game dates, Aug. 13 and 14, of the 2nd Round
to shoot the 3rd Iron Man 70.3 Triathlon at Cam Sur.]
  That Saturday - NU beat UE and AM beat FEU.
The following day - UST beat UP and AdU beat DLS.

Both the Tamaraws and Falcons were able to exact revenge against separate opponents on the third game date of the 2nd Round  of the eliminations in the UAAP Season 74 Basketball Tourney.  FEU beat UP by 6 points [59-53] and Adamson followed suit by winning over NU [68-53]. 

The 1st quarter ended at 15-all.  In the 2nd and 3rd Quarters, the Fighting Maroons limited the Tamaraws to 10 points per quarter and seemd to be headed for another upset over FEU, entering the 4th with a 13 point bulge [48-53] - - -

But FEU's experienced crew held the Boys from Katipunan
to a measly 5 points in the last quarter, whilst pouring in
 24 points to win by 6 [59-53].


UP had no counter to RR Garcia's 4th Quarter savy.
Here, Garcia's floater goes over the outstreched arms of UP's Mbah.

An all too common sight after every UP match.
Tough, very tough.

In the second match, not surprisingly, the Falcons floored it early on,
ending the 1st Quarter ahead by 10.  They continued to dominate the Bulldogs in the 2nd Quarter to end the half [37-22]with 15 point lead.  The 3rd saw Bobby Parks & Coy. outscore Austria's boys 16 to 11, but Coach Altamirano's charges were still behind by 10 [38-48] going into the 4th.

Janus Lozada drills a three.
The Falcons' experience again was just

too much for the Bulldogs to handle.

They were simply outplayed by Adamson - - -

who was led by their main man, Alex Nuyles.
He, along with Lozada and Cabrera tallied double figures.
They combined for 37 points, more than half of their team's final output of 68.
Parks managed 31 points the rest of his team mates could not complement
his scoring.  After Bobby Jr., the next highest scorer for NU was Mbe,
who put in only 6 points.
