Green, Junior Archers end preseason in setbacks
Two De La Salle Archer squads wrapped up its preparation for the UAAP on June 10 with the same result.
The Green Archers was battered by NCAA seniors basketball champions San Beda College in the fourth quarter, resulting to a 49-70 blowout in the quarterfinals of the FilOil-Flying V Preseason Manny V. Pangilinan Cup at the FilOil-Flying V Arena.
Peejay Barua was the lone double figure scorer with 13 points.
Pending the reported preparatory league organized by ABS-CBN this month, this ends the tumultuous preseason for the Green Archers as they now focus on the coming UAAP wars.
Earlier in the day at the Far Eastern University Gym, the Junior Archers succumbed in overtime to Jose Rizal University’s hot shooting, 85-88, in the Nike Summer League juniors division battle for third.
DLSZ led in double digits early in the game but was not able to sustain the headway as the Light Bombers found their shooting touch in the second half. The green and white squad had a chance to either win in regulation or extend the game but the attempts did not fall in.
Luigi dela Paz led the Junior Archers with 29 points as Arnold Van Opstal was a rebound short of a double-double with 20 markers. Anton Sevilla scored 11.
DLSZ was second to Colegio de San Juan de Letran in the Filipino-Chinese Basketball League.
