GreenArchers.ph TV: DLSU vs UP Highlights
- There were five players in the starting lineup of both squads that came from De La Salle high schools: Joshua Webb, Simon Atkins, and Martin Reyes graduated from DLSZ, and Ferdinand and Mikee Reyes are LSGH alumni.
- Two Martin Reyes three-pointers sandwiched an An Alvin Padilla triple for the Maroons’ biggest lead, 15-6, 4:54 of the first period.
- Maui Villanueva anchored the Archers’ 9-0 counter rally to come near before the quarter ended. By this time, the defense was revving up while both teams decided to run and gun.
- Peejay Barua’s jumper at the corner from an inbounds play was the Archers’ first taste of the lead, 23-22, 5:30 in the second quarter. Joel Tolentino’s two freethrows at the 1:21 mark were the go-ahead points as DLSU never trailed from there, 27-25.
- A 7-0 run done in less than a minute gave the Archers’ first double digit margin of the season. After Webb made his charities, he scored a quick basket coming from an interception at midcourt. Hyram Bagatsing then scored a three in the next possession for an 11-point spread, 40-29, 7:01 in the third.
- A Webb three-pointer, 43-31, 6:40 in the third was the Archers’ widest margin in the period before the Maroons caught up and came within three, 43-46, from a Magi Sison turnaround jumper, 1:25 in the clock.
- Bader Malabes heated up, scoring his only two three-pointers in the game in a 10-0 blast for a 13-point gap, 60-47, 7:41 of the fourth. His last basket came from an Arvie Bringas interception past midcourt. The other two field goals in the rally came from putbacks courtesy of James Mangahas and Webb. Two Atkins freethrows after a UP timeout was the game’s biggest lead, 62-47, 7:12 remaining.
- At the half, the Archers shot 42% from the two-point area but went 0/12 from triple-v country for a 30% clip. They had zero points in seven fastbreak attempts, but they countered with 15 turnover points.
- At the end of the game, the green and white squad finished with a 32% field goal accuracy, while shooting 15/23 from the line. The Archers were also the lord of the offensive board with 23, despite UP grabbing more total rebounds with 52. They also had 14 assists, 11 steals, and four blocks.
