Lady Archers remain unbeaten in two games
Inna Corcuera scattered 11 points and a monstrous 19 rebounds as De La Salle slipped past a stubborn University of the East (UE), 55-52, for its second straight win Sunday in UAAP Season 74 women’s basketball tournament at the Blue Eagle gym.
The Lady Archers worked hard for the victory, wearing down the Lady Warriors who were enthusiastic to bounce back from their 52-64 defeat to the UP Lady Maroons at the start of the tournament early last week.
Hannah Vieterbo had 13 points in leading De La Salle, which trailed UE three-fourths of the way—4-9 in the first quarter, 18-26 in the second and 38-39 entering the final period.
Dianne Ventura finished with 21 points and Cindy Resultay laced her 17 markers with 18 rebounds for the Lady Warriors, who rolled to their second straight loss. Katherine Tan contributed 10 rebounds for UE’s losing cause.
Action resumes Sunday also at the Blue Eagle gym with the matches between De La Salle and Adamson at 9 a.m., UST and FEU at 11 a.m., NU and UE at 1 p.m. and UP and Ateneo at 3 p.m. – UAAP
