MANILA, Philippines – La Salle continued to stamp its class in the Filoil-Flying V Pre-Season MVP Cup as it fashioned out a 91-69 victory over Mapua for its third win in a row at the Filoil-Flying V Arena in San Juan yesterday.

Joshua Webb came away with 14 points while Gabriel Banal and PJ Barua added 13 points apiece as the Archers stayed unbeaten before leaving for the US tomorrow for an alumni convention and training which will last for two weeks.

“We’re here in this tournament to gauge the strength and weaknesses of our team especially now that we have a lot of new players,” said La Salle head coach Franz Pumaren.

Rookies Arvie Bringas, Joseph Tolentino, Gabriel Banal, and Yutien Andrada combined for 34 points to provide the needed backup to the team’s mainstays.

The Archers dominated the Cardinals from start to finish, leading by as many as 27 points, 87-60, in the last quarter.
