Pregame: DLSU vs UE 7/31
La Salle looks to continue its winning run as they collide with cellar dweller UE tomorrow. Game time is at 1PM.
The Green Archers are reeling after two successive losses to start the season. This past week, they defeated UP 79-67 and NU 74-63. These wins though were not as nearly convincing as the final score might show. Both games almost followed the same storyline with La Salle waxing hot and erecting a huge halftime lead only to turn ice cold in the second half thus giving their opponent the opportunity to mount a serious comeback.
The win over NU last Thursday was overshadowed by the team’s field goal futility in the third quarter. Instead of being ecstatic, supporters are beginning to question the team’s mental toughness and their ability to close out games strong.
The still win-less Red Warriors are in a mess right now after being blown out by Adamson by 31 points in their previous outing. If only Lee and Acibar stayed, this team could have contended this season.
The Archers are expected to cruise to another lopsided victory here but if they really want to silence all the doubters, they need to play consistently all throughout with no letdown on offense and defense.
The team should not just win, they should win convincingly.
