Archers Secure Final Four Bonus with Revengeful Win over Eagles
La Salle closed its UAAP Season 86 men’s basketball tournament elimination round assignment with a win against Ateneo. The Green Archers swept the second round and are now likely to have a twice-to-beat advantage in the Final Four.
Coach Topex Robinson said,
We always make sure to take care of what we have control of, and we don’t really know and we don’t wanna pay attention to what’s gonna happen in the next few days. We’re not gonna waste time thinking about who we’re gonna play, but we’re gonna put all of our energy and effort in making sure we’re okay. La Salle finished with an 11-3 slate, overtaking University of the Philippines (11-2) and National University (NU) at 10-3.
On the other hand, University of Santo Tomas (UST) ended its campaign on a positive note with a victory against Far Eastern University. Coach Pido Jarencio mentioned,
In basketball, it’s all about timing. Winning, becoming a champion, building a strong team, other teams graduating their players. It’s a process. For us, the process continues on. Jarencio’s Tigers finished with a 2-12 score, with both wins coming at the expense of the Tamaraws.
