UAAP Season 75 Men's Basketball Week 3: Winners and Losers
UAAP Season 75's week three has come, gone and settled the playing court
to be a lot clearer.
FEU Tamaraws 7 and 8
Don't you forget about me: Jeric Teng and UST Growling Tigers
Amidst all the hype little brother Jeron is getting over at Taft Avenue, the older Teng is actually the one proving that basketball
truly flows through the family bloodline. In UST's second consecutive come-from-behind victory, this time over fancied NU, Jeric tallied 21 points and 11 rebounds, exploding for 15 in the second quarter. Many pre-season pundits believed Pido Jarencio's to be the most dangerous team, with their skills perfectly polished by necessary experience. And so far, if not for the final minute meltdown in their first game, the Growling Tigers
would actually be the only unbeaten team.
Greg Slaughter, ADMU Blue Eagles
20 points, 7 rebounds and a block was the stat line to serve notice that the boys in blue still own gang green, as they have for the last five years. ADMU has bested DLSU in 9 out of their last 10 meetings, four straight since 2010
, Sunday being the most recent one spearheaded by Greg Slaughter's domination.
Yet again, it was not supposed to be this close. The Diliman iskolars
lived up to their moniker once again, resurrecting from a more than 20 point deficit to actually taking the lead in the dying seconds of the game. UP fought with all they could, but eventually bowed to Adamson 69 to 67 as the final buzzer sounded.
The playground antics continue for NU as they bullied hapless UP 67 to 50 Thursday but gifted older and experienced UST with a comeback victory 77 to 71 Saturday. The Bulldogs
were supposed to have learned how to stand up to the perennial contenders last year and finally stand with them this season, but so far, Ray Parks and company have been kept to their knees by the Blue Eagles and the Growling Tigers.
Gee Abanilla's search for the perfect bow and arrows combination
The Taft team continued to succumb to the Katipunan quintet as Coach Gee Abanilla was again unable to find the perfect five to be playing together on the floor. Systemic of the Green Archers
' performances in recent years, no go-to squad presented itself as minutes were spread out to fourteen different players, who had to take time to warm and shape up to game tempo each time they go in. Such is in stark contrast to the Blue Eagles
steady rotation of eight who were continually kept warmed up and shaped up.Juice Recommends:Juice Dining: Channel your inner foodieJuice Movies: All the latest from the silver screen
