Amer bails out Gilas Cadets in tough outing vs Ateneo

Gilas cadets were looking for a good challenge from Ateneo and they had quite a scare instead.

The Cadets got more than they bargained for as they needed end-game heroics from Baser Amer to escape Ateneo, 86-79, in a tuneup Tuesday at Moro Lorenzo Sports Complex.

Amer flourished in the pressure-packed situations, accounting for Gilas’ last eight points in the final two minutes and 12 seconds, to rescue his team from what could’ve been a humiliating loss.

“The Gilas boys showed us some things about experience. Baser is maturing very quickly, he made big plays down the stretch and that’s what they brought him in to do,” Ateneo coach Tab Baldwin told reporters.

With the cadets protecting an 82-79 edge, Amer took matters into his own hands and buried a floater to stretch the lead to five with 29.1 seconds left before getting a steal and assist to Kiefer Ravena six seconds later to seal the game.
