Well-rested JRU crushes EAC

MANILA, Philippines – A well-rested Jose Rizal University (JRU) squad pounced on the Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC) Generals, 77-48, to claim their third win of the NCAA Season 93 men's basketball tournament on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

The Heavy Bombers last played on August 4, when they bowed to San Beda College, 54-48. Since then, they had an 11-day lay-off due in part to inclement weather that washed out two entire NCAA game days.

Against an EAC team that is still reeling from the injury to starting center Hamadou Laminou, the Heavy Bombers unleashed a 23-11 second quarter to turn a slim 14-10 lead into an unassailable 37-21 advantage at the half.

It was all JRU from that point, as their lead ballooned to 35 points, with the shell-shocked Generals unable to put up much of a challenge in the second half.

"If this team were playing to our potential, hindi ako matatakot whoever ang kalaban namin," said JRU coach Vergel Meneses after their victory.
