JRU blows out Perpetual to remain at solo third

Jose Rizal University needs to keep winning to stay ahead of the six other squads still in the running for the last two playoff berths in the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

The Heavy Bombers did just that on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, hanging a noose around the heads of University of Perpetual Help right from tip-off before keeping it tight the rest of the way for a resounding rout, 85-52.

Vergel Meneses’ wards lived up to their billing as a stout defensive squad and held their opponents to single-digits in scoring for the first 16 minutes of the game. “Our defense ang main (key) kanina. Good defense, naging good offense,” the head coach said.

Indeed, the defensive intensity carried over to the other end where MJ Dela Virgen steered JRU to a strong 29-9 start.

Flash Sadiwa had back-to-back hits to finally let the Altas breach double-digits only to see Teytey Teodoro pour in all eight of his points in the 10-2 counter that increased his team’s advantage to 39-15.
