La Salle outlasts NU in high-scoring game

De La Salle University has just proven that it cannot be beaten at its own game - in the early going of the UAAP 80 Men's Basketball Tournament, at the very least.

Utilizing their full arsenal, the Green Archers aced the tough test put up by National University, 115-109, on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum.

Right from the start, the two teams went at it and scored basket after basket after basket.

The defending champions' "mayhem" was answered by the Bulldogs' very own running game as both of them combined for the highest scoring output in over a decade.

In the end, however, DLSU's overflowing and overwhelming talent won out.

Invisible in their first game, Ricci Rivero came alive in this one, especially inside the last three minutes.
