Pumaren on UE loss to UP: ‘Desiderio killed us’

It took just one man to crush University of the East’s fighting spirit.

And that man, according to Red Warriors head coach Derrick Pumaren, was University of the Philippines’ Paul Desiderio, who had a career game on Sunday.

“Desiderio killed us in the third and we lost our pace, we simply ran away from what we were supposed to do,” said Pumaren after losing to UP, 84-71, in the UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball tournament.

UE had control of the game heading into the break with a 42-38 lead but the start of the second half saw Desiderio catch fire.

Desiderio scored 16 of the Fighting Maroons’ 26 points in the third quarter while the Red Warriors only had seven points to show.
