JRU wards off San Sebastian to close in on playoff return

With its new and improved backcourt leading the way, Jose Rizal University has one foot in the playoff door in the NCAA 93 men’s basketball tournament.

Jed Mendoza poured 6 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter, Teytey Teodoro again brought the big baskets, and the Heavy Bombers just had enough to stop oncoming San Sebastian College-Recoletos, 60-58, at Filoil Flying V Centre on Friday.

With the win, Vergel Meneses’ wards are assured of at least a playoff for a Final Four berth.

“Iyong mga players ko, they want to prove that they belong in this league,” the head coach said after JRU improved to 10-6 — still solo third-place.

Making it happen was Cameroonian Abdel Poutouochi who coolly converted a couple of charities to overturn a 1-point deficit to a 1-point advantage with 29.5 ticks to go.
