Pasaol 30-10 game keys UE's breakthrough win vs UST

With a 49-point outburst, Alvin Pasaol granted University of the East some sort of consolation in their most recent loss.

With an encore to his scoring spree, however, he has now given his team their first prize the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Continuing to utilize his hot hands to the fullest, Pasaol shot his Red Warriors over hapless University of Sto. Tomas, 96-91, on Saturday at the MOA Arena.

While his milestone mark still fell short against defending champion De La Salle University three days ago, his 32 points in this one proved to be more than enough for his team’s first win in seven games. “The boys really played hard. The effort we had against La Salle was here again and was awesome,” a beaming head coach Derrick Pumaren said.

Indeed, it wasn’t until the 23-year-old waxed hot in the second quarter that UE built up the separation they would keep until the final buzzer.

The two teams were going at it for the first 15 minutes before Pasaol scored 12 points, three triples and one three-point play, in the 18-2 surge that put his squad on top, 52-37.
