Pingoy downplays record-setting performance in win over FEU

Adamson guard Jerie Pingoy had just set the single game assists and steals record in the UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball tournament, but he was quick to defer his success to his teammates’ play.

Pingoy orchestrated the Soaring Falcons’ offense in their 95-79 win over Far Eastern University as he finished with 10 points, 10 assists, and three steals with the two latter figures the highest marks in the tournament so far.

“I’m just going to do my job, my role as a point guard,” said Pingoy in Filipino Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena. “I’ll just do the little things, and it’s a good thing my teammates made their shots so the credit goes to them.”

Pingoy terrorized FEU’s defense with pinpoint passing, most of which went to Jerrick Ahanmisi who had 17 points in the game, nine coming off from beyond the arc.

The point guard’s spirited play allowed the Falcons to establish their dominance as early as the first quarter when they took a 21-8 lead.
