Salado-less Arellano downs Perpetual Help to stay in NCAA Final 4 hunt

MANILA, Philippines – Playing without injured guard Kent Salado, the Arellano University Chiefs still overpowered University of Perpetual Help, 62-52, to keep their Final 4 hopes alive in the NCAA Season 93 tournament on Thursday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The high-scoring Salado was ruled out for a month due to a right knee injury, but the Chiefs still had enough to win comfortably against a Perpetual Help squad that is already out of the running for a semifinals spot.

It was Arellano's third win in a row, putting them at 8-9 heading into their final game against Mapua University.

Meanwhile, the woeful Altas lost for the sixth straight time to drop to 4-12.

Big man Lervin Flores tallied 19 points, eight rebounds and four blocks, while Rence Alcoriza contributed 16 points and seven boards. Levi dela Cruz, who started in Salado's palce, had 11 points, four boards, and four dimes.
