Warriors win back-to-back for first time in season

Alvin Pasaol was nowhere to be found for University of the East in the final frame on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum.

His other teammates, however, made their presence felt.

The Red Warriors finally flashed total team effort as they pulled off a shocker against National University, 90-77, for their first winning streak in the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

After averaging 40.5 points in his last two games, Pasaol only had 11 points this time around. “He had four fouls so I felt there’s no need for us to use Alvin. I had confidence that the other guys will step up,” a more than satisfied head coach Derrick Pumaren said.

He then continued, “’Di nila ako pinahiya.”

His team, however, didn’t need much from him as guys likes Nick Abanto, Mark Maloles, and Mark Olayon took care of business in the final frame. “They gave Alvin much-needed rest. They were able to deliver and hold the fort for the team,” Pumaren said.
