Tamaraw bigs key in late rally, as Falcons fail to fly late
Terrence Romeo's hot shooting sparked the Far Eastern University Tamaraws early, but it was Anthony Hargrove and Arvie Bringas who carried them late against the Adamson University Soaring Falcons, 76-68, Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, in the 75th season of the UAAP.
The Falcons were held scoreless between 4:56 and 0:48 in the final quarter, allowing FEU to outscore them, 16-3, snatching the lead and the win.
Terrence Romeo led FEU with a career-high 27 points, including 16 in the second quarter, along with seven three-pointers. Roger Pogoy added 13 points, nine rebounds and five assists. RR Garcia notched 13 points as well, along with six assists.
"Slow start nga eh, buti nalang na-convert namin yung mga threes namin laban sa kanilang zone," said FEU coach Bert Flores, speaking of Adamson's smaller line-up.
"Binigyan ako ng chance ni coach na makabawi [sa slow start namin]," said forward Arvie Bringas, who was crucial in the clutch for the Tams, where he scored all his seven points.
