Jollo Go was on fire all game long and scored 33 points as La Salle gunned down Lyceum, 79-77, in the 2018 Milcu Sports Basketball presented by Got Skills Adidas Summer Showcase on Tuesday at the Trinity University of Asia Gym in Quezon City.

Go did much of his damage from deep, accounting for all but three of the Green Archers’ 10 makes from distance. That hot shooting proved to be the difference between the two teams in a close contest.

The incoming fourth-year guard also added five rebounds and two steals to propel La Salle to its first win in three tries.

Backstopping Go was Errol Bongay, Taft’s recruit from Perpetual, who had 16 points and eight rebounds as well as sophomore sniper Gabe Capacio who chipped in nine markers of his own.

The Pirates were led by Nino Ibanez and Casper Pericas who pumped in 14 and 13 points, respectively.

This loss comes on the heels of their 88-43 triumph over still winless University of Asia & the Pacific last Sunday at the FEU Gym in Morayta.

Lyceum counted four players in double-digits then, with Ibanez showing the way with 16 points. Yang Remulla and Germy Mahinay then chimed in 15 and 14 markers, respectively.

Splitting their two games in three days, the Pirates now stand at 2-2.

Meanwhile, UE edged out FEU in a grind-out game, 50-47.

The Red Warriors were able to improve their record to 3-1 despite not having one player in double-digits. Mark Maloles topped the scoring column for them with seven points.

Prized rookie L-Jay Gonzales paced the now 1-2 Tamaraws with 16 points and nine rebounds.

The Summer Showcase resumes on Thursday at the Trinity University Gym with Arellano staking its spotless slate against NU.
