NCAA Season 94: Amores rescues Light Bombers
John Amores carried Jose Rizal University past Mapua University in the NCAA Season 94 juniors basketball competition.

John Amores was at the right place at the right time to lift Jose Rizal University in the NCAA Season 94 juniors basketball competition Thursday.

Amores scored the game-winning putback in the last six seconds in the Light Bombers’ 74-73 win over Mapua University at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Down by two points in the closing seconds, Amores grabbed the offensive rebound after Thomas Vasquez’s shot was blocked and drilled the crucial basket.

JRU forced a turnover on the other end to seal the win.

John Delos Santos finished with 19 points, Amores had 13 markers and 19 boards while Vasquez scored 13 for the Light Bombers, who solidified their hold of the fourth spot with a 7-5 win-loss card.

The Red Robins absorbed their third loss in 11 games despite the 25-point effort of Dan Arches.

Meanwhile, Lyceum of the Philippines University defeated Emilio Aguinaldo College, 72-66.

The Junior Pirates improved to 5-7 while the Brigadiers were buried deeper at the cellar with 2-9 mark.
