NCAA Season 94: Red Robins repeat over Greenies
Mapua University reasserted its mastery over CSB-La Salle Greenhills in the NCAA Season 94 juniors basketball competition elimination round.

Mapua University completed its elimination round sweep of defending champion CSB-La Salle Greenhills, 93-87, to solidify its hold of the second spot in the NCAA Season 94 juniors basketball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan Tuesday.

The Red Robins captured its ninth win in 12 games while handing the Greenies, who remained at solo top spot, their second defeat after 12 outings in a rematch of last year’s Finals. 

Dan Arches and Jonnel Policarpio led the charge of Mapua with 23 and 21 points, respectively.

Paolo Hernandez finished with 13 points, Clint Escamis had 11 while Roseler Sarias registered 10 for the Red Robins, who held off CSB-LSGH’s second half run after a shaky start.

Mapua built a 19-point cushion in the first half and kept their safe distance in the last two quarters to stave off the Greenies’ repeated comeback attempts.

Joel Cagulangan came up short of a double-double with 22 points and nine rebounds while Joshua David got 19 markers and 12 boards for CSB-LSGH.

Meanwhile, Arellano University defeated University of Perpetual Help, 70-66, to tie its victim at 5-6 win-loss slate.

Romuel Junsay and Lars Sunga posted 12 points each while Brian Javier got 10 for the Braves.

Yukihiro Kawamura had 21 points while Emman Gaiman had 19 for the Junior Altas.
