San Beda University counted five players in double-digits in a 46-point demolition of University of Perpetual Help, 102-56, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre.
AC Soberano finished what Donald Tankoua started as both players wound up with 15 points in the Red Lions’ sixth straight win in their title defense in the NCAA 95 Men’s Basketball Tournament. "Credit to my boys for the win. They wanted to prove something," head coach Boyet Fernandez said.
The defending champions started strong, shooting the lights out for 30 points in the opening salvo.
Tankoua took charge from that timeframe, pounding in eight of his output while Clint Doliguez and Evan Nelle also added five markers apiece.
In all, the San Beda starters took the fight out of all of their opponents by a score of 30-17 after the first quarter.
The Altas would not be able to make a game out of it as Soberano caught fire in the final frame, scoring all of his output and by his lonesome, nearly matching their opponents in scoring. "AC made the most of his threes in the fourth. Hopefully, tuloy-tuloy na rin yung kumpyansa niya," coach Boyet said.
The Red Lions' lead went as high as 52, 102-50, inside the last three minutes.
They would not be able to get a make the rest of the way, but still wound up with the biggest margin of victory thus far in the tournament.
For Perps, Edgar Charcos and Tonton Peralta each scored 13 points. With their defense missing in action all throughout, though, they absorbed their fourth loss in the last five games and now stand at 2-5.
