Once again, Alejandro plays hero in NU's title defense
LEAN ON ME. J-jay Alejandro rescues NU from elimination once again.

Last week, NU head coach Eric Altamirano said that J-jay Alejandro was bound to have more explosive games. "Puputok pa yan, it's only a matter of time," he said.

With that being said, Alejandro sure knows when to have those big games as he rescued the defending champion Bulldogs from elimination once again after a sensational fourth quarter performance in NU's 81-73 victory over La Salle.

Alejandro scored 25 points, 17 in the last 10 minutes including 14 straight, to help the Bulldogs stay alive in the Final Four race. "Kailangan mag-step up. Kung ano maitutulong sa team gagawin ko na," Alejandro said.

He added, "Nakaka-kita lang din ako ng openings eh, right place at the right time."

With two more must-win games on the horizon, it should not be that much of a surprise if the Bulldogs lean on Alejandro more.
