RIGHT BACK AT YOU.
University of the East escaped with a 69-68 victory over De La Salle University to finish third in the first round of eliminations in the UAAP 80 Women's Basketball Tournament on Saturday at the MOA Arena.
The Lady Archers tried to escape with the victory but Johanna Arciga missed her potential game-winning putback in the dwindling seconds.
Love Sto. Domingo had 17 points and 15 rebounds while Eunique Chan and Joyce Francisco each had 13 points for the Lady Warriors who exacted revenge on the team which booted them out of the semifinals a season ago.
UE will enter the second round with a 5-2 card behind defending champion National University (7-0) and second-running University of Sto. Tomas (6-1).
The Lady Archers dropped to 2-5 in a tie with Ateneo at the sixth spot.
