UAAP: DLSU gains share of top spot in women's basketball
La Salle, seventh placers last season, tied idle Ateneo for the lead at 2-0.
De La Salle University gained a piece of the top spot while Adamson University earned its first victory under new coach Ewon Arayi on Wednesday in the UAAP Season 81 women's basketball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Camille Claro and Marie Arciga each scored 12 points while Angel Quingco had a double-double effort of 10 points and 17 rebounds to go with two blocks as the Lady Archers held off University of the East, 64-61.

Meanwhile, Nathalie Prado had 20 points and 12 rebounds as the Lady Falcons halted Far Eastern University's two-game winning streak with a 59-55 decision.

La Salle, seventh placers last season, tied idle Ateneo for the lead at 2-0.

Adamson, for its part, improved to a 1-1 card.

The Lady Warriors, who drew 14 points and seven rebounds from Princess Ganade, stumbled to their third straight defeat, matching their total elimination round losses last season.

Veteran Clare Castro flirted a triple-double with 19 points, 18 rebounds and eight blocks but her efforts were not enough to bail out the Lady Tamaraws from absorbing their first loss of the season.
