Gomez de Liaño bros 'scolded' for not making free throws
The Gomez de Liaño brothers' free throw display was not obviously their greatest aspect Sunday, as the brothers combined just to shoot 2/10 from the 15-foot line, good for 20-percent.

The Gomez de Liaño brothers were simply unstoppable in UP's close 88-87 win against the NU Bulldogs at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum Sunday afternoon.

Juan led the Maroons in scoring with 20, but added eight rebounds and six assists for his trouble. Meanwhile, his older and taller brother Javi, added a career-high 19 markers, eight boards, and five dimes.

Both were dominant in every facet of the floor in that win -- except for the charity stripe.

The siblings' free throw display was not obviously their greatest aspect Sunday, as the brothers combined just to shoot 2/10 from the 15-foot line, good for 20-percent.

If not for JV Gallego's costly error in the dying seconds of the game, Javi's two missed free throws under eight seconds left could have cost UP the win.

The boys' dismal performance caught the attention of their parents, who jokingly reminded their children to practice their foul shots. 

Even teammate Bright Akhuetie joined the fun, taking a swipe at the brothers' supposed lapses in the fourth quarter.

Don't forget to bend your knees, kids.
