Paul Lintag on Oct 30, 2018 07:05 AM
Super rookie CJ Cansino continues to impress for the UST Growling Tigers.
The UAAP will take a break once again but never fear because the stories, and the numbers will keep on coming.
So hopefully, you guys don't miss the league that much because things are about to get more intense as the Final Four nears.
Here's your fix of By the Numbers to get through your day, UAAP Season 81 will be right back after a couple of days.
Total points scored by UST super rookie in his triple-double performance against the UE Red Warriors.
Cansino added another 14 rebounds and 10 assists in the win. It's only the second triple-double this season and only the fourth since 2003.
Cansino is the only rook to score a triple-double in at least 15 years.
Total three-pointers drilled by UST sniper Marvin Lee.
Lee torched the Red Warriors from beyond the arc and is only the second UST player to score that many treys in eight years or since former captain Jeric Fortuna in 2010.
Lee buried seven treys in the first half alone.
Total points scored by Lee in that electric performance vs. UE.
The diminutive point guard is the first Growling Tiger to score at least 30 since Ed Daquioag dropped a career-high 34 in Season 78.
Consecutive wins by the mighty NU Lady Bulldogs, setting an all-time record in the UAAP.
The Lady Bulldogs beat UST over the weekend to win their 74th straight game, breaking the previous record of 73 set by the Adamson softball dynasty.
Narrowest margin of victory for the Lady Bulldogs in their historic 74-game winning streak.
The last time NU was truly challenged was in July 19, 2014 when the Lady Bulldogs beat the Growling Tigresses, 62-60.
Largest margin of victory for NU in its 74-game run.
The Lady Bulldogs demolished UP just recently, scoring a masterful 106-49 win last Sept. 30.
