Bauzon lifts Diliman College to 3-0 as University of Batangas pounds NCBA


JR Bauzon scored 20 points, including two clutch free throws, as the Diliman College streaked to their third win with a 72-66 win over the Olivarez College, yesterday in the PG Flex Linoleum-UCBL at the Olivarez College gym in Parañaque City.

The vastly-improving 6-foot-4 forward also had 10 in another solid all-around performance in just 27 minutes of action for the Blue Dragons, who are bidding to become the first back-to-back champions of the league, now in its fourth season.

The Sea Lions slipped to 1-2 despite the 32-point explosion of John Lester Maurillo.

Not to be left out were the University of Batangas, who also nailed their third straight win by crushing the National College of Business and Arts, 107-83, thanks to a deadly third quarter attack that saw the Brahmans outscore the Wildcats, 30-12.

Seven UB players finished in double figures, with Melvin Ricaña and Cameroonian center Kenne Yemeli scoring 20 points each.

Meantime, the Philippine Christian University-Dasmariñas finally barged into the win-column, trouncing the Technological Institute of the Philippines, 90-69, in the first game.

Sophomore Sandee Diez came off the bench to produce 15 points, seven boards, and two assists. Meanwhile, the 6-foot-8 Zahul Yousseff of Ivory Coast tallied 14 points and 12 rebounds as the Dolphins snapped a two-game losing run in the eight-team tournament.

Carl Jasper Morillo added 12 points off the bench. Starters Kenneth Cristobal, Keith Peralta, and Congolese 6-foot-6 Lucien Mulamba all posted 10 points each.

The Engineers made only two of 20 tries from the three-point zone that underscored their anemic shooting, finishing with 23-of-68 shooting from the field. The Dolphins also out-rebounded them, 52-41, and had more assists, 23-14, and steals, 10-7.
