University of Santo Tomas leaned on Erika Danganan’s heroics to escape De La Salle-Zobel, 50-48, and claim the last finals berth in the UAAP Season 82 Girls’ Basketball Tournament, Saturday at the Paco Arena.

UST will face the undefeated Adamson University in the best-of-three finals, slated to begin on March 6, Friday, at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Knotted at 48-all, Danganan received the ball at the top of the arc, fake handoff and drove to the basket for the game-winner with nine seconds left.

With one final chance to tie or grab the win, Luisa Dela Paz’s three-pointer was blocked by Danganan to ice the victory.

“Yung both hamstrings niya, masakit, may iniinda yung bata, pero ang maganda sa kanya, mature na siya maglaro kaya naiangat niya kami sa panalo,” UST head coach Ford Grajales on Danganan.

Danganan powered the Junior Growling Tigresses with 13 points, three rebounds and a block to end the eliminations at 4-2. Their two losses both came from Adamson.

Rachel Lacayanga backstopped her with nine markers and 10 boards while Micka Sison chipped in eight points.

Jeehan Ahmed carried the fight for DLSZ with 18 points, 13 rebounds, four blocks, three assists, and a steal.Tiebreaker Times Danganan lifts UST to UAAP 82 Girls' Basketball Finals as Padilla drops 57 in Adamson elims sweep ADMU AdU Basketball DLSU News UAAP UST  UST Girls Basketball UAAP Season 82 Girls' Basketball UAAP Season 82 Nina Pohen Ford Grajales Erika Danganan DLSZ Girls Basketball Crisnalyn Padilla Ateneo Girls Basketball Andrea Sarmiento Adamson Girls Basketball

Later in the day, the Baby Lady Falcons completed a six-game elimination sweep after a 71-point annihilation of the winless Ateneo de Manila University, 109-38.

Crisnalyn Padilla had herself a game for the ages with 57 points on 27-of-58 clip, on top of five rebounds, five assists, and two steals.

Nina Pohen added 12 markers while Katrina Agojo got 10 points on a perfect 5-of-5 shooting along with 16 rebounds and four dimes.
