Filoil: Tamayo, UP overpower Perpetual late for second win

Carl Tamayo continued to show no signs of fatigue, powering University of the Philippines to its second straight victory in Group B of the 2022 Filoil Ecooil Preseason Cup by way of a wire-to-wire 75-64 win over University of Perpetual Help System DALTA, Monday in San Juan City.

Tamayo tallied a game-high 21 points on 9-of-10 shooting from the charity stripe. He also had nine rebounds in almost 30 minutes of action, plus two assists.

At the 8:38 mark of the fourth frame, Shawn Orgo cut the deficit to five, 54-59. But the Fighting Maroons rallied a 19-4 run to stretch the lead to its highest at 14, 73-59.

With 1:31 minute left in the clock, Orgo drove a layup turning a 10-point deficit into, 63-73.

Tamayo, though, answered back with a two-point jumper gaining a 12-point lead, 75-63. That eventually led to UP’s second straight win while time ran out for Perpetual.

“Just pretty much keep doing kung anong pinapractice namin. Actually this stretch for us, we played five straight games. Actually, it’s six games in five days,” said assistant coach Mo Gingerich.

“But ayun, so pretty much we don’t have practice in between the games, just viewing. So ‘yung mga corrections namin from the past games, that’s what we’re trying to work on, both offensively and defensively,” he added.

Every Fighting Maroon fielded scored in the game.

JD Cagulangan and Terrence Fortea had eight points apiece. Cagulangan also added three assists and three boards, while Fortea finished with three rebounds and one assist.

Bismarck Lina topped UP on the boards with eight to go with seven points and one dime.
