JJ Caspe, Don Tabol pound 6-man CEU, lifts UB to school-best start in UCBL

University of Batangas took full advantage of Centro Escolar University’s six-man rotation and romped to a 112-86 win for its fourth straight win in the PG Flex Linoleum-Universities and Colleges Basketball League Thursday at the Olivarez College gym in Parañaque City.

Working behind their ‘fast and furious’ game anchored on JJ Caspe and Don Tabol, the Brahmans outscored the huffing and puffing Scorpions, 44-19, in the third quarter in posting their biggest win and best start since the birth of the league four years ago.

The win likewise enabled the Brahmans to grab the solo lead with idle and defending champion Diliman College slipping to second at 3-0 and CEU dropping into a share for third to fourth places with Lyceum of the Philippines-Batangas at 2-1.

The Pirates, on the other hand, banked heavily on the hot hands of Aliane Lapasaran to demolish the Technological Institute of the Philippines Engineers, 79-69.

The 5-foot-10 Lapasaran exploded for 27 points on a respectable 12-of-22 field goal shooting for the Pirates, who nailed their second win in three games.

In a show of force, five UB players scored 14 points or more with Tabol and Caspi finishing with 21 and 20, respectively.

CEU showed up with only six players for the second time as the team was playing a semis series in the PBA D-League.

Lapasaran did almost everything on the court as he tallied nine assists, seven steals and six rebounds in almost a no-relief job.
