John Bravo drops 54 points vs AMA, carries FCPC to top of UCSAA

BULACAN — First City Providential College was crowned as the 9th Universities, Colleges, and Schools Athletic Association (UCSAA) Seniors Basketball after taking down AMA University, 103-95, Monday at CSJDM Covered Court here.

John Matthew Bravo made sure that the Royal Eagles would not be embarrassed on their home floor by churning out a performance that will be remembered and talked about for a long time: 54 points, 15 rebounds, three steals, and two blocks — and the Most Valuable Player of the Finals award to boot.

FCPC nursed a slim 67-64 lead after three periods, but that was their cue to pour out all their remaining energy. Bravo sank three triples as part of his 15 points in a crushing 24-8 opening blast that resulted in the Royal Eagles’ biggest lead of 19 markers with five minutes left, 91-72.

AMA tried their best to fight back and managed to cut the gap to only six with 25 seconds remaining, 95-101. Unfortunately, time was not on their side.

The Royal Eagles dropped Game One at CSJDM, 66-84, last October 10. The wards of Coach of the Year RJ Decierdo regrouped to steal Game Two on the road, 74-72, a week later at the AMA-Quezon City campus.

Season MVP and Rookie of the Year Bravo did not do it alone. He had plenty of help, especially from Edjon Diaz, who put in five of his 15 points during their fourth period surge.

Mark De Castro had a double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds. Meanwhile, Game Two hero Neil Joshua Moralejo added 14 points, seven rebounds, and 10 assists.
