Kevin Quiambao’s monster line lifts NU to 2-0 as Ateneo escapes La Salle-Zobel

Defending champion National University-Nazareth School and Ateneo High School stayed perfect after beating separate foes in the UAAP Season 82 Boys’ Basketball Tournament at the Paco Arena on Saturday. 

The Bullpups fended off the University of Santo Tomas Tiger Cubs, 89-77; meanwhile, the Blue Eaglets escaped De La Salle-Zobel Junior Archers, 81-78.

Kevin Quiambao was dominant for NU with 27 points — making all but one of his 13 attempts from the field — alongside 10 rebounds and three blocks. Terrence Fortea added 19 points, while Gerry Abadiano chipped in 15 markers, seven boards, and three dimes.

“Ang dami pa namin kailangang ayusin. Nagagawa naman namin ang plays namin pero hindi namin nagagawa in a consistent basis,” said Bullpups coach Goldwin Monteverde, as his squad moved to 2-0.

NU used a 21-11 second period to turn a 16-13 affair to a 37-24 lead at halftime.

The Bullpups, anchored by twin towers Carl Tamayo and Quiambao, showed their might in the paint, outscoring the Tiger Cubs, 58-36, while also outrebounding them, 58-43.

Rojan Montemayor paced the Tiger Cubs (1-1) with 24 points and seven rebounds. Jacob Cortez and Jan Salazar poured in 19 and 15 markers, respectively.
