Lady Archers shoot down struggling Lady Maroons in blowout win



The De la Salle University Lady Archers sailed to their third consecutive in the UAAP Season 77 Women’s Basketball tournament after a staggering 66-31 win over the University of the Philippines Lady Maroons, Thursday at the Blue Eagle Gym.

Last year’s champions La Salle pulled away as early as the first quarter, taking a 17-7 lead in the first period of the game. A re-energized UP squad would fire back in the second quarter, but failed to match the Lady Archers’ assault. With a 36-19 lead at halftime, the Archers suppressed all attempts by UP to mount a comeback, holding the Maroons to a lowly 12-point output in the second half.

Alyanna Ong had 11 points and 7 rebounds for La Sallem while Steph Vegara also added 10 points. Bea Daez led all UP scorers with 6 points. The Lady Archers remain unbeaten in the women’s tournament, while the Lady Maroons have yet to register their first win.
