Ato Ular and Larry Muyang took turns in pounding the Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers, leading the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights’ dominant 81-61 win, Tuesday evening at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
Ular had 17 points and seven rebounds while Muyang added 10 points and five rebounds.
Muyang though figured in a collision with Chester Jungco midway through the final frame.
“Siguro may factor yun, yung natamaan si Larry. Pangit sa isang player na nasasaktan yung kasama nila at naaapektuhan din ang game nila,” opined Letran coach Bonnie Tan.
That’s when Ular sparked a game-breaking 14-2 run that turned a six-point lead into a 75-57 cushion late.
Besides Ular, Fran Yu also contributed 16 points, five rebounds, and three assists while Bonbon Battiller added 13 points, five rebounds, and three assists to lift Letran to a 7-3 slate and tie Lyceum in the standings.
JRU, who dropped to 3-7, was led by John Delos Santos’ all-around 14-point, five-rebound, five-assists, three-steal, and two-block outing. Fellow rookie John Amores added 11 markers.
Letran looks to make it three in a row when it faces the Mapua Cardinals on Friday, September 13 at 2:00 pm. JRU, on the other hand, takes on the EAC Generals on the same day.
CSJL 81 – Ular 17, Yu 16, Batiller 13, Muyang 10, Caralipio 6, Reyson 5, Ambohot 4, Balanza 4, Balagasay 2, Javillonar 2, Sangalang 2, Guarino 0, Olivario 0.
