Mark Dyke continues to impress as La Salle pounds UE

Continuing to prove his worth, Mark Dyke led the De La Salle University Green Archers to their third win in a row in the 2018 Milcu Sports Basketball presented by Got Skills Summer Showcase, at the expense of the University of the East Red Warriors, 52-40, last Tuesday at the Trinity University Gym in Quezon City.

The incoming second-year forward, who is back with the team after trying his luck in FEU late last year, imposed his will all throughout and outmuscled defenders Shannon Gagate and Reymark Acuno en route to a 17-point, 18-rebound double-double.

La Salle took until the third quarter to get going, with transferee guard Jordan Bartlett providing the spark.

With Bartlett setting the table and Dyke finishing things, the Green Archers outscored the Red Warriors, 28-11, in the second half to improve their standing to 3-2.

Sparkplug guard Bartlett wound up with nine points, while backcourt partner Donn Lim chipped in eight markers of his own.

The Red Warriors were paced by big man Acuno who collected 12 points and eight rebounds. They now stand at 4-3.

Meanwhile, in a showdown between well-stocked programs, the National University Bulldogs edged out the Lyceum of the Philippines University Pirates, 71-69.

Former UAAP Juniors champion Karl Penano showed the way with 18 points and six rebounds, as the Bulldogs rose to joint first-place at 4-2. Versatile wings Mike Malonzo and Robert Minerva flanked him with a combined 21 markers and 13 boards.

The 5-3 Pirates had their three-game win run halted despite the best efforts of sweet-shooting forward Ralph Tansingco, who had 16 points and five rebounds.
