Mark Dyke pounded in 27 points to lead four other De La Salle University Green Archers in double-digits, as they destroyed still-winless University of Asia & the Pacific Dragons by 96 points, 129-33, in the 2018 Milcu Sports Basketball presented by Got Skills Summer Showcase, last Friday at the Buddha Care Gym in Quezon City.
Dyke, who is back with the team after trying his luck with FEU late last year, imposed his will right from tip-off and fronted the Green Archers’ 31-10 charge in the opening period. He also wound up with five rebounds, three steals, and two assists.
The Taft-based team showed no mercy throughout, and held the Dragons scoreless in the final frame while also scoring 34 points at the other end.
In all, La Salle made good on 62 percent of their field goals — more than double the attempts of their opponents, 94-41.
Twin towers Taane Samuel and Justine Baltazar collected 16 points each and combined for nine rebounds and two blocks to help the Green Archers score their second straight win, which evens their record to 2-2.
Meanwhile, the National University Bulldogs put the first blemish on the once-spotless slate of the Arellano University Chiefs with a 72-66 decision, last Thursday at the Trinity University of Asia Gym also in QC.
Versatile wing Jayson Puray and floor leader Chami Diputado showed the way with 13 and 12 points, respectively, as the Bulldogs improved to 2-2.
The now 3-1 Chiefs were paced by Michael Canete who had 11 points and eight rebounds.
In other results, the Lyceum of the Philippines University Pirates sailed away from the University of the East Red Warriors in the fourth period for a 78-62 win. The two teams are now tied for fourth in the standings at 2-2
Also on even ground with the Pirates and the Red Warriors is the Far Eastern University Tamaraws which gored the Manuel L. Quezon University Stallions for a 69-56 victory.
The Summer Showcase resumes on Tuesday at the Trinity University Gym La Salle going for a third win in a row against MLQU.
