NU-NS Bullpups clinch playoff berth as FEU-D locks down AHS in UAAP 82 Boys’ Basketball

National University-Nazareth School needed a huge fourth quarter surge to stave off Adamson University, racking up a 94-79 victory in the UAAP Season 82 High School Boys’ Basketball Tournament, Sunday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

With their ninth straight win in as many games, the reigning champions have clinched a playoff spot in the tournament.

The Bullpups had to dig deep to take this one unlike their first round encounter with the Baby Falcons last November 21 that saw them win 82-60.

“Alam naman namin na lalaban ang Adamson, pero buti nung fourth, nakuha ng bigs namin yung rhythm nila,” said Bullpups head coach Goldwin Monteverde.

Up by just three points, 69-66, with 8:26 left, NU unleashed a 12-2 blast to blow the game wide open. Big men Carl Tamayo and Kevin Quiambao did the work on the inside during the run while Terrence Fortea bombed a couple of triples.

Fortea led the way for the Bullpups with 25 points built on seven triples to go along with six assists and four rebounds.

“Si Terrence naman, kahit naging ganun yung first round, nandun pa rin yung trust namin,” Monteverde remarked about Fortea, who averaged 12.57 points in the opening round.

Tamayo tallied 18 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks while Quiambao added 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting, seven boards, four assists, and two steals. Reyland Torres added 15 points and eight rebounds.

After being limited to just eight points against Far Eastern University last week, leading MVP candidate John Figueroa bounced back with 16 points, nine rebounds, six assists, and three steals for Adamson, who dropped to 4-5 — creating a logjam with Ateneo at the fourth and fifth spot.
