Pastrana, La Salle chop FEU down, remain in Final Four race

ANTIPOLO — La Salle kept its Final Four hopes alive as it cut Far Eastern University down to size, 63-47, Saturday in the UAAP Season 82 Women’s Basketball Tournament at Ynares Center here.

Kent Pastrana was sensational with her 23 points, seven rebounds, and four steals to lead the Lady Archers to their third straight win.

Chuchi Paraiso also joined the parade with 11 points on 2-of-7 shooting from beyond the arc, alongside eight rebounds, while Nigerian center Maureen Okoli had seven points, 11 boards, and three blocks in the victory.

“Credit to the girls cause we’re fighting for survival,” said coach Cholo Villanueva. “The way they’re playing, there’s a sense of urgency and they’ll do whatever they can to fight for that slot.”

La Salle ascended to a 6-5 slate while dealing FEU its third loss in four outings to drop to 7-5.

With Pastrana leading the way, the Lady Archers soon jumped to a 31-22 halftime lead as they frustrated the Lady Tamaraws with their press.

The lead swelled to as high as 28, 57-29, with a pair of Lee Sario freebies late in the third frame.

No one from FEU got to double-digits, with Lai Adriano topscoring for her side with nine points.

Clare Castro was limited to just seven points, despite still hauling down nine rebounds and rejecting three shots.

The Scores:

DLSU 63 — Pastrana 23, Paraiso 11, Okoli 7, Sario 7, Torres 6, Quingco 5, Revillosa 4, Binaohan 0, Castillo 0, Dalisay 0, Espinas 0, Jajurie 0, Jimenez 0, Malarde 0.
