Ry Dela Rosa, JRU spoil Kent Salado’s Arellano sendoff

Ry Dela Rosa played the spoiler role during Kent Salado’s final game with Arellano, leading Jose Rizal University to a 77-73 win over Perpetual in the NCAA Season 95 Seniors Basketball Tournament, Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

Down by as much nine points, Dela Rosa powered JRU’s comeback, draining a booming triple with 48.3 ticks to give the Heavy Bombers a 73-71 lead.

A comedy of errors by JRU then led to Rence Alcoriza’s free throws that knotted things up. Still, Agem Miranda and Dela Rosa would not be denied, knocking down big free throws to close out the game.

“Sa akin, sinabi ko sa kanila yesterday if you can finish the season on a high note para maganda baon natin for next year,” said JRU head coach Louie Gonzalez. “Alam ko marami na pinagdaanan ‘yung team, pero this guy beside me, tinuturo ko sa kanya, sinasabi ko sa kanya ‘You need to take over’. Nangyari sa game na ‘to.

“I’m happy for Ry at I’m happy sa players ko.”

Dela Rosa led JRU with 21 points to give JRU a 5-13 slate.

Miranda and Thoams Vaquez added 13 markers each, while Ronnie Aguilar chipped in 10 points and nine rebounds.

Arellano, who ended their campaign at last place with a 4-14 slate, was led by Kent Salado’s 22-point, seven-assist, five-rebound, and two-steal outing. Alcoriza and Justin Arana had 20 points and 12 rebounds, respectively.

The Scores:

JRU 77 – Dela Rosa 21, Miranda 13, Vasquez 13, Aguilar 10, Jungco 6, Arenal 4, Amores 4, Dionisio 2, Abaoag 2, Macatangay 2, Delos Santos 0
