UAAP 85 BBB: Felipe, Mongcopa tow FEU-D to Final Four

Far Eastern University-Diliman scored a 90-77 win over Ateneo to secure a place in the Final Four Sunday in the UAAP Season 85 high school boys basketball tournament at the Filoil EcoOil Centre.

Luke Felipe scored 21 points, Kirby Mongcopa came through with 15 points, eight boards, and two steals in a reserve role. Meanwhile, VJ Pre and Dwyne Miranda each scored 12 points for the Baby Tamaraws, who also rose to 9-2.

The victory also allowed FEU-Diliman to move in a tie with titleholder Nazareth School of National University in second place, making the twice-to-beat race interesting.

“At least nandoon kami sa standings. We have two remaining games before NU, I hope maging consistent naman kami sa ginagawa naming tama,. Yun lang ang kailangan kong idiin,” said Baby Tamaraws coach Allan Albano.

Mat Edding had 16 points, eight boards, and six assists.

The league-leading Adamson University extended its winning streak to 10 games following an 83-60 rout of University of the East.

Coach Mike Fermin is taking things step by step for the Baby Falcons, who have yet to lose a game since dropping their season opener to the Bullpups.

“Every game, we have small goals na tsina-challenge ko sila. Small lang naman because the bigger goal is to win. Kaya kami, quarter by quarter, we limit our turnovers,” said Fermin. “Siguro, those little things, nagiging malaki iyon sa dulo dahil kapag na-accomplish nila small goals na iyon, tataas ang kumpiyansa.”

Kristian Porter had 28 points and 24 rebounds while LeBron Nieto chipped in 24 points, six assists and four boards for the Blue Eagles.
