UAAP 85 BBB: NSNU wastes Porter’s 33-point double-double for third win

Nazareth School of Nazareth University extended its perfect run to three games with a 79-63 romp of Ateneo in the UAAP Season 85 high school boys basketball tournament at the Filoil EcoOil Centre Sunday.

Reinhard Jumamoy had 16 points, seven rebounds, and four assists. Meanwhile, RJ Colonia’s all-around outing of 14 points, 11 boards, eight steals, and seven assists also keyed the Bullpups’ victory.

It was NSNU’s 30th consecutive win since 2018, and coach Kevin de Castro felt satisfied with the way his troops performed.

“Yung game namin kahit papaano, may nakikitang improvement. Positivity nandoon sa bench namin,” said De Castro, as the Bullpups outscored the Blue Eagles’ reserves, 31-12.

Earlier, Mark Llemit produced a double-double outing of 20 points and 15 rebounds, nine on the offensive end, as University of Santo Tomas overpowered UP Integrated School, 90-64.

The Tiger Cubs rose to 2-1 while dealing the Junior Fighting Maroons their second straight defeat.

NSNU is looking forward to playing as one cohesive unit as the season goes by.

“Siguro yung team defense pa. Usually, those little things yung mga help, ganoon. Kasi kailangan naming ma-improve iyon especially kapag makakalaban namin mga malakas na team,” said De Castro.

Ateneo, which missed LeBron Nieto who was sidelined with a right ankle injury, dropped to 1-2 in a tie with UPIS.

Kristian Porter came through with 33 points, 12 rebounds, three blocks, and two steals to lead the Blue Eagles.

The Tiger Cubs were focused to bounce back from last Wednesday’s 58-84 loss to the Bullpups.

“Ang sabi ko sa kanila, one game at a time. Yung UP, hindi natin puwedeng biruin,” said UST coach Jinino Manansala, using the win as a good springboard heading to the team’s next assignment against Ateneo.

Kobe Demisana tallied 21 points, 12 boards, five steals, and four blocks for the Junior Fighting Maroons.
