UAAP 85 BBB: Peter Rossillo takes charge as Adamson deals FEU-D first loss

Adamson University nipped Far Eastern University-Diliman, 73-71, for its second straight win Sunday in the UAAP Season 85 high school boys tournament Sunday at the Filoil EcoOil Centre.

Peter Rosillo scattered 12 of his 17 points in the payoff period, including the go-ahead lay-up in the final 24.8 seconds that turned out to be the Baby Falcons’ winning moment.

The Baby Tamaraws tried to turn things around, but John Ray Pasaol missed a jumper on the next possession and could not capitalize on their opponents’ free throw woes late in the game.

It was FEU-Diliman’s first loss after beating its foes by an average winning margin of 35.5 points.

“Ang sabi ko sa kanila, to be able to beat that team…that good of a team with a good coaching staff, with a good system, kailangan defensively we have to compete,” said Baby Falcons coach Mike Fermin.

Pasaol had 22 points, eight boards, seven assists, and two steals while VJ Pre added 14 points and nine rebounds for the Baby Tamaraws

Adamson University moved in a tie with University of Santo Tomas and FEU-Diliman from second to fourth spots.

In the last game, Ryhie Melecio tallied 26 points and 23 rebounds as De La Salle-Zobel entered the win column with a 72-58 dismantling of University of the East.

Coach Boris Aldeguer was pleased with the effort of the youthful Junior Archers, who are bracing for a Baby Tamaraws seeking to rebound from the narrow loss to the Baby Falcons on Wednesday.

“It’s a good win for us heading into our game against FEU,” said Aldeguer.
