UAAP 85 WBB: Adamson evens slate after wire-to-wire win vs FEU

Adamson University scored its second straight win in the UAAP Season 85 Women’s Basketball Tournament, romping Far Eastern University with a wire-to-wire 95-61 victory, Wednesday at UST Quadricentennial Pavillion in Espana, Manila.

The Lady Falcons previously absorbed losses to University of Santo Tomas and University of the Philippines to open their campaign. But this time, Adamson evened its slate after beating University of the East last Saturday and now FEU.

“Hindi namin siya tinuturi na talo. Iniisip na lang namin na learning experience yun,” said Adamson head coach Brian Gorospe. “Nagbukas siya nung opportunity sa amin na makita yung mga mali namin.”

Already holding an imposing 48-30 lead at the half against the Lady Tamaraws, the Lady Falcons pushed the pedal in the third canto. They limited their opponents to just nine points to increase their lead to 72-39.

Adamson’s lead ballooned to a high of 37 points in the early parts of the final stanza.

“Yun lang naman yung goal namin every game para sa sarili namin. We play for each other no matter what. We are just getting started and ngayon, mas nararamdaman na namin yung season,” said Gorospe as Adamson had 32 assists on their 37 field goal makes.

Moreover, the Lady Falcons outrebounded the Lady Tamaraws, 55-33.

Dindy Medina had an efficient game for Adamson, dropping 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting from the field and 6-of-6 from the foul stripe.

“Hindi po namin ito makukuha kung walang pagkakaisa. Yun lang po ang puhunan po namin, yung nagtitiwala sa isa’t isa,” said Medina, a rookie out of PCU-Cavite.

Rose Ann Diampos got 16 points with five assists and five steals. while Victoria Adeshina produced eight points and 10 rebounds.

FEU, who fell to 1-3 in the standings, was led by freshman Kyla Go with 12 points. Senior Princess Jumuad added 10 points and six steals, while Danica Pacio got nine points, seven rebounds, five steals, and four assists.

Tough will be the next match of Adamson as it will face defending champion National University on Saturday at 10:00AM. FEU takes on De La Salle University in the first game of the day at 8:00 AM. Both games will be played at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
