De La Salle University took down archrival Ateneo de Manila University, 75-67, in the UAAP Season 85 women’s basketball tournament at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Sunday.

After Jhazmin Joson pulled the Blue Eagles to within three, 70-67, after a steal and a bucket with 1:50 to go.

But Lee Sario put the finishing touches for the Lady Archers for the victory.

“For us it’s about pride. Again, we can lose to any team but we don’t want to lose to Ateneo maybe because I was from an era na that was the thing,” said La Salle coach Cholo Villanueva.
