UAAP 86 WBB: Dalisay delivers in clutch as La Salle outlasts FEU in 2OT


De La Salle University avenged its first-round loss to Far Eastern University, escaping with an epic second overtime win, 73-70, to pump life to its UAAP Season 86 Women’s Basketball Tournament flickering Final Four hopes at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, Saturday.

The Lady Archers improved to 4-6, just 2.5 games behind fourth-running Ateneo de Manila University, with four games left.

“We needed to stay in the game, be smart, really want to win. Yung possession for possession game we need to be very good executing offensively while defensively, wanting the ball more than FEU and it showed during the last stops of the game,” said Lady Archers head coach Cholo Villanueva.

Josee Kaputu’s layup for FEU proved to be the final deadlock of the game in the second extra period.

Bea Dalisay then drained a three-pointer in the ensuing play to give La Salle the lead for good with 3:16 left, 69-66.

Although Kaputu and Shane Salvani provided buckets for the Lady Tamaraws, Luisa Dela Paz and Lee Sario produced the counters for the Lady Archers.

With 21.7 seconds remaining, Sario was fouled with her team ahead 72-70, splitting her free throws to leave it a one-possession game.

However, Salvani threw a bad pass inside that got intercepted by the Lady Archers, running away from FEU players to waste away the time as time expired.
