UAAP 85 Men’s 3×3: Hanapi tows Adamson past UP, punches last semis berth

CALATAGAN, BATANGAS — Adamson University claimed the last Final Four ticket in Pool B of the UAAP Season 85 men’s 3×3 basketball after clipping University of the Philippines, 19-13, Thursday morning at the CaSoBe Resort here.

Didat Hanapi waxed hot with nine points including two deuces along with nine rebounds, while Jhon Calisay chimed in six points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal, and a block.

Una pa lang binigay na namin lahat kasi kahapon nagrelax kami versus La Salle. Ngayon pagpasok lahat kami aggressive agad,” said Hanapi.

Knotted at eight, Hanapi started the six unanswered points of Adamson with a layup and a deuce that beat the shot clock before Calisay and Ivan Maata added three more points.

Maata had three points while Wilfrey Magbuhos added a point and five rebounds.

Cyril Gonzales carried the fight for the Fighting Maroons with nine points on 6-of-17 shooting from the field, four rebounds, and four steals, but lacked backup.

Aldous Torculas only had three points but grabbed 11 rebounds, while Nicco Tan got a point. Gelo Canillas went scoreless.

The Soaring Falcons will face in the crossover semifinals later in the day Pool A top seed University of Santo Tomas, which defeated Ateneo de Manila University to complete the sweep of its group, 15-11.

Jamba Garing was effective for the Growling Tigers, providing eight points on a 4-of-5 clip from the field to go with seven rebounds.

“Stick pa rin kami sa defense namin at hindi kami bibitaw hanggang sa dulo,” said Garing on their mindset for the Final Four.

The final will also happen later in the day.
