University of Santo Tomas continued right where it left off in the UAAP, walloping NCAA champion Colegio de San Juan de Letran, 95-65, in the 2019 PCCL: UAAP-NCAA Challenge, Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

Already up 26-17 to end the opening stanza, the Growling Tigers unleashed a huge 29-point second quarter while limiting the Knights to just 11 points to put the game away for good.

“Maaga kaming nag-umpisa. The objective is we have to pick up where we left off last season. Kung ano yung inalisan namin na level ng laro namin, doon kami dapat magumpisa,” said UST head coach Aldin Ayo.

UST’s lead would go up to 39 points, 89-50, after a basket from former DLSU Green Archer Christian Manaytay.

CJ Cansino led UST with 13 points, four rebounds, three steals, and two assists while Soulemane Chabi-yo finished with a double-double line of 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Jun Asuncion led UST’s bench with 11 points.

Things got chippy in the endgame that saw UST’s Mark Nonoy, Ira Bataller, Ian Herrera, and Manaytay all foul out.

Kurt Reyson and Pao Javillonar had 12 points each for the Knights. Fran Yu was still rusty, finishing with just 10 points on 3-of-10 shooting to go along with seven turnovers.

Jeff Napa was the designated head coach of Letran as Bonnie Tan was not in attendance.
