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.
