Parks, Mbe push NU past UST

MANILA, Philippines — National University survived a foul-plagued 4th quarter to beat University of Santo Tomas, 71-67, in the 76th UAAP men’s basketball tournament Wednesday, July 10, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Two-time MVP Ray Parks and Cameroonian big man Jean Mbe combined for 37 points to lead the Bulldogs’ conquest of the Growling Tigers in a clash of preseason favorites.

Kevin Ferrer paced UST with 20 points but the Tigers obviously missed the presence of gunslinger Jeric Teng, who injured his right shoulder late in the second quarter and did not return. –
