No more meltdowns: La Salle survives FEU
La Salle survives FEU in a grueling matchup.

MANILA, Philippines — It smelled like deja vu for De La Salle University. That was until the Green Archers decided they’ve had enough of 4th quarter meltdowns.

La Salle displayed nerves of steel in weathering a Far Eastern University comeback and eked out a 75-66 victory in the 76th UAAP men’s basketball tournament on Sunday, August 18 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The Tamaraws almost erased yet another double-digit Archer lead in the final period with a 10-0 run early in the quarter, but Jeron Teng spearheaded a stern response by the Taft-based squad as they held off FEU.

La Salle improved to 5-4 while their victims dropped to 7-2.

Jason Perkins displayed hustle and energy in providing 18 points and 13 rebounds while Almond Vosotros had 13 markers and 5 boards for the Archers. –
