Romeo, FEU torch hapless UP
MANILA, Philippines -- And Terrence Romeo isn't done yet.
The hot-shooting guard set another career high with 33 points as Far Eastern University cruised past University of the Philippines, 87-69, in the 76th UAAP men's basketball tournament on Wednesday, September 11 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
The Tamaraws got off to a scorching start and never looked back, not allowing its lead to go below double-digits in posting their 10th win of the season.
Despite committing two offensive fouls early in the first period, Romeo sizzled in the second quarter to also finish with 9 rebounds and 5 assists as his quest for the MVP trophy gained more ground.
Sam Marata led the Fighting Maroons with 23 points but the Diliman-based squad still failed to score a breakthrough win to fall to 0-12.
The victory ensures FEU of at least a top 3 finish and a playoff for a twice-to-beat slot. - Rappler.com
