Perpetual Help drowns PCU

6 05 2007

UNIVERSITY of Perpetual Help Dalta System gave Philippine Christian University a 68-61 setback on Sunday evening in the Fil-Oil Flying V Preseason Invitational Cup at the Arena in San Juan City .

Veteran Fritz Bauzon, using his superb experience from his stint in the PBL, delivered 15 points and hauled down nine rebounds to score the Altas’ first win in two games after losing via default last Wednesday against University of Santo Tomas.

“I’m a veteran so I have to act like a veteran,” said Bauzon. “I’m confident after I made three straight baskets so I continuously attacked the basket.”

Bauzon drilled in three consecutive baskets in a crucial 8-0 blast made by Perpetual in the last two-minute mark to seize the Dolphins’ 61-60 spread and turn it to a 68-60 advantage with just 28 ticks remaining.

Sang Myeon Lee pumped in 12 points and guard Michael Kong added 10 points and six assists to hand the Dolphins their second setback after three games.

Down by 15-18 at the end of the opening frame, Perpetual unleashed its strength in the offensive end as it outscored PCU in the second frame, 20-13. Lee made four charities to give the Altas a 35-31 halftime edge.

The Dolphins tried their best to come up with a rally but the Altas always had an answer. Richard Mojado scored on a lay up to give Perpetual a 46-36 lead with 5:03 to go in the third quarter. The Dolphins sliced the gap further, 48-43 after Navarro’s triple with 26 seconds left in the third.

With its impressive scoring and suffocating defense, Perpetual held off PCU most of the time in the final period before Dale Santos, Liztian Amparado sparked an 8-0 blast to snatch the lead for awhile, 61-60. Bauzon, however, had another agenda laid out in the final two-minutes of the ballgame.
