Green Archers blasts Altas

27 05 2007

There is nothing the Altas can do but learn from this experience and learn from one of the top teams in Collegiate Basketball. The University of Perpetual Help Altas just could not handle the De La Salle University Green Archers, 71-55 in the FilOil Flying V Pre-Season Invitational at the Arena in San Juan.

The Green Archers came out storming. With TY Tang, Pocholo Villanueva and Allan Mangahas leading the way in the 1st quarter, DLSU ignited a 7-0 run from inside and out to take an 8-point lead by the end of the 1st 10 minutes of action, 21-13.

In the 2nd quarter, Coach Franz Pumaren unleashed their vaunted trapping defense that sparked another run (6-0) to give the Green Archers a 17-point lead, 31-14 half-way thru the 2nd but this time around it included another scorer in Rico Maierhoffer. Nathaniel Salanga, Virgilio Manuel and Michael Kong only provided token resitance to DLSU’s offensive in the 1st half. The Altas ended the 2nd quarter trailing the Green Archers by 18-points, 43-25.

In the 3rd quarter, Villanueva and Tang contributed to DLSU’s two runs – a two minute 6-0 run and another 6-0 run but this time in just under a minute. But the Altas somwhow managed to squeeze in a run of thier own to cut down the lead to 13-points, 54-41 with less than 3-minutes to play in the 3rd courtesy of Ronald Reyes, designated shooter Sang Myeon Lee (1/13 from the 3-point area) and Manuel. But the Altas have to settle with a 15-point deficit at the end of the quarter, 58-43.

In the last quarter of regulation, the Green Archers refusing to let down their arms, had another 6-0 run, with Maierhoffer, PJ Walsham and Villanueva at the helm, and gave the Green Archers a commanding 24-point lead 68-44 with still 4:48 minutes left in the ballgame. Isman Thoyib contributed 4-points all from the charity stripe in the last moments of the 4th quarter for the Altas.
