Red Warriors sweep 1st round

5 08 2007

The University of the East wrapped up the first round with another victory this time over Adamson University, 95-70, at the Araneta Coliseum last August 5.

The Warriors swept the first round with a 7-0 slate.

“We’re very happy but this is nothing. A lot of teams are improving. It will definitely be tougher in the second round,” said Coach Dindo Pumaren after the game.

In the first quarter, the Red Warriors ignited a 13-1 run 4:20 minutes in the clock to push the lead to 15 points. The first period ended with Adamson suffering from a 13-point deficit, 26-13.

UE extended its lead to 17 points in the second quarter, 48-31.

In the third quarter, the Red Warriors exhibited some showmanship including an alleyhoop by Kelvin Gregorio and another slam from Mark Borboran. UE’s lead extended to 23 points after three quarters, 71-48.

In the final period, Llagas made 8 points for the Warriors while Cañada stepped up for the Falcons contributing 8 points. It was a 25-point lead for the Red Warriors, 95-70.

Coach Dindo said he is glad that his boys are still improving every game and that in each game, somebody steps up.

With this game against Adamson, Mark Borboran led the Warriors with 16 points followed by Narciso Llagas who bagged 15 points and Kerlvin Gregorio who made 14 points.

Patrick Cabahug is still solo flight with 25 points and 7 rebs. For the Falcons, Roel Hugnatan and Jerick Cañada combined for 25 points.

Adamson enters the second round 7th in the rack with a 1-6 card.

Coach Dindo said it is definitely an advantage winning over those 7 teams “but in UAAP it’s not just how many games you win.”

“Our hardwork paid off,” added the UE Coach.
