img_3454The DLSU Green Archers needed an extra five minutes to dispose of the Adamson Falcons, 84-79 in Season  71 of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament at the Philsports Arena.

Coming from a hairline win over the UST Growling Tigers last Thursday, the Green Archers groped for form the entire ballgame but managed to send the game into overtime.  The Green Archers had the opportunity to seal the victory after Adamson bungled its last play with only 5.7 seconds left. As in their game against the Tigers, a play was designed for rookie point guard LA Revilla, but Revilla failed to nail the shot.  

Rico Maierhofer, redeeming himself from his dismal performance from the charity line in Thursday’s game, delivered the final blows to the Adamson Falcons, with his free throw shots.

J-vee Casio, who will be celebrating his birthday on September 1, topscored anew for the defending champions with 19 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists.
