60-point second half explosion propels La Salle to third straight win

Trailing by three at halftime, the Green Archers went on a scoring tear to begin the third period and never looked back after that as they cruise to their third straight victory, 95-62 over Arellano University.

Justine Baltazar led the way with 21 points and 16 rebounds while Aljun Melecio and Encho Serrano each added 16.

The team made 12 threes while dishing out a combined 27 assists in this contest.

“When we play good defense, 1-on-1, it gives us an opportunity to run” said coach Gian Nazario. The Green Archers converted on 25 fastbreak points.


Now at second place in their group with a 4-1 slate, they will next face San Beda on Jun 7.
