The Green Archers are now 0-2 to start the season as they bowed down to the Blue Eagles 72-81.

How it happened

La Salle was successful in muscling Greg Slaughter away from his sweet spot. He was only able to register 7 markers, a far cry from his 23-point performance a week ago. The problem was that the Archers allowed Kiefer Ravena to have a field day in the first half where he scored all but 2 of his 24 points. Veterans Nico Salva and Kirk Long picked-up the offensive slack in the second half as the Eagles led by as much as 17 points in the 3rd period.

The Green Archers, led by LA Revilla staged a rally as they trimmed the lead to 5 points midway in the 4th period. Their defense forced Ateneo to a series of turnovers but their efforts to take the lead fell short due to several botched plays down the stretch.

It was gallant performance by Revilla  as he led the Archers with 22 points.

Stats of the Game

The Archers did very well from the foul line as they went 22 of 31 (71%). La Salle shot only 34.5% from the field as compared to Ateneo’s 52%.

Next Game

The Archers try to regroup as they battle the retooled UP Fighting Maroons next week. Though we are still in the early stages of the tournament, this game is already a “must-win” for the team.
