The De La Salle University Green Archers blew a double-digit first half lead and suffered their third defeat in the UAAP men’s basketball tournament to the UST Growling Tigers, 77-61, on Wednesday at the Mall of Asia Arena.
After two disappointing losses early in the season, the Green Archers notched back-to-back wins to put themselves back in contention.
The De La Salle Green Archers registered another win against the UE Red Warriors, 71-64 moving them above the .500 mark.
All but one (2013) of La Salle’s eight UAAP men’s basketball championships have come courtesy of the noted Pumaren (Manong Derick or Franz) full-court pressure defense.
My question coming into tomorrow’s game is are we going to experience our first winning streak this season.
Before the season started, there was an overall positive feeling by the community on the Green Archers. One week later, that optimistic sentiment turned to gloom and frustration.
The Far Eastern University Tamaraws showed everyone why they are the team to beat this season with a massive win against DLSU, 75-93.
For the sake of the Lasallian community, I really hope that last Sunday’s 77-93 drubbing was the Green Archers finally hitting rockbottom.
