The UST Growling Tigers suffered under the De La Salle University Green Archers, 72-99, in their first round match-up in the UAAP Season 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena Wednesday.

The España-based cagers had to rely on their all-local squad as Steve Akomo was unable to suit up for the Tigers due to food poisoning.

La Salle unleashed an early 13-2 run in the first quarter.

Renzo Subido lead UST with 16 points while rookie standout Cj Cansino, whose average is 17.6 points in UST’s last three games, only settled for seven markers.

The Tigers were
able to bring down the lead to 15, but La Salle’s first quarter breakaway paved the way for the Archers to bring the advantage to as much as 30 points.

La Salle limited UST to only 72 points, with the Tigers shooting 31.58% in the field.

The Archers’ hot shooting proved to be tough as they shot 57% from beyond the arc and capitalized on the absence of UST’s Akomo by scoring 40 inside points.

Justine Baltazar and Aljun Melencio contributed 22 and 19 points, respectively, to help La Salle clinch the win.

This is Aldin Ayo’s first game against the team whom he lead to a runner-up finish and championship in the last two years.

UST will look to notch their second win again the University of the East Red Warriors this coming Saturday, Oct. 6, at the Mall of Asia Arena.
