     Mula sa pagkakabaon ng 17 puntos sa unang kanto, hindi na nagawa pang humabol ng University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers kontra sa nag-aalab na Far Eastern University Tamaraws, 87-60, sa pagsisimula ng ikalawang round ng UAAP Season 75 men’s basketball sa Mall of Asia Arena noong ika-23 ng Agosto, 2012.

     Nasayang lamang ang pinagsamang 27 puntos na tinipa nina Aljon Mariano at Jeric Fortuna matapos madepensahang maigi ang Cameroonian center na si Karim Abdul. Nakapaglista lamang si Abdul ng 11 puntos sa labang ito na pumutol sa kanilang six-game winning streak.

     Nagtala lamang ng 34.8 field goal percentage ang Tigers kabilang ang nakapanlulumong 20% sa rainbow territory, sa kabila ng pagiging isang mahusay na 3-point shooting team sa liga, bukod pa sa mababang 31 rebounds.

     Samantala, namayani naman para saTamaraws ang league’s third best scorer na si Terrence Romeo na kumonekta ng 19 na puntos tampok ang 14 sa unang kanto at sinamahan pa ng pinaghalong 26 na marka nina Roger Pogoy at Anthony Hangrove.

     Mainit na tumapak sa hard court ang FEU nang maagang magpaulan ng tres at put back jumpers si Romeo para sa isang 9-0 run kasabay ng mala-moog na depensa upang hindi makapuntos ang Tigers sa loob ng tatlong minuto at makapag-tayo ng 17-point advantage, 26-9.

     Nalimitahan lamang sa sampung puntos ang UST sa ikalawang period at hindi na nila napigilan pa ang Tamaraws sa pananalasa sa opensa matapos ang isang two-handed slam dunk ni Hangrove, 1:46 sa naturang kanto, na nagpatayo sa mga manunood at nagpalaki sa lamang, 19-47.

     Tila nabuhayan ang mga taga-Espanyana nang magpakawala ng limang tres sa ikatlong kanto ang Tigers sa pangunguna nina Clark Bautista at Mariano tampok ang 11-0 run, subalit hindi sapat upang idikit ang sagupaan at maiwananng 26 na puntos sa pagsisimula ng pay-off period, 40-66.

     Hindi na umubra pa ang lay-ups at coast-to-coast drives nina Abdul at Mariano sa huling kanto nang masustina ng kalaban ang ritmo nito sa laban upang dominahin ito at isukbit ang ikaanim na panalo.

     Humingi naman ng paumanhin si Jeric Teng, umiskor lamang ng dalawang puntos, sa naging resulta ng laro niya at ng buong koponan. Sa kanyang twitter account, sinabi nitong “Saying sorry isn’t enough for what we did, I don’t know how to put into words. We humiliated ourselves.

     Resulta ng pagkatalong ito ang pagbaba ng Tigers sa ikatlong pwesto, katabla ang katunggali sa 6-2 na kartada.

Tigers, haharap muli sa Bulldogs
     Sa ganap na ika-4 ng hapon ngayon, haharapin naman ng Growling Tigers ang Bulldogs sa Smart-Araneta Coliseum. Matatandaang tinalo nila ang Bulldogs noong unang round sa score na 77-71.

     Kasalukuyang nasa ikaapat na pwesto ang NU na may 5-3 na karta.

Tamaraws’ Scores: 87- Romeo 19, Pogoy 13, Hangrove 13, Bringas A. 10, Bringas M. 8, Tolomia 7, Garcia 5, Sentcheu 4, Mendoza 4, Belo 2, Cruz 2, Inigo 0, Jose 0, Guerrero 0
Tigers’ Scores: 60- Mariano 15, Fortuna 12, Abdul 11, Bautista 8, Vigil 4, Ferrer 4, Teng 2, Pe 2, Daquioag 2, Lo 0, Haingan 0, Garrido 0, Afuang 0
Quarter Scores: 9-26, 47-19, 66-40, 87-60

With the recent mess brought about by the COVID-19, the UAAP has declared in their recent memorandum that all pending high school events are to be cancelled, while for the college tournaments, a change in the current format. 

“If the government declares it is safe to resume classes on April 15, 2020, and does not prohibit mass gatherings, the UAAP will work toward alternative formats of the competition to begin no earlier than May 1, 2020.” the memorandum stated. 

The memorandum came two days after the declaration of the suspension of classes which is set to last until April 14 and the implementation of strict social distancing measures in the National Capital Region (NCR)

The UST Junior Tigresses and the Adamson Baby Falcons were also proclaimed as co-champions of the inaugural girls’ basketball tournament held earlier this year.

The UST Golden Tigresses dismantled the FEU  Lady Tamaraws in straight sets, 25-20, 25-16, 25-18 to complete a bounce back ordeal in the UAAP season 82 womens’ volleyball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay on Sunday, March 3. 

Led by their prized duo in the Laure sisters, the Tigresses easily cruised to victory as the Lady Tamaraws found no answer to UST’s red hot offense. 

The younger Eya scored a game high 16 points, while the elder EJ had 12 of her own. Veteran Caitlyn Viray and rookie Imee Hernandez had nine and seven markers respectively. 

“Number one adjustment na ginawa namin yung constant communication, especially pag nasa loob, yung nasa labas kasi talagang dire-diretso na kami sa pagbigay ng instructions so mas maganda yung naging receiver namin, yung mga player namin,” UST head coach Emilio Kung Fu Reyes remarked when asked as to what improvements his team made heading into the game. 

Save for the first set, UST found no problems as they swept FEU, especially in the third set that saw the Tigresses go up by as much as 10 points. 

UST also had 45 attack points in total, a stark contrast to FEU’s 27.

Jeanette Villareal and Czarina Carandang had seven points apiece to lead the Lady Tamaraws while Ivana Agudo had six in the losing cause. 

With the win, both teams are now tied with a 1-1 record. 

UST is set to take on the DLSU Lady Spikers next.

Four days removed from their opening loss against NU, the UST Tiger Spikers fell anew to the FEU Tamaraws after a five-set thriller, 21-25, 26-24, 25-20, 22-25, 12-15 in the first round of the UAAP season 82 men’s volleyball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay on Sunday, March 8. 

After a back and forth affair in the first two sets, UST seemed ready to pull away as they took a 2-1 lead against the Tamaraws before the Morayta- based squad managed to keep their composure and took the next two sets to take the game. 

The fifth set saw the Tiger Spikers struggle against FEU who had momentum on their side after winning the fourth set, and as much as UST was on its way to closing the gap, the Tamaraws ultimately sealed the game courtesy of Jude Garcia. 

Joshua Umandal had 21 points to lead the Tiger Spikers for the second straight game, while Jhun Senoron and Manuel Medina flanked him with 17 and 10 markers respectively.

For FEU, Jude Garcia led the charge with 27 points. Jose Javelona and JP Bugaoan had 13 apiece and Mark Calado chipped in 12 markers of his own.

The game now puts UST at a 0-2 record, while FEU stays unbeaten at 2-0. 

The Tiger Spikers will look to bounce back against DLSU on March 15.
