LSGH arranges semis showdown with Adamson, Malayan takes on National U in PCABL

TOP seed La Salle Greenhills reaffirmed its mastery over University of the East, 108-70, to advance to the semis of the PCABL 11th Freego Cup held over the weekend at the Buddhacare gym in Quezon City.

As in their previous wins, the reigning NCAA champions leaned on a well-balanced attack to extend their winning streak to seven games since dropping their opening game.

Five LSGH players scored in double figures, with Ladis Lepalam scoring 14 and Lennon Valenzuela adding 13.

Out to foil La Salle’s bid is Adamson, which scored a 73-63 win over Jose Rizal University Light Bombers, 73-63, in the event also backed by Choi Garden, CW Home Depot, Powerhouse, and Hapee Toothpaste.

The other semis match pits No. 2 seed Malayan University against National University.

The NU Bullpups ousted Far Eastern University, 59-51, behind the efforts of Carl Tamayo and Gerry Abadiano.

No. 2 seed Malayan University got a big lift from Dan Arches ­to subdue University of Perpetual Help, 89-74.

Arches erupted for 21 points and grabbed eight boards.
