ADAM Doria hit seven three-pointers to guide Adamson to a 94-77 victory over De La Salle-Zobel on Sunday and clinch the last spot in the UAAP Season 81 juniors' basketball Final Four.
Doria went crazy from distance as he exploded for 27 points on a scintillating 7-of-14 shooting from deep, including the long bomb from near the half-court that put the exclamation point on the Baby Falcons' trouncing of the Junior Archers at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
He also grabbed six rebounds as Adamson secured the last ticket to the semifinals with its 8-4 card.
Twin brother Andrey Doria had 18 points, 11 rebounds and three assists, as main man Joem Sabandal scattered 19 points, 11 boards, five assists and one steal.
AP Manlapaz added 11 points and six rebounds as the Baby Falcons returned to the Final Four for the first time since UAAP Season 78.
DLSZ was holding on a slim 56-55 lead in the final four minutes of the third quarter when the Doria brothers went to work and commanded a 13-2 blast to finish the frame to help Adamson grab the 68-58 lead.
It was all Baby Falcons from there, breaking the game wide open as they held leads as high as 19.
Adamson joined league leader NU, Ateneo, and FEU-Diliman in the Final Four cast, with the last two gamedays virtually a battle for positioning for the top four teams.
Ivan Cudiamat paced the Junior Archers with 27 points and nine rebounds, while Lance Jomalesa had a double-double of 12 points and 11 boards in the losing cause.
DLSZ played its first game without Raven Cortez, who reaggravated his knee injury on its last game against NU and has now been ruled out of the season.
The Junior Archers fell to 4-8 in the standings to remain at sixth place.
