    CARL Tamayo finally took the spotlight after languishing in the shadows in the UAAP Season 81 juniors' basketball tournament.

    The NU slotman has been on-and-off all season long, but on the final week of the eliminations, Tamayo came up huge and dropped 11 points and nine rebounds, showing the way for the Bullpups as they swept the second round with a big 81-75 victory over FEU-Diliman.

    The 6-foot-8 former Batang Gilas snared the top position in the Chooks-to-Go/ NBTC UAAP 24 high school rankings as NU finished the eliminations on top at 13-1.

    Tamayo put an end to Kai Sotto's three-week run at the top of the standings, forcing the runaway MVP from Ateneo to settle for No. 2 this week despite his 17-point, 15-rebound, and 2-block effort over Adamson.

    UST senior guard Mark Nonoy finished at third after ending his high school career with a solid win over De La Salle-Zobel, as NU guard Gerry Abadiano earned the No. 4 spot. FEU-Diliman sniper RJ Abarrientos completed the top five.
