    MARK Nonoy hardly broke a sweat in steering University of Santo Tomas' season-ending, 85-64, conquest over De La Salle-Zobel to wrap up its UAAP Season 81 juniors' basketball campaign Sunday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

    The dynamic guard only needed to play in the first and third quarters as he pumped 16 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a block to help the Tiger Cubs nab back-to-back wins.

    Nonoy triggered the killer 13-0 tear for UST in the first quarter as it turned a close 14-12 lead to a commanding 27-12 advantage near the end of the period.

    The Tiger Cubs further extended the lead to 28, 55-27, to start the second half as they cruised to the victory.

    "We always wanted to end the season on a winning note especially sa mga seniors natin," said coach Bonnie Garcia as he gave Nonoy and 10 others a fitting end to their high school career.
