    Super subs take over as NU Bullpups rout UP to move a win away from sweep

    Feb 2, 2020

    PERFECTION is within reach for National University-Nazareth School as a 113-76 rout of University of the Philippines Integrated School on Sunday moved it a win away from a 14-game elimination sweep of the UAAP Season 82 boys' basketball tournament.

    Steve Nash Enriquez tallied 17 points, five rebounds, three steals, and two assists while Terrence Fortea also came off the bench and dropped 17 of his own as the reserves played big to help the Bullpups secure win No. 13 at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

    "Masama 'yung laro ng first group namin kaya humabol kami with second and third groups which they did a good job nung first half," said coach Goldwyn Monteverde. "Nakabawi naman 'yung starters namin nung third quarter, tapos tuloy-tuloy na."

    Gerry Abadiano added 12 points, six dimes, and two boards, Kevin Quiambao had 10 points and seven boards, and Carl Tamayo had a double-double of his own with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

    The win allowed NU to inch closer to securing an outright Finals berth, with FEU-Diliman the only team standing on its way.

    But Monteverde said that completing the 14-0 run is the least of his priorities.

    "Kung makakapag-sweep, okay. Pero kasi kami, kung anong game lang ang lalaruin namin, doon lang kami naka-focus talaga. Hopefully ganoon ang mangyari," he said ahead of Wednesday's big game.

    Ateneo also clinched a spot in the Final Four with a 79-52 drubbing of DLSZ.

    Forthsky Padrigao carried the Blue Eaglets with 19 points, six rebounds, four steals, and three assists, as Lebron Lopez did his share with 17 points, three boards, two dimes, and two blocks to rise to 8-5.
