    Bullpups escape with win against Baby Tams in UAAP juniors opener

    Nov 11, 2018

    NATIONAL University started its road to redemption with a 78-70 squeaker over Far Eastern University in the UAAP Season 81 juniors basketball tournament Sunday at Blue Eagle Gym.

    Carl Tamayo picked his spots for the Bullpups and unloaded 18 points, 10 rebounds, an assist and a block in 14 minutes off the bench.

    Terrence Fortea added 11 points, six rebounds and two assists, while Gerry Abadiano got 10 points and three dimes for last year's runners-up.

    NU used a 15-3 salvo in the last six minutes to turn a tight 63-61 lead to a commanding 78-64 advantage.

    "Siguro, we have to be more consistent," lamented Bullpups coach Goldwin Monteverde. "Medyo nag-start out nang maganda yung defense namin. Na-contain namin yung FEU noong first half. Noong bandang gitna ng third quarter, medyo bumaba na naman."

    RJ Abarrientos led the Baby Tamaraws with 15 points, seven rebounds and five assists, while RR Tolentino got a double-double with his 14 and 11.
