    JERRICK Ahanmisi made an impressive UAAP debut on Sunday, scoring 28 points as Adamson overcame University of the Philippines, 104-85, in the opener of the Season 79 seniors basketball tournament at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

    The younger brother of Rain or Shine guard Maverick Ahanmisi made six three-pointers in his first official UAAP game but the Falcons needed to weather a gritty Maroons stand to win in their first game under coach Franz Pumaren.

    Robbie Manalang tallied 16 points for the Falcons, who trailed by six points, 83-77, with four minutes left only to finish the match with a 21-8 run.

    The win gave Pumaren his first win as an Adamson coach after working for a decade with La Salle in the early 1990s and 2000s, winning five championships.

    “This one game is what I was worried about because I know for a fact that there are going to be a lot of jitters especially the young guys. It showed a bit,” said Pumaren.

    Paul Desiderio led the Maroons comeback bid before finishing with 24 points, while Jett Manuel had 15 points.

    The scores:

    Adamson (104) — Ahanmisi 28, Manalang 16, Ochea 13, Sarr 13, Mustre 9, Manganti 9, Tungcab 8, Pasturan 6, Ng 4, Paranada 1, Camacho 0.

    UP (85) — Desiderio 24, Manuel 15, Moralde 12, Asilum 11, Vito 7, Webb 5, Harris 5, Gomez De Llano 2, Romero 2, Lao 2 Dario 0, Lim 0, Prado 0, Jaboneta 0, Longa 0.

    Quarterscores: 28-18, 46-38, 73-57, 104-85.
