ADAMSON trounced Far Eastern University, 95-79, on Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena, extending its winning streak in the UAAP Season 80 basketball tournament to four games.
In the battle of streaking teams, the Falcons were left with their winning run still intact in closing the first round campaign with a 5-2 win-loss slate.
Adamson never trailed in the match and didn't show signs of fatigue despite playing its third consecutive play date since Sunday.
The Tamaraws saw their three-game winning streak snapped as they ended the first round with a 4-3 slate.
"We survived the brutal week," said Adamson coach Franz Pumaren. "Credit to my coaching staff, they really scouted the opposing teams. Same thing with the players, they were able to play with the same intensity since the first game of the brutal week."
Jerrick Ahanmisi had 17 points on 3-of-6 shooting from threes, while Jonathan Espeleta also scored 17 and adding six assists for the Falcons, who sizzled from threes as the team made 10 out of their 21 three-point attempts.
Papi Sarr finished with 14 points and 14 rebounds, while Robbie Manalang had 11 points on 3-of-8 shooting from threes.
Jasper Parker had 12 points for the Tamaraws, who lost Arvin Tolentino in the game after incurring two unsportsmanlike fouls in the contest.
