ADAMSON bounced back from a stinging setback with a 79-52 win over University of Santo Tomas on Wednesday in the UAAP Season 79 seniors basketball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The Falcons outscored the Growling Tigers, 26-8, in the third quarter to set the stage for the rout that enabled the long-suffering team to finish the first round of the eliminations with a winning 4-3 win-loss record.

With at least seven more games left to play, the Falcons have already surpassed their win total from last year in their first season under head coach Franz Pumaren.

Adamson also atoned for 64-57 defeat at the hands of previously winless University of the East last Sunday.
