    UAAP results

    Three teams sustained their winning streaks, while University of Santo Tomas finally barged into the win column of the UAAP Season 84 men’s basketball tournament on Thursday.

    Ateneo continued to flex its muscles with a 78-47 rout of Adamson for its third straight victory – and 29th overall – behind Ange Kouame’s 13 points and 10 rebounds.

    With Justine Baltazar leading the way, La Salle rolled past Far Eastern University, 75-65, to also get a hat-trick of victories and grab a share of the lead with the Blue Eagles ahead of their rivalry game on Saturday.

    University of the Philippines, for its part, built its first winning streak with an 80-70 decision against National University for back-to-back wins after starting the season with a loss.

    Ricci Rivero scored nine of his 19 points in the payoff period to lead the late surge.

    The Hotshots import scattered 34 points on 16-of-22 shooting, and 18 rebounds, but focused on his three missed free throws.

    "I have to do better,” the NBA veteran said. “I have to be more accountable. I have to take advantage of more opportunities out there.”

    As Harris continues to shine, Meralco's Tony Bishop struggled in Game 4 with just 22 points on 7-of-17 shooting while committing six turnovers.

    Whoever wins the import battle in the deciding game on Friday is likely going to have a seat in the Finals.
