Bulldogs, Archers roll back Filoil opponents


LA SALLE’S stellar rookie class lived up to its billing  while Ray Parks came through in the clutch for National University as the two squads survived separate thrillers yesterday at the start of Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup.

Filipino-American Jason Perkins debuted with a double-double of 17 points and 13 rebounds as the Green Archers rallied to hack out a  73-67 decision of the University of Santo Tomas Tigers.

Parks knocked in 23 points—including a triple from the right wing with 2.5 seconds left that forged overtime—to lift the Bulldogs past the NCAA champion San Beda Lions, 73-71, in the first game at Filoil Flying V Arena.

“This season is for my dad, I dedicate my game to him,” said Parks, who wore the No. 22 jersey in memory of his late father, seven-time Best PBA Import Bobby Parks.

Parks scored four of the Bulldogs’ nine points in the extra period, while Cameroonian center Alfred Aroga also delivered with 16 points, 12 rebounds and a block.

Perkins fueled a 15-5 windup in the final five minutes as the  Archers  downed the Tigers, last season’s UAAP finalists.

Gabby Reyes added 13 points while Jeron Teng and Almond Vosotros scored 10 each for the Archers, who overcame the hot shooting of UST veterans Jeric Teng (31 points) and Aljon Mariano (28 points). With a report from Randolph Leongson
