MANILA, Philippines – Adamson survived Far Eastern University, 68-67, on two freethrows by Don Trollano Saturday in the 2013 Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at the Arena in San Juan.

Trollano, fouled by Terrence Romeo on the drive, connected on his freebies with 14.4 seconds left to regain the lead for the Falcons, who led by nine early in the fourth.

The Tamaraws were left with ample time for a game-winner, but Roger Pogoy botched a long pass intended for a cutting Anthony Hargrove and missed a chance to steal the game.

Trollano only had five points as he missed all of his six attempts from the field but made the two most important points of the night.

“I really expected Don [Trollano] will deliver since we don’t have Eric Camson and Alex Nuyles anymore. I told him his time will come,” said Coach Leo Austria.

On back-to-back treys by Harry Petilos and Francis Donahue, Adamson posted a 58-49 lead. But FEU went on a run to get a taste of the lead, 67-66, with 34.4 seconds left before Trollano’s freethrows.

Austria was proud of the win, not expecting the Falcons to perform well in their Filoil Pre-Season cup debut as they did not start well.

The burly Ingrid Sewa, now eligible for the incoming UAAP season, also impressed Austria.

Sewa finished with 12 points, eight rebounds and a block for Adamson even as Rodney Brondial and Jericho Cruz each had 10.

“I was surprised with Sewa because he’s not playing well in the other league,” said Austria for his 19-year-old Cameroonian center.

Romeo led the Tamaraws, meanwhile, with 21 points and four rebounds while Hargrove added 11 points and seven boards.

The scores:

ADAMSON 68 – Sewa 12, Brondial 10, Cruz 10, Petilos 9, Trollano 5, Donahue 5, Cabrera 5, Rios 3, Inigo 3, Monterclaro 2, Agustin 2, Cabigas 2, Abrigo 0, Julkipli 0.

FEU 67- Romeo 21, Hargrove 11, Pogoy 7, Garcia 6, Belo 6, Mendoza 5, Escotor 4, Cruz 3, Tolomia 2, Jose 2, Inigo 0, Luz 0, Delfinado 0.
