Archers eye No. 4 vs Pirates
LA SALLE’S young crew hopes to put up another bristling show when the Green Archers shoot for a fourth straight victory against the winless Lyceum Pirates today in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.
The Green Archers, one of only two unbeaten squads in the tournament, battle the Pirates at 2:30 p.m. with coach Gee Abanilla expecting his boys to sustain their impressive start.
“I like the way they play aggressive on both ends, but it’s about getting better individually and as a team,” said Abanilla, who will rely on Jeron Teng, last season’s UAAP Rookie of the Year, and top recruits Kib Montalbo, Robert Bolick and Jason Perkins.
University of Santo Tomas tries to rebound from an upset loss to Southwestern University (63-64) in its 4:15 match versus San Sebastian.
La Salle won its first three games by an average of 19.6 points, the last a 90-74 rout of the Stags. Jasmine W. Payo
