Adamson led from wire-to-wire to eliminate University of Santo Tomas, 73-58, and clinch the last semifinals berth in the UAAP Season 79 women’s basketball tournament Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena.

Kaye Pingol had 17 points while Nathalia Prado added 15 points and 10 rebounds as the Lady Falcons led by as many as 28 points to prevail.

Adamson will play third-ranked University of the East in first step-ladder on Saturday at 12 nn also at MOA Arena.


“They want to prove something that we are in the Final Four,” said coach Mike Fermin, who took over the Lady Falcons last December. “For me, it’s accomplishment itself.”

De La Salle, meanwhile, secured the twice-to-beat bonus in the step-ladder semifinals after finishing at 11-3 in second place. The Lady Archers will play the winner of the Lady Warriors-Lady Falcons match on Wednesday.

Shanda Anies and Bettina Peñaflor teamed up for 24 points for the Tigresses, who wound up fifth for the second straight year.
