La Salle notched its second consecutive win after trouncing University of the East, 82-72, in the UAAP Season 81 men’s basketball tournament Sunday night at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Aljun Melecio waxed hot from the 3-point area, going 5-of-7, to finish with 18 points while Justine Baltazar recorded a double-double with 16 points and 14 rebounds that went with three blocks for the Green Archers, who upped their mark to 2-1.

The Archers put the game away in the third quarter where they widened the gap to 20, 57-37, after a basket by Santi Santillan with 1:49 remaining.

The Red Warriors relied heavily on Alvin Pasaol anew. The explosive forward had 20 points on 8-of-20 from the field four days after dropping 36 points on 34 shots in a 90-76 loss to league-leading Adamson on Wednesday.
