/ 06:54 PM October 24, 2018

National University overpowered Adamson University, 86-58, to hike its winning streak to 73 games- matching the record in all sports Wednesday in the UAAP Season 81 women’s basketball tournament at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Coach Pat Aquino’s troops meant business after the five-peat seeking Lady Bulldogs equaled the Lady Falcons’ softball winning streak that lasted from January 2010 to March 2016.

“My mindset is to win this game. Let’s forget the streak. Let’s forget 73-0. Let’s forget 9-0. It’s just a game that we have to play,” said Aquino.

“The pressure is already mounting. I told my players to let’s just go out and play our game,” he added.
