UAAP: La Salle crushes UST behind Deschon Winston’s 33
MANILA, Philippines–Deschon Winston uncorked a career-high 33 points as La Salle drubbed University of Santo Tomas, 112-83 Tuesday in the NCAA Season 84 men’s basketball at Mall of Asia Arena.
The 6-foot-4 guard from Los Angeles was unstoppable all over the court and didn’t have play in the fourth quarter as the Archers cruised their way to their sixth win in nine games.
Lacking in depth in all positions, the Tigers failed to get a foothold all day and fell to a 3-6 record putting their Final Four hopes in danger.
From just a 12-point deficit at the half, 58-46, La Salle pulled away on account of the frizzy, frosty-haired Winston who scored nine points in the same stretch to suddenly give the Archers a 74-49 lead that only grew bigger from there.
DLSU 112 – Winston 33, Baltazar 17, Nelle 16, M. Phillips 15, Lojera 10, Nonoy 5, Cuajao 5, Galman 5, Escandor 2, B. Phillips 2, Cu 2, Lim 0, Nwankwo 0, Turco 0.
UST 83 — Manalang 14, Santos 13, Concepcion 12, Cabanero 11, Ando 10, Fontanilla 8, Garing 6, Gomez de Liano 4, Samudio 3, Manaytay 2, Gesalem 0, Mantua 0, Yongco 0, Pangilinan 0, Herrera 0.
Quarterscores: 36-21, 58-46, 86-61, 112-83.
