MANILA, Philippines — University of the Philippines vented its ire on Adamson, 77-51, to regain its winning ways in the UAAP Season 86 men’s basketball tournament on Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena.

Malick Diouf led the balanced attack of the Fighting Maroons with 12 points, 14 rebounds, and three blocks, while Reyland Torres also scored 12 points, seven rebounds, and three assists to bounce back from 99-89 loss to Ateneo in overtime last Sunday.

“This was a good bounce-back game for us, coming off a loss in the last game. It’s the start of the second round obviously and Coach Gold emphasized one thing, even from the start of the season–to keep pounding, which means we have to build the things we want to improve as a team on both ends. We were quite satisfied to get that bounce-back performance on both ends,” said UP assistant coach Christian Luanzon speaking for Goldwin Monteverde.

With the score tied at 59 with 3.9 seconds left after Kai Ballungay’s turnover from his inbound pass, Gonzales made an up-and-under move to elude the taller Chris Koon and sank the off-balance game-winner.

MANILA, Philippines — After emerging as the Most Valuable Player frontrunner in the first round, Kevin Quiambao sustained his dominant form to power La Salle’s 100-69 beatdown of  University of Santo Tomas in the UAAP Season 86 men’s basketball tournament on Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena.

The 6-foot-8 Quiambao dropped 22 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, five steals, and a block in 23 minutes of playing time to start the Green Archers’ second-round campaign with a 31-point blowout win for an improved 5-3 record.

The sophomore forward, who could be the first local UAAP MVP since Ateneo guard Kiefer Ravena in 2014 and 2015, said he is honored to lead the statistical race in the first round but his main goal is to stick to coach Topex Robinson’s system and win games for La Salle.
