DLSU bows to AdU — Replay Video (August 14, 2011)

The De La Salle University (DLSU) Green Archers lost to the fiery Adamson University (AdU) Soaring Falcons 66-68 in the 74th season of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP 74) on Sunday, August 14th, the second day of the 2nd elimination round.

There was little production from the men in green in the third quarter. Also, turnovers and foul trouble hurt them en route to the final quarter. The Falcons, on the other hand, were in the attack mode, and very aggressive on both offense and defense.

The big man, Eric Camson, and Alex Nuyles led the Falcons, getting the luxury from a foul-troubled La Salle squad, were instructed to run a furios rally and attack the defense of the opponent. Adamson had DLSU trailing by 22 points down six minutes in the final quarter.

The Green Archers attempted to stop the Falcons at 3 minutes to play in the final quarter with Norbert Torres and Almond Vosotros leading the attack. They were able to cut the lead by 1 point at the last-two minutes of the game. Twenty-four points of La Salle came from the bench.

Camson sank a jumper from the elbow that brought the lead back to 3, but Luigi de la Paz successfully took a shot from beyond the arc which tied the game at 66-66 twenty eight seconds to end game. The thrill continued as Falcon's Nuyles made two points at 0.8 seconds left.

Camson had 20 points, 4 big rebounds coming off the bench; it was his best game for the season so far.

With Sunday's win, AdU strengthens its position at 2nd place in the ranking, bringing it up six wins over two losses, while La Salle now shares the third place with FEU and UST having a win-loss record of 4 a piece.
