FEU defeats UST in UAAP 75 opening thriller

The Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws defeated the University of Sto. Tomas (UST) Growling Tigers 73-72 in their first encounter in UAAP Season 75 at the MOA Arena on July 14.


UST was ahead 31.6 seconds left in the final quarter, but FEU was able to steal the ball and passed it to RR Garcia who delivered the goods, made the winning shot, to bring his team on top by a single point 7 seconds left before the buzzer.

An attempt by UST to win the game did not prosper as Aljon Mariano missed a potential game-winning tear drop shot.

The first game for Saturday’s double-header was a lopsided one as the National University (NU) Bulldogs routed the University of the East (UE) Red Warriors with a very wide margin, 90-55.

ABS-CBN Sports said replay of NU vs. UE will air Saturday night, July 14 at at 8 p.m., followed by a replay of the FEU vs. UST game at 10 p.m. on BALLS SkyCable Channel 34.
