This will be a crucial match for the Archers as a win will give them more cushion for the 2nd twice to beat spot behind pace setters, the Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles. A loss will relegate the Archers to a tie with the Tamaraws and at the same time, provide some ray of hope for the Red Warriors to also knock in that 2nd twice to beat advantage spot after the elimination round.

Simon Atkins might be able to play already in this game after resting for two full weeks due to his whiplash injury suffered against UE in the Archers' last game in the first round. This will bolster the Archers' backcourt who will be tested once again against their tough and gritty counterparts from Morayta namely, Barocca, Alisbo, Knuttel, and the red hot Benedict Fernandez who has been waxing hot and playing inspired basketball since the departure of fellow 5th year standout Mac Baracael due to his gunshot wounds.

Paul Sanga has been playing superb basketball as of late as well alternating with Fernandez in the shooting guard spot and providing quality minutes with his outside sniping. His improved play also came out after the Baracael's departure. Reil Cervantes and Aldreech Ramos also will provide problems in the frontcourt for the Archers. Cervantes showed that he can play toe-to-toe with the reigning MVP in their last game against UST and even outplaying him as times with his array of moves from the low post and at the same time from the perimeter.

Ferdinand, Villanueva, Mendoza, and Walsham will have their hands full on the FEU bigs as these guys are not only athletic and fast, they can also shoot it out from the perimeter. JR Cawaling was yet to be mentioned on the list of the players to watch for the Tamaraws. These Tamaraws are still armed dangerous even though missing two key players in Baracael and Kave. I don't think Casio can carry alone the scoring for the Archers this time around. Barua, Mangahas, and Maierhofer should step up and contribute to dedicate this victory for coach Franz's last game before departing for Iran to fulfill his RP youth coaching duties.

The big men scoring will also be helpful especially in cases our perimeter guys will be on trouble. DLSU's big men positioning will also help should FEU clamp down on DLSU's perimeter game and will force the Archers to dribble drive in the lane for possible short jumpshots that can create drop pass situations for our big men. I hope Ferdinand will continue his rejuvenated game as I expect him to be the starter for this game with Rico, Jovet, and PJ alternating later on.

It's a must win situation for the Archers this Saturday and it might be an emotional one due to the "color" that has transpired in the first round encounter between the two teams courtesy of FEU board rep Anton Montinola insinuating "conscience" to the Archers and to the DLSU community due to the impartaility of calls back in their first round tussle. The first round encounter also saw a referee suspended indefinitely due to poor performance in making questionable calls in the crucial mark of the game. Emotions will be high on this game for sure.

Anton's sorry a$$ on a silver platter will be enough motivation for our boys and the DLSU community to go all out for 40 minutes of hell! We have to start quick against this very tough FEU squad as we dont want to play catch up. We have players who match well with theirs so it's more of who comes out ready and willing to go for the kill. No more Mr nice guy...time to show what DLSU basketball is all about! Showtime baby!!!

FEU 5 ties victim La Salle with second best UAAP record

MANILA, Philippines – The Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws resumed its hunt for one of the two Final Four spots that have a twice-to-beat edge in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP).

FEU streaked to its third straight win no thanks to gutsy guard Andy Barroca’s game-long exploits as he led the Tamaraws to an 83-75 victory against the reigning UAAP champions La Salle Green Archers Saturday at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City.

Baroca erupted for a season-high 26 points to help the Tamaraws pull the Archers to a second-best record tying their victims with an 8-3 mark behind the 10-1 slate of the league-leading Blue Eagles of Ateneo.

Barroca, who also pulled down seven rebounds and had two steals, made 11 of his total tally in the final period including an outside jumper that ended La Salle’s rally when the Archers threatened at 67-63 with three minutes left in the game.

That Baroca jumper reinforced FEU’s lead and at the same time touching off a 9-3 spurt that pushed the Tamaraws lead to 10, 76-66, 1:155 left before the final buzzer.

That scoring exchange was also highlighted by back-to-back steals by FEU big man Reil Cervantes and Jens Knuttel, who also scored five straight points in that stretch.

JV Casio, James Mangahas and Rico Maierhofer tried desperately to bring the Archers back into the game but for every point they scored the Tamaraws had an answer at the other end. – Andrew Lanot

When DLSU was able to get the lead after a shot by Jvee, coach franz inexplicably sent out Casio and James Mangahas. Medyo mali ata yun kasi dun nag start mag run uli ang FEU led by poging-pogi Andy Barocca. and the rest was history.

Feu was simply better yesterday. The intensity that we wanted wasnt there. It was actually a weird looking game from our stand point as it seems we were lost out there. Not a typical DLSU-franz pumaren team that runs well oiled. So far i really havent seen anything close to that this season. Yes, we are 8-3 but there is still something missing...Hope we see it soon, i certainly hope too that we peak at the right time...AGAIN! :)

that was a really surprising move to say the least, even us non coaches were quick to notice how odd that move was........... ??? ???

thats why a lot of critics say 1 coach has more power to decide the outcome of the game than 3 players can...

That's why Franz has several championships while most of the other UAAP don't even have one. He has a master plan for the season, and we're not privy to his strategies and tactics. But you can't question his track record and ability to get the job done.

Kahit na gaano kagaling, marunong naman magkamali. Tao lang naman si coach eh. The opinions stated with regards to player rotation in this game are pretty valid points for discussion.

Jvee Casio had to be paced by coach Franz last Saturday because he was under the weather. He was even admitted for a day in the hospital last week before the game. That's why labos pasok siya sa game against the Tams. Not to make it as an excuse for the loss, the pacing of Jvee affected the rotation of coach Franz in a way specially Bader and Hyram couldn't get their game going. Di niya mababad si Jvee. When La Salle finally got the lead in the fourth quarter, coach deemed it pwedeng bigyan si Jayvee ng pahinga since nakalamang na. But FEU really was awesome last Saturday. They wanted to prove something and they got it. Congrats to the Tams. As they say, 'till next time.

Actually not just for that game but for every game from here on. Hindi puedeng si Jvee lang ang sasalba sa atin from the two-guard position. It is imperative actually for Bader and Hyram to strut their stuff and provide quality minutes to give Jvee an all-important rest. My fear here is that Jvee might be burned out if this trend continues.
