    Archers survive Cobras, near Champs League title

    By Joey Villar

    (The Philippine Star) | Updated December 17, 2013 - 12:00am

    MANILA, Philippines - La Salle roared to a mighty start then weathered a late, furious fightback by Southwestern U as it hammered out a vengeful 64-54 victory yesterday to move within a win from claiming the Philippine Collegiate Champions League crown at The Arena in San Juan City.

    Jeron Teng, held to just seven points by the Cobras in their surprise 68-58 victory in the semis opener last week, torched their Cebu-based rivals with 18 points this time on an efficient seven-of-12 shooting and spiked his solid all-around effort with six rebounds and five assists.

    “That was different, this is a championship game where everybody needs to step up really big,” said Teng, the reigning UAAP Finals MVP and Smart Player of the Year.

    La Salle goes for the clincher in their best-of-three series today, also starting at 4 p.m. at the Arena. A deciding Game Three, if necessary, is set Thursday.

    What made the victory impressive was that the Archers did it despite injuries to key players Arnold Van Opstal (hip), Almond Vosotros (ankle), Matthew Salem (back) and Kib Montalbo (elbow).

    But Gab Reyes came off the bench to fire nine points, including two triples, while Robert Bollick started in place of Vosotros and made some key plays in the clutch.

    Thomas Torres also shone with 15 points while snaring six rebounds and two steals and Norbert Torres dominated the paint and finished with a double-double effort of 10 points and 12 caroms.

    While impressed with his wards’ fine start, La Salle coach Juno Sauler didn’t like the way they closed out the game.

    “I was disappointed with how we finished, good thing we had a big lead to cushion the fall,” he said.

    The Archers likewise clamped down on the hot-shooting Cobras, who leaned on their outside sniping to steal a gem of a win last week.

    “They beat us with their three-point shooting last time we played so we made sure it will not happen again,” said Sauler, whose Archers limited the Cobras to just two three-point conversions out of 19 after hitting six last week.

    Archers sweep Cobras for PCCL crown

    THE UAAP’s best is now also the No. 1 varsity team in the country.

    La Salle throttled Southwestern University’s late surge as the Green Archers hacked out a 70-61 victory over the Cobras to capture the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) crown yesterday at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    Finals MVP Jeron Teng pumped in 16 points while Jason Perkins and Almond Vosotros combined to prop the Archers back in the final six minutes as La Salle completed a 2-0 sweep of the best-of-three finals series.

    “It’s a great year for us,” said La Salle coach Juno Sauler after his Archers emerged as only the third team to dominate the national tournament on the same year it ruled its mother league.

    “There were lots of learning for us and hopefully these learning and experience will carry us through next year. Things happened that we should have avoided. It still showed our lack of maturity,” he said.

    The Archers, who took Game 1 with a 64-54 decision that avenged their Final 4 loss, looked headed for an easy victory after keeping the Cebu-based Cobras at bay for most of the game.

    But Landry Sanjo, who topscored for SWU with 16 points, Mark Tallo, Monbert Arong and Daryl Goloran combined to boost the Cobras within five, 56-51.

    Perkins and Vosotros countered for the Archers by teaming up for 10 points in a 12-0 blast that widened the gap again by 17 points, 68-51, going into the final two minutes.

    “Almond has always been that way, he has the ability to hit big shots,” said Sauler. “Perkins also played big.”

    “La Salle is not the champion of the UAAP for nothing,” said SWU coach Yayoy Alcoseba. “But we’re proud we were not blown out.”

    Vosotros shot 3-of-3 from three-point range to finish with 15 points and Perkins wound up with a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds.

    Both players joined Teng, Tallo and Sanjo in the Mythical Five, while Sauler bagged the Best Coach award.

    Far Eastern U was the first team to bag the UAAP and PCCL titles on the same year in 2003, before Ateneo matched the feat in 2009 and 2010.

    The Archers also pocketed P600,000 in cash and athletic goods, while the Cobras received P300,000.

    The scores:

    LA SALLE 70—Teng 16, Vosotros 15, Perkins 14, Reyes 7, Bollick 5, Van Opstal 4, N. Torres 4, T. Torres 3, Tampus 2, Montalbo 0, Salem 0.

    SOUTHWESTERN 61—Sanjo 16, Tallo 15, Goloran 12, Arong 10, Mohammed 3, Holper 3, Siewe 2, Bautista 0, Panerio 0, Ortega 0, Bregondo 0.

    Quarters: 19-13, 34-22, 53-42, 70-61
