MANILA, Philippines -- The Ateneo Blue Eagles and the Far Eastern University Tamaraws outplayed separate rivals Saturday at the start of the 10th Fr. Martin Division 2 Cup basketball tournament in St. Placid gymnasium of San Beda College in Mendiola, Manila.
Joma Adornado, son of former PBA Hall of Famer William “Bogs” Adornado, fired a game-high 27 points to lead the Blue Eagles to an 86-76 beating of Trinity University of Asia Stallions.
Adornado asserted himself at the start of the second half, touching off a 10-0 run with two triples.
As his father Bogs watched quietly from the gallery, Adornado’s treys allowed the Blue Eagles to overcome a 39-44 halftime deficit and eventually turn the game around with a 49-44 lead.
Fil-Canadian John Lasa and JP Siarot then struck with a pair of lay-ups, allowing the Loyola dribblers to take 60-53 spread.
Nicole Bolos led the Stallions with 27 points.
The Tamaraws, meanwhile, leaned on two timely triples from Giovanni Cruz and Rod Dennison to lift them past the Angeles University Foundation (AUF) Great Danes, 76-73, in this cagefest which is supported by Amazing Playground.
Adam Mohammed shot 15 points for the Tams while Dennison contributed 14.
In the junior division, Mark Tamayo and Griller Garcia made 21 points apiece as they led the AUF Junior Danes to an 80-76 win over Trinity.
^ Tournament organizers do not issue a complete schedule for the entire tournament, and as such only issue schedules every couple weeks or so. Aside from what is posted in Gameface, the organizers also send out schedules to the media people covering the Fr Martin Cup. Those are what we post as we get them. Sometimes there are some last-minute changes, i.e. one team will not be available all of a sudden for a given schedule. In cases such as these, that game is either postponed to a future schedule or another team is brought in to play in the unavailable team's stead.
