Dave Ando was an unstoppable force in the paint as University of Santo Tomas fended off University of the East, 72-61, in the UAAP Season 84 men’s basketball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City Tuesday night, April 12.
Ando provided the spark in the third period which enabled the Growling Tigers to erase an early 10-point deficit and lead by three points, 54-51, heading into the payoff period.
The Red Warriors, behind the three-point shooting of Harvey Pagsanjan, attempted a late comeback but Joshua Fontanilla, Nic Cabanero, Paul Manalang, and Sherwin Concepcion joined forces down the stretch and put the finishing touches as UST improved to a 3-5 record.
The hapless UE, for its part, remained winless in eight straight games.
