Napa technical fires up Bullpups in victory versus Eaglets

strong>TEAM STANDINGS /strong> br /> Adamson 7-0 br /> NU 7-1 br /> FEU-Diliman 5-2 br /> Ateneo 4-4 br /> DLSZ 2-5 br /> UPIS 2-5 br /> UE 1-6 br /> UST 1-6 John Lloyd Clemente and Rhayyan Amsali were both in foul trouble, Nazareth School of National University was getting outwitted and outworked, and just his second loss in the UAAP 79 Juniors Basketball Tournament was staring Jeff Napa in the face. Add to that what he deemed to be a questionable call and Napa had enough – entering the playing court in vehement opposition and getting called for a technical foul for his troubles. Taking their mentor’s cue, the Bullpups also got back to business in what proved to be a decisive 23-9 third quarter run that eventually ended as a 78-71 triumph over Ateneo de Manila High School on Saturday at the San Juan Arena. Behind a balanced attack, the Blue Eaglets mounted a 38-33 advantage at the half. Things were looking even better for them when Amsali and Clemente got their third and fourth fouls, respectively, near the middle of the third. It was at that point, however, that Napa reacted to another foul called on another one of his players and took the “T.” Captain Clemente then huddled his teammates just as Dave Ildefonso missed the freebie. There was no stopping NU from that point and the 23-9 rally took back the lead for them, 56-47. “Naging energizer talaga yung technical ko para magising yung boys na hindi namin sila iiwan,” Napa expressed. In the end, the Bullpups scored their fifth win in a row and seventh overall in eight games to remain in solo second. Clemente and Amsali only combined for 13 points, but the bench more than made up for their missing production. “Naghihintay lang naman ng pagkakataon second group ko. Alam ko namang lahat yan, mag-step up,” Napa said. Indeed, all from the bench, Karl Penano muscled his way into 19 points, Paul Manalang scored 16 of his own, and Muhammed Sarip was a pleasant surprise with 10 markers and nine rebounds. On the other hand, Ateneo saw their three-game winning streak come to an end as its frontline got dominated in inside points, 32-48. At 4-4, however, they are still solo fourth. BOX SCORES NU 78 – Penano 19, Manalang 16, Sarip 10, Amsali 7, Clemente 6, Coyoca 5, Tolentino 5, Malonzo 4, Callejo 2, Fortea 2, Dela Cruz 2, Atienza 0 ATENEO 71 – Belangel 14, Ildefonso 1, Salazar 8, Angeles 8, Manuel 8, Sotto 8, Berjay 6, Credo 6, Escalona 3, Laud 0 QUARTER SCORES: 13-13, 33-38, 58-52, 78-71 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»
