NCAA: Escamis, Red Robins exact revenge on Jr. Blazers

STANDINGS PERPETUAL 2-0 ARELLANO 1-0 LPU 2-1 JRU 1-1 LSGH 1-1 MAPUA 1-1 SAN SEBASTIAN 1-1 LETRAN 0-1 SAN BEDA 0-1 EAC 0-2 This early in the NCAA 94 Juniors Basketball Tournament, the finalists from a year ago have faced off. It was the same close contest for Mapua High School and College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills, but the result was definitely different. Clint Escamis did the heavy lifting while Dan Arches and Jonnel Policarpio provided the backup as the Red Robins avenged their Finals loss to the Junior Blazers with a convincing 95-81 victory on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Escamis, who fouled out in his first game in the season, bounced back big-time with 28 points, seven rebounds, and three assists. “Ginawa lang talaga namin yung gameplan namin. Nagbunga naman yung preparations namin so credit talaga sa mga bata,” head coach Randy Alcantara said post-game. The graduating guard also stepped up when it mattered most, dropping 10 of his output in the final frame. It was Escamis’ highlight layup and triple that capped off a massive 32-11 tidal wave bridging the third and fourth quarters that broke open a tied tally of 59 all and built up a 91-70 advantage in favor of Mapua. Arches and Policarpio did their part during that run and the former finished with 16 points, five rebounds, and four assists while the latter ended with 15 markers and four boards to help the Red Robins get into the win column after experiencing an upset to start the season. Last year, CSB-LSGH bested Mapua in three games to capture its first-ever championship. Now, the Red Robins are nothing but determined to reclaim the crown they were wearing before last season. “Siyempre, may gigil, pero dapat composed. Siyempre, ‘di kami papayag na 0-2 kami,” Alcantara said. For the defending champions, Joshua David fronted the effort with 19 points and eight rebounds while Joel Cagulangan had 14 markers, seven assists, and six boards. They suffer their first setback after a tournament-opening win. Meanwhile, Lyceum of the Philippines University is now streaking after John Barba lifted them over Jose Rizal University, 88-87. Barba dropped 30 points, including the basket and bonus in the dying seconds that proved to be the difference for the Junior Pirates. He also had eight rebounds, three assists, and three steals in the Junior Pirates’ second straight win in three games. On the other hand, the Light Bombers lost for the first time in two games despite a career-best effort from John Amores who scored 32 points.
