Coach Pido Jarencio post game interview:
The Falcons thought they are always in a scrimmage. They would start really strong, even outscoring their opponent. But after awhile, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d get lost in the game and bury themselves in double-digit deficits until time expires.
The Falcons and the Growling Tigers fought bumper to bumper ending the first quarter tied at 16. However, USTÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s consistency overwhelmed Adamson, 74-62, to get win no. 8 at the Araneta Coliseum last September 9.
The Growling Tigers started to move forward in the second quarter that ended with UST on top by eight, 32-24.
Francis Allera nailed a three-pointer with 58.3 left in the third quarter to increase their lead to twelve, 49-37. UST maintained an 11-point advantage, 50-39, after three quarters.
UST sparked a 7-0 run with 9:08 minutes in the clock that put UST on top by fourteen, 57-43. The yellow shirts remained in control all through out the game for a 74-62 finish.
Meanwhile, Coach Pido Jarencio thinks it is too early to talk about the final four.
