Lyceum eliminates De La Salle from Nike Summer League

Wednesday, 3 June 2009 18 Comments

LYCEUM University proved it was no fluke and showed De La Salle University the door in the 2009 Nike Summer League.

It took two overtime periods for the Pirates to defeat the UAAP powerhouse for the second time in the tournament and book their place in the quarterfinal round via a 73-72 squeaker last June 2 at the FEU Gym.

Lyceum, which trailed by as much as 13 points early in the game, had nothing to lose as it climbed back into the game and forced the Green Archers to commit turnovers in the second quarter.

It was at the 1:06 mark of the third period that Lyceum first grabbed the lead through a Reggie Rimando basket. A see-saw battle ensued thereafter with Lyceum leading by as many as seven points – their biggest in the game – with under two minutes left in the fourth quarter. The game momentarily ground to a halt after technical fouls were slapped on Lyceum’s Jerard Ong and DLSU’s Simon Atkins. Five straight points by Peejay Barua and a two-pointer by Kish Co forced a 58-all deadlock after 40 minutes of action.

In the first overtime period, La Salle drew first blood but was held scoreless in the last three minutes, giving Lyceum the chance to rattle in five straight points to force another extra five minutes.

Down the stretch in the second overtime, the Pirates missed a total of four free throws. At the 1:19 mark, Lyceum increased its lead to five thanks to a three-pointer by Joseph Abaya. This was canceled out by Peejay Barua’s own trey, which trimmed the DLSU deficit to two, 73-71, with 1:06 remaining. Green Archer playmaker LA Revilla was then sent to the free throw line with 35 ticks left and split his charities to cut the Pirate lead to one, 73-72.

The Intramuros-based squad’s failure to convert in the ensuing possession gave DLSU the opportunity to take the game. However, Revilla failed to set a play in the final 15 seconds, handing Lyceum the last quarterfinal ticket and a matchup with San Beda College.

Abaya topscored for the Pirates with 25 points while Chris Aqualiful added 15 points and 17 rebounds. Barua, on the other hand, had 22 markers for the Green and White.

The scores:

Lyceum-Manila 73 – Abaya 25, Aqualiful 15, Rimando 10, Guevarra 8, Difuntorum 8, Anactia 5, Ong 2, Cayabyab 0, Mendoza 0.

De La Salle 72 — Barua 22, Bagatsing 9, Malabes 9, Villanueva 8, Mangahas 7, Co 6, Revilla 5, Mendoza 3, Tolentino 2, Atkins 0, Webb 0, Marata 0, Andrada 0, Banal 0.

Quarter scores: 13-20, 25-28, 44-39, 61-61 (1st OT), 66-66 (2nd OT), 73-72.

  • Aquila Legis says:

    to the “beasts”

    Queen James over here is right. Talk IS cheap.

    I don’t really get why you have to stir up a ruckus here. What do you guys benefit from it? It makes no sense, and both of you are just making fools of yourselves.

    So unless you’re ready to put up a REAL fight, cut the crap? I’m no La Sallite, but come on. A little diplomacy here, please? Thank you.

  • bravo says:

    @ the fake beast

    oh really? binati ng La Salle ang Lyceum nakipag kamayan pa nga mga players ng La Salle sa Lyceum kahapon eh.

  • Totoge says:

    Napansin nyo ba na parang humina ang uaap ngayong taon? Dati kahit team b lng ang nglalaro sa summer leagues, okey lng. D pala ganun kalakas ang uaap kung para sa ibang leagues.

  • Eagleheart says:


    ganyan tlaga pag pre season games. Most of the time, the media and crown hungry teams strive more. Kaya ganyan, to avoid also injuries which could be crucial during UAAP time.

    And lastly, this is the best opportunity to seek chemistry from the team and expose young players to the league

  • BANKMAN says:


    injuries?? nanuod ako ng live! double overtime pa nga! hindi nga alam ni pumaren anong ng yari sa team nya, talagang pangit lang laro ng la salle ngayon! give some credit naman to lyceum, magaling din naman ang basketball team nila…
