Maroons shock Archers for win No. 2

MANILA, Philippines - The UP Maroons sustained their promising bid in the 78th UAAP men's basketball tournament, stunning the fancied La Salle Archers, 71-66, at the Mall of Asia Arena on Thursday to post their first 2-0 start in 10 years.

Anton Manuel scored 14 points to lead the Maroons, who last won over the Archers in 2009.

This marks the first time the Diliman-based squad opened their season at 2-0 since 2009, when they beat UST and UE in their first two outings.

The Maroons kicked off their Season 78 campaign with 62-55 victory over the Warriors in last Sunday's opener.
