CEU crushes Lyceum; Diliman dumps Olivarez

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — Centro Escolar University flaunted its might again and annihilated Lyceum-Batangas, 117-60, in the fifth PG Flex Linoleum-Universities and Colleges Basketball League (UCBL) yesterday at the Paco Arena in Manila.

Jerome Santos and Jhomel Ancheta led the way as the Scorpions outscored the Pirates 30-8 in the first 10 minutes of play and coasted to another trouble-free victory.

CEU’s 57-point rout of Lyceum bettered its 53-point drubbing of PCU-Dasmariñas Monday.

In the other game, two-time defending champion Diliman College logged back-to-back wins by trouncing Olivarez College, 79-59.

Working on their sleek running game, the Scorpions practically put the outcome of the game almost beyond doubt after building an imposing 90-43 advantage going into the final 10 minutes.

The loss was the fourth straight for the Pirates who tried to limit the damage to no avail as seven CEU players scored in double figures with Santos top-scoring with 18 points and Ancheta adding 17.

Aldrin Ligon starred for Diliman’s third win in four starts by tallying 25 points spiked by six triples as they handed the Sea Lions their first defeat in three games in the tournament presented by Vespa.
