First game: Cardinals vs. Stallions
The Mapua Institute of Technology Cardinals had trouble early on against the Manuel L. Quezon University Stallions before taking control in the 3rd quarter and eventually winning the game therefore taking the 3rd Elite Eight spot where they will meet the
Second game: Green Archers vs. Warriors
USC came out of the gates with defensive intensity, choosing for a half court press but La Salle slowly came back (Maierhofer and Casio DID not start the game)--- the last one a power slam by Rico off an assist from JV. End of first quarter, 17-10 in favor of the Archers.
Sidenote: #13 from USC had a break away layup.. Stared off PJ Walsham and shows a little bit of the tongue (a little jordanesque so to speak)... and misses the lay-up.. Walsham returns the favor (a wider smile and tongue) as the Archer got the rebound.
And then, Smartbro died on me... Which brings me to the final score: 71-51. Picture paints a thousand words even in basketball games so i might as well post the available images in a bit... (Uploading from S'BRO is slower than Gregory Slaughter--- ok, i hope that is an absolute wrong statement because i want him used in our future national team.)
