Eagles, Tigers, Warriors post 2nd victories.
DEFENDING champion Ateneo and other UAAP squads University of Santo Tomas, Adamson and University of the East streaked to their second straight victories to hold fort in the 17th Sandugo University Games in Bacolod City.
Fielding players mostly from their reserve team, the Blue Eagles still had too much firepower in pulling off an emphatic 94-67 victory over Holy Cross Davao College in Group A play at Bacolod Tay Tung High School Gym.
With Kiefer Ravena and Juami Tiongson hitting big shots, the Eagles recovered their bearings after Holy Cross came within 50-54 midway in the third period.
The Tigers, fueled by the solid play of UAAP finals veterans Kevin Ferrer and Aljon Mariano, dumped Ateneo de Davao, 101-79, at the WNU Gym, while University of the East continued to impress with a 102-66 demolition of University of San Agustin of Iloilo.
The Falcons played with ferocity on both ends of the floor and came away with a 98-63 win over John B. Lacson Maritime University.
