HOST Adamson University opened its campaign in the UAAP Season 76 basketball with a 79-67 victory over University of the Philippines on Sunday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
Guard Jericho Cruz paced the Falcons with 19 points along with six rebounds and three assists, while the frontline combination of 6’8 Ingrid Sewa and 6’5 John Brondial did a lot of damage to the Fighting Maroons.
“We just did what the coach’s instructions,” said Cruz, who tallied eight points in the first half to give Adamson an early 36-28 lead after two quarters. “Everybody contributed.”
This is the Falcons’ ninth straight win over the Fighting Maroons since August 21, 2008.
