REIGNING MVP Afril Bernardino delivered a double-double effort as defending champion National University overwhelmed University of Santo Tomas 71-45 to stretch its winning run to 19 games on Thursday in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines Season 78 women’s basketball tournament at the Blue Eagle gym. Bernardino had 12 points and 12 rebounds and dished out six assists as the Lady Bulldogs overcame a sluggish first half to improve to 3-0. The lopsided loss ended the Tigresses’ two-game winning streak. Trixie Antiquiera, Gemma Miranda and Risa Paig contributed 11 points apiece for NU, which led by as much as 26 in the second half. De La Salle joined UST at 2-1 with a 54-45 win over Far Eastern University, with Ana Castillo scoring 15 of her 19 points from beyond the arc.
