La Salle advances to BLIA Cup Finals

Except for a brief scare down the stretch, the Green Archers flexed their muscle against Tsinghua University of Beijing earlier to the score of 103 to 95.

Ben Mbala again led the way for the team with 28 markers followed by Aljun Melecio with 21.

La Salle was in control the entire match and led by 22 going into the final period. But Tsinghua attempted to mount an endgame comeback as they waxed hot from the outside. They outscored the Archers 33-19 in the fourth period.

The team yesterday dumped Taiwan’s Chung Chou University 97-74. They will be facing either Universite de Lyon or Vanguard University for the championship tomorrow at 3:40pm

Of course, this game didn’t go without some highlight dunks from Ricci Rivero
