La Salle beats NU for their third straight win

De La Salle University stretched its winning streak to three games after tripping Final Four-bound National University, 63-58 Wednesday. 

The Green Archers boosted their post-season bid and improved to an even 6-6 at solo fourth, while the Bulldogs fell to 9-4, seeing their four-game winning streak stopped.   

Penny Estacio delivered all of his 13 points alone in the third frame to outscore the entire NU squad which only managed nine and enter the fourth with the Green Archers up by 11, 48-37. 

Evan Nelle then took over in the payoff period with eight of his 10 points to keep La Salle afloat en route to the victory.
