Kicking off as a two-time defending champion, the DLSU-D cagebelles overpowered the First Asia Institute of Technology and Humanities (FAITH) Lady Bravehearts by 33 points, 91-58, in the 10th season of the United CALABARZON Collegiate League women’s basketball tournament at the FAITH Gymnasium, Tanauan, Batangas yesterday, July 28.
Marking all sides of the cylinder, the green-and-white squad posted a 52.23 percent field goal throughout the game.
Pulverizing each other’s team defense early in the game, DLSU-D stalwart Agatha Azarcon and FAITH’s Maica Murillo led their teams in the first quarter with stellar offense before the Patriots ended the quarter in a sweeping fashion, 25-14.
Despite having the driver’s seat all game long, the DLSU-D squad threw a 17-3 tear in the start of the third canto, ballooning the lead, 67-35.
Showcasing their offense late in the fourth quadrant, FAITH standout Murillo racked up 13 points in a 15-5 run against DLSU-D, 89-58, but DLSU-D’s wide gap wrapped up the match, 91-58.
Continuing their championship run, the DLSU-D Patriots will square-off against its sister school, De La Salle-Lipa, on August 6 at the same gym.
