Adamson University booked an 81-64 conquest of Ateneo de Manila University to coast to their second win in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines high school boys’ basketball tournament yesterday at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The Baby Falcons improved to 2-0 ahead of their anticipated clash against fellow league-leader National University Nazareth School Bullpups on Saturday, 8 a.m. at the UST Quadricentennial Pavilion.

Despite the 17-point win, Adamson head coach Mike Fermin still emphasized their need to execute the game plan to a tee.

“I’m happy with the win but we were not able to follow our game plan,” Fermin said.

“We know that Ateneo’s main man in (Kris) Porter, I don’t think we were able to limit him. We’re happy that we got the win but, at the same time, disappointed defensively,” said Fermin referring to Porter, who erupted for 19 points with 15 rebounds.

Justine Garcia, a Grade 12 floor general, led the Baby Falcons with 17 points, four rebounds, and four assists while being a plus-30 in his 22 minutes and 20 seconds on the floor while Gene Carillo and Earl Medina chipped in 12 points apiece.
