UAAP Season 79 RECAP
UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament – until the second round, at least.
Drawing surprising yet timely makes from little-known Reggie Boy Basibas and Oliver De Guzman, the Growling Tigers withstood a late rally by the Maroons for a well-earned 83-77 decision on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum.
Losing a lead of as much as 11 and all of a sudden finding themselves in a dogfight at 71-all, coach Boy Sablan inserted reserves Basibas and De Guzman. The two wasted no time in making their presence felt and connived for back-to-back hits that jumpstarted an 8-0 push for a 79-72 advantage in favor of UST.

UST 83 – Vigil 18, Basibas 11, De Guzman 11, Lao 10, Subido 10, Faundo 6, Sheriff 6, Lee 6, Huang 4, Afoakwah 1, Macasaet 0
