IN THE NICK OF TIME.
The UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament did not go as planned for University of Sto. Tomas.
Still, the proud program wasn’t going winless.
Steve Akomo, Reggie Boy Basibas, and Marvin Lee made sure of that as the Tigers finally growled for the first time in the season and clawed University of the East for a 88-85 decision on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.
Coming into the contest, one of the winningest schools in the league had dropped each and every one of their first 13 assignments.
And so, faced with the prospect of making history in the wrong way, UST showed what its capable of at long last.
And even as the Red Warriors came as close as 79-80, lady luck still looked like she was favoring the Tigers as Lee made good on a banked shot and Basibas’ steal led to a split from the stripe for an 84-79 advantage in their favor.
