MANILA – Terrence Romeo unloaded 15 of his 21 markers in the second half to help Far Eastern University clobber pesky University of the Philippines, 94-70, at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City Sunday afternoon.

The former Baby Tamaraws, who rose to prominence last year by scoring a record 83 points in a single junior’s game, listed four assists and two steals on his name.

Bigman Reil Cervantes knocked in 18 points on seven of 11 shooting while sophomore guard Ryan Roose Garcia added 11 markers and six boards en route to FEU’s fourth straight win in the 73rd UAAP men’s basketball tournament.

“Ako na siguro ang pinakamasayang coach kasi kami ang leading team. I’m happy for the boys, nag-step up talaga sila,” said mentor Glenn Capacio.

The hapless Maroons tried to shave the lead of the Tamaraws by moving closer to 52-57 with 4:05 remaining in the third quarter.

But that’s the last stand for the Maroons as graduating player Woody Co made an early exit due to an injury while the other members failed to snap FEU’s concrete defense.

Co-captain Martin Reyes made 16 points, nine of which came from beyond the arc, four rebounds and two assists while Magi Sison added 11 points for the Diliman-based squad’s losing cause.

The Tamaraws listed its highest scoring game since August 5, 2006, when it defeated Adamson University, 98-78.

It was also the season when FEU failed to enter the Final Four since the format was introduced in 1994 after finishing fifth in the eight-member league. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
