Not a typo: the exact score sheet of Saint Clare’s 70-5 massacre of New Era.

NAASCU on Facebook     MANDALUYONG CITY – Saint Clare College of Caloocan massacred season host New Era University, 70-5, in what could be the most lopsided game in recent history in the opening of the 15th National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) women’s basketball tournament Saturday (September 5) at the Rizal Technological University Gym. The day also marked the opening of competition in the six-team Juniors Division for players aged 19 years and under.

The Lady Saints under new coach Drew de la Cruz held their opponents scoreless in the first and third periods. The Huntresses, who are making their debut this season, finally broke the ice with three free throws in the second and ended their misery with their lone field goal late in the final canto.

Judy Ann Sison led all scorers with 23 points followed by Sharry Briones with 12 and Gem Parina with 10. Three other teammates scored five or more points.

The defending champion Junior Saints of Coach JR Manansala opened their title-retention bid with a convincing 90-56 blowout of the Junior Hunters. Ramil Tero, who hit the winning shot in the championship game last season against Centro Escolar, continued from where he left off and pumped in eight points in the first period to give the Junior Saints the lead for good, 20-6.

New recruit Russell Fuentes topped Saint Clare with three triples en route to 15 points. Tero went to add six more points in the second period for a total of 14.

CEU banked on a strong fourth period to stop Our Lady of Fatima University, 49-43, in a meeting of two teams expected to crowd Saint Clare for the trophy. The Junior Scorpions outscored the Junior Phoenix, 14-7, behind key baskets by Rich Guinitaran and Mishaal Veron.

Guinitaran was the lone double-digit scorer in the low-scoring game with 14 points. Kurt Ian Trangia and Veron followed with seven markers each.

In the other game, the home squad RTU Junior Thunder made short work of the Philippine Christian University Baby Dolphins, 64-53. The wards of Coach Arlene Rodriguez settled the issue as early as the first period, 17-7, and slowly padded their lead to as much as 16 after three periods, 54-38.

Jonathan Boholano paced the Junior Thunder with 17 points. Nicole Liquanan followed with 16.

The Seniors Division will resume play on Monday morning (September 7) with a tripleheader at the RTU Gym. The said games will be televised over IBC-13 starting at 7:00 PM on the same day.
