The Baby Falcons rebounded from last Sunday's season-opening loss to Nazareth School of National University with a 78-60 romp of De La Salle-Zobel in the UAAP Boy’s Basketball Tournament held at the Filoil Ecooil Centre in San Juan last January 18.

Peter Rosilio led the boys from San Marcelino with 14 points, eight rebounds and three steals, while JR Abayon chipped in 13 markers.

Teabol Garcia, who led the team in the previous game posted 12 points, five dimes and four steals for Adamson.

The Baby Falcons, who dropped a 76-79 decision to the Bullpups in the season opener, evened up their record to 1-1.

"Offensively, wala namang binago, yung depensa lang. Mas matindi ang pressure namin sa bola," head coach Mike Fermin said.

"We tried to make them [commit] a lot of mistakes. We scored 23 points off turnovers," he added.

Quarter Scores: 23-26, 39-39, 59-47, 78-60.
