The Baby Falcons squeaked past FEU-DIliman,  73-71, to bag their second win in the UAAP 85 Boys’ Basketball Tournament held at the FilOil EcoOil Centre in San Juan, January 22.

Peter Rosillo led the San Marcelino squad with 17 points, five rebound, three assists and one steal.

The Baby Falcons’ lead guard scored 12 markers in the payoff period, including the go-ahead layup, which sealed the victory for his team.

FEU-D tried to mount a comeback but eventually came up short because of their free throw woes. A costly missed jumper from one of the league’s top scorer John Ray Pasaol also did not help the Baby Tams’ cause.

The Baby Tams were blowing out their foes with an average lead of 35.5 points before bowing to Adamson.

AdU is now tied with UST and FEU-D at the second to fourth ranks as National U still leads the pack.

Coach Mike Fermin’s crew will next face University of the Philippines Integrated School this January 25.
