The DLSU Green Archers are looking for another win streak this season, but it will not be an easy task as they face the league-leading FEU Tamaraws that have won five out of the last six meetings against them.

Fresh off a great win against the UE Red Warriors, the Green Archers look to build a strong momentum going into the final stretch of the season. A win against the Tamaraws will definitely boost their confidence, and will separate them from the teams behind that are trying to sneak into the Final Four.

The Tamaraws have not disappoint from their tag as the favorites to win the titles this season. And it pretty  much showed in their first round match up where they beat Green Archers in a convincing fashion with a 93-75 rout. That game looked like a close one at the first half. Then the Tamaraws suddenly just switched gears and shellacked the Green Archers with a 20-0 run to end the third quarter. DLSU just couldn’t recover from that FEU onslaught as they lost for the second straight time during the early part of the season.

FEU were just waxing hot during that game, shooting at a very efficient 57.7% eFG while the Green Archers just had 38.7%. They were just on an offensive onslaught during that game with an 110.2 ORTG. Leading the way for Tamaraws in that game was their dynamic duo of Mac Belo and Mike Tolomia who combined for 37 points in that game. For La Salle, they were led by the brilliant efforts of their ace gunner Jeron Teng, who scored a season-high 29 points and grabbed 10 boards. But the his teammates failed to help him out.

This season has had a lot of ups and downs this season for the Green Archers. But they are starting to pick things up together, playing better team basketball the past few games. The rotations and match-ups have been more established compared to the early parts of the season. For the FEU Tamaraws, they have remained one of the best teams in the league this season. It seems like they have some sort of switch button which they would press to turn a tight contest into a blowout in just a few minutes. The Green Archers must play with a good composure and better defensive intensity. Hopefully, their shots will fall this time if they want to take this round against the Tamaraws.
