The UP Men’s Basketball Team became the only unbeaten team in UAAP Season 86 after beating NU. So how did the boys keep the win streak alive?
The team executed better on the court. They had the advantage in terms of field goal percentage (45.9% vs 36.7%) and moved the ball better with 5 more assists. They also outrebounded NU (44 vs 35).
Defense was also on point. They limited NU to their worst 3 point FG% this season (7.7%). Despite forcing less turnovers (16 vs 15), the team capitalized on these errors and converted more points from turnovers (14 vs 9).
The team still needs to improve their free throws and get more of those free points. Their 3pt field goal percentage can be better and they should avoid starting slow as what happened in this game.
