Mapua made a punching bag of Lyceum yesterday, beating their Intramuros neighbor by 100 points as the Red Robins romped to a 132-32 win in their NCAA junior basketball game at The Arena in San Juan City.
Lyceum could not live up to its team monicker Junior Pirates. They hardly projected the image of swashbuckling individuals, more like comics whose eye patches covered both eyes.
Such was the one-sided nature of the encounter that the Robins allowed their rivals to score just five points in the first quarter and then seven in the next quarter.
The Pirates appeared never to flinch, though. They played gamely on. After all, this was not the first time they were embarrassed.
Against San Beda last July 2, the Red Cubs flattened them by the score of 171-14.
They also lost to La Salle-St. Benilde, 122-41, Perpetual Help, 135-57 and Emilio Aguinaldo College, 119-54.
To their credit, nine of the Junior Pirates scored, evenly distributing the load, but none scored more than seven points.
With the win, the Red Robins improved to 3-1 – thanks to a near triple-double performance of John Diego.
The hard-working Diego finished with 21 points, 21 rebounds and seven blocks.
On the other hand, 11 players from Mapua turned in double digits in which the score after three quarters was: Mapua 104, Lyceum 20.
Thankfully, the Mapua defense cooled and allowed Lyceum players to leave the game somehow joyfully. They had their largest output in a quarter, 12, in the last 10 minutes.
In the other game, Letran hammered down Emilio Aguinaldo College, 82-63, for its second win in three games. The Brigadiers dropped to a 1-4 slate.
