The UAAP Basketball Season elimination round is almost over and some stat races are getting closer while some stat leaders are pulling away. With 3 games left for each team, these are the players who are making their marks so far:
RR Garcia, FEU 15.6
Alex Nuyles, AdU 14.6
Bobby Ray Parks is pulling away in the scoring race of season 74. The top 3 has not changed but the margin is now almost 5 points per game. Parks is the only UAAP player to average over 20 points a game. Parks averaged 28.3 points in the last 3 games.
Karim Abdul, UST 11.2
Aldrech Ramos, FEU 9.7
Emmanuel Mbe, Nu 9.2
Karim Abdul continues his streak of double digit rebounding with 25 rebounds in the last 2 games. He increased his per game lead to 1.5 a game. Ramos and Mbe are not gaining ground on Abdul and it seems that the UST center will be this year’s rebound king.
Emman Monfort, ADMU 4.5
Mike Silungan, UP 3.8
LA Revilla, DLSU 3.7
Ateneo’s Monfort retains his lead for another week as he averaged 6 assists in 2 wins this week. Silungan overtakes Revilla for the second spot.
LA Revilla, DLSU 1.9
Emman Monfort, ADMU 1.6
Kiefer Ravena, ADMU 1.6
Revilla is keeping the 2 Blue Eagles at bay after making steals in the Archers loss to the Eagles.
Lionel Manyara, ADU 2.5
Greg Slaughter, ADMU 2.3
N. Torres, DLSU 1.8
Manyara still leads the block category and La Salle’s Torres enters the Top 3 this week.
League Standings (This week):
Ateneo 11-0 (2-0)
Adamson 8-3 (1-0)
FEU 7-4 (1-0)
UST 6-5 (2-0)
DLSU 4-7 (0-2)
NU 4-7 (0-1)
UE 2-9 (0-2)
UP 2-9 (0-1)
The Final 4 picture is slowly shaping up as the top 4 is now at least 2 games ahead of the bottom 4. NU and DLSU can only enter if they sweep their last 3 games. The only question left: will ADMU get a sweep this season???
