PCCL: Tolomia powers FEU past San Beda

MANILA, Philippines – Mike Tolomia scorched hot in the third period as Far Eastern University grounded San Beda College, 62-56 in the semifinals of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) on Monday, December 9 at the Blue Eagle Gym.

The former PH youth standout scored 15 of his game-high 23 points in the crucial third period and wounded up with 4 rebounds and 4 assists to lead FEU.

The Morayta-based squad used a scintillating 15-4 run to turn a six-point halftime deficit to a 39-34 lead in the third period.

The Red Lions mounted a comeback in the fourth quarter after early foul trouble from FEU. A breakaway layup by Baser Amer trimmed the deficit to 50-53 but Tolomia proved to be too much as the Tamaraws completed a come-from-behind win. - with reports from Levi Verora/Rappler.com
