Just how did University of Santo Tomas beat No. 2 seed University of the Philippines over the weekend?

In a discussion with "The Score," former FEU Tamaraw Carl Bryan Cruz and former UP Fighting Maroon Jett Manuel said the Tigers employed strategies that befuddled the Maroons' offense.

"Meron silang mga schemes. Sometimes nagfu-full court press sila then half court press, so they were able to dimish 'yugn shot clock at nararattle ang UP," said Cruz.

According to Manuel: "I think (UST) just forced UP to play outside their comfort zone . . . 'Yung positioning nila and the way they handled and forced UP, hindi na naging comfortable from the get-go pa lang."

This resulted to UST routing UP 89-69. — "The Score," ABS-CBN Sports and Action, Nov. 11, 2019
