UAAP Season 73 | Game Review: UE Red Warriors vs DLSU Green Archers | Round 1
How many times in recent history have we seen the Red Warriors loss two times in a row?
Fleshing it out UE vs DLSU:
Free Flowing Dagger: For the 2nd time, the free flowing system of Coach Chongson misfitted again the Red Warriors. In this game, Paul Lee is the lone player on Coach Chongson’s line up that can withstand a system with no system.
Maybe it had worked last year for UE. But last year’s line up were compose of a veteran frontline that are mature enough to make their own decision. Unlike the current line up who lacks the necessary experience and maturity to decide for themselves.
Ineffective Frontline & Bench: The big men of UE only produced a dense 12 points output against the more athletic DLSU squad who were so active when they produced 62 points to top their UE counterpart.
Then, the Green Archers completely buried the Red Warriors in the bench points production, when DLSU had made 45 points from the bench, against UE’s 19 bench points.
Rebounding Nightmare: Another ugly stats was the Red Warriors’ lame rebounding performance. The Red Warriors only made 26 rebounds compared with DLSU’s 78. UE was definitely been out hassled in the offensive reboumd department. The Green Archers made 42 offensive rebounds against UE’s loathsome 6 offensive rebounds.
We can go on and on with the stats sheet and will just only prove that the Green Archers had totally dominated everything. We’re not sure if the Red Warriors were unprepared for their DLSU match, i.e when they allowed the Green Archers to dominate the 3rd quarter, everyone knows that the 3rd quarter is the barometer of DLSU’s game, but still they gave up 28 points for DLSU. And, when Coach Chongson experimented a 1 forward/ 4 guards lineup against a lean and tall DLSU squad.
In the past, the Red Warriors already have experience this kind of scenario, and they’re able to take the necessary adjustment for their shortcomings.
But this current batch of Red Warriors are maybe still in a state of coma of last year’s finals game 3.
