Simon Atkins Leads Green Archers Over Tamarraws

SIMON Atkins bucked a nasty cut above his left eye to lift La Salle to a stunning 80-66 conquest of league-leading Far Eastern University and solidify its hold of fourth spot heading into the crucial last two weeks of elimination round competition in the UAAP.

Atkins suffered the cut after colliding with RR Garcia in the first quarter and had to leave the game to get medical attention. The cut required three stitches to close, but it seemed to fire up the Archers’ captain as he went on to scatter 14 of his game-high 19 points in the second half, including 10 in the payoff period where DLSU outscored FEU 26-9.
