The University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers are one of the hottest teams in the second round of the UAAP Season 74. They currently have a 5-1 win-loss record in the second round which is highlighted by their victories against two of the best teams in the UAAP- the Adamson Falcons and the FEU Tamaraws. The Tigers are getting better as the Season reaches its Final 4 and their vast improvement can be traced to the much improved end-game maturity and poise of their players especially Jeric Fortuna, Karim Abdul and Jeric Teng.
This week, among those 3 UST players, Jeric Teng was the brightest. He's currently averaging 13.8 points per games and in their big win against Adamson he scored 20 big points to seal the win for the Tigers. And also, he is part of the Top 5 scorers in the UAAP right now.
Due to his fine performance this week, the UAAP gave him the UAAP Press Corps Player of The Week Award. He is the 3rd UST Tiger to receive the Player of the week Award. The first two were Jeric Fortuna and Karim Abdul.
