Tweet Scoop: UST Tigers skipper Ed Daquioag churned out a career-best 34 points, 4 rebounds, and 6 assists to outlast the gritty UE Red Warriors, 83-76 on Wednesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Tigers almost saw their lead go down the drain in the latter part of the fourth quarter due to the sudden surge of the Warriors. Good thing Daquioag sparked them in crunch time to notch the important victory that enabled them to have a share of the top spot of the team standings with the FEU Tamaraws.
I guess we can now call him Ed "The Spark" Daquioag. Not necessarily because he plays like Caguioa, it's just that he can spark his team whenever he wants and their surnames rhyme.
To note, Daquioag's 34 points is now the highest scoring output by a UST player since former UAAP MVP Dylan Ababou's 30 points back in 2009.
