Estrella, Oraeme explode as Mapua trample Lyceum


Allwell Oraeme posted another monster double while Andrew Estrella led the way in the fourth frame.

Mapua banked on Oraeme and Estrella’s performance to whip Lyceum of the Philippines, 90-75, and get back on winning track in the ongoing NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament.

Reigning Most Valuable Player (MVP) Oraeme posted double-double with 27 points, 25 rebounds and four blocks while Estrella drained all his 12 markers in the fourth to fuel Mapua’s late rally and bounce back from their loss against JRU last week.

CJ Isit and Laurenz Victoria added 19 and 15 markers, respectively, to lift the Cardinal’s standings to 7-4.

Wilson Baltazar chipped in 17 markers for the Pirates which dropped to 5-6.
