The DLSU Green Archers force a winner-take-all showdown in the UAAP Finals after beating the UST Growling Tigers in Game 2, 77-70.

La Salle dominated the boards and led by as much as 17 points in the first half to fend off UST.

UST came close to forcing an overtime but baskets from Norbert Torres, LA Revilla, and Jeron Teng sealed the decisive win for DLSU.

The Tigers are trying to become the first number 4 seed to win the championship, while the Archers hope to repeat their 1999 feat when they bounce back from a Game 1 loss to win the title in three matches.

Game 3 is set on Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena. -- The World Tonight, ANC, October 5, 2013
