Andrei Caracut and Aljun Melecio finished what Justine Baltazar started as De La Salle University barged back into the win column in the UAAP 82 Men's Basketball Tournament by bringing down Adamson University, 68-61, Saturday at Ynares Center here.

Caracut had no makes from deep until the last two minutes of the game when his back-to-back threes energized the 10-3 finishing kick that put the Green Archers back inside the winners' circle now at 2-3. "Thank you, Andrei, for the three-point shots," head coach Gian Nazario said post-game.

In all, the graduating guard hit two triples and one free throw while Melecio chimed in three markers of his own in the game-winning run that put an end to the Taft-based team two-game slide.
