L-Jay Gonzales did it all for Far Eastern University, Saturday at Ynares Center here, as all of the Tamaraws did whatever they wanted against listless De La Salle University, 81-60, to barge back into the win column in UAAP 82 Men's Basketball Tournament.

Gonzales stuffed the stat sheet with 14 points, seven assists, six rebounds, and two steals and the Tamaraws stampeded all the way to a 6-6 standing. "Well, of course, we needed this win badly," a more than satisfied head coach Olsen Racela said post-game.

Three other teammates were in double-digits as Ken Tuffin had 14 points and five assists, Wendell Comboy had 12 markers and seven boards, and Xyrus Torres had 11 points of his own.

The green and gold waxed hot from the get-go, burying their opponents in a 27-11 hole after the opening salvo.
