For Coach Nash Racela, Mac Belo's clutch layup came at the perfect time.

"Perfect play saka perfect timing," Racela described the crucial shot that helped FEU win the opener of the UAAP Finals.

Belo drove past Alfred Aroga for the lay-in that opened a five-point Tamaraws lead with 44 seconds left in the match that they would hold on until the end.

Racela continued, "Mac knows how to make the big shots. It just so happened that NU made good adjustments in the fourth quarter."

Racela particularly cited the defensive gems that stifled the Tamaraws in the fourth.

"They made consecutive stops, so we had to look for another guy," he said.

Coach Nash, however, got a sigh of relief after Belo, who only shot 2-of-12 from the field prior to the deciding basket, made the layup.

"We're blessed that Mac delivered," Racela said.

This is the second consecutive time a Mac Belo shot won it for FEU as he knocked down the buzzer-beating triple that clinched the team's Final Four series against La Salle on Wednesday.
