MANILA--La Salle banked on a red-hot offensive game to clobber the University of Santo Tomas, 112-83, their UAAP men's basketball second round meeting on Tuesday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.

Despite having to play without Joaqui Manuel, who served his one-game suspension for his unsportsmanlike foul on Ange Kouame last week, the Green Archers made quick work of the Growling Tigers en route to the league's first 100-point blast by any team since Season 82 thanks to a efficient shooting highlighted by Schonny Winston's explosion.

Winston finished with 33 points, tying a league season-high, on 14-of-19 shooting, four rebounds, and two steals for La Salle, which moved up to 6-3 in the standings.

Balti Baltazar added 17 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists, two steals, and one block.

Evan Nelle had a perfect field goal game, making all of his five shots including all of his four three-point attempts and finished with 16 points alongside two rebounds, six assists, and two steals.

Paul Manalang led UST, which fell to 3-6, with 14 markers, three boards, and three dimes.

Bryan Santos, who returned after serving his own ban, added 13 points, seven caroms, one block, and one steal.
