Last year's runner-up Jose Rizal dug deep from its bench as it walloped Angeles U Foundation, 82-53, yesterday to join San Sebastian on top in the 85th NCAA basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan City.

James Sena led his team with 19 points and nine rebounds but it was John Agas who energized the Bombers by firing 13 points he laced with three booming triples off the bench to seal their fifth win in row.

"I must admit, the game was harder than the score indicated because I had to dig deep from my bench," said Jose Rizal coach Ariel Vanguardia. "I also have to give credit to John Agas who came up huge and energized my bench."

Earlier, Joshua Saret stole some of the thunder from the senior players after he literally lit up the scoreboard by exploding with a league high 89 points in a 171-43 massacre of Angeles U Foundation in juniors action.

The 5'8" Saret erased the league record 82 points scored by former teammate Keith Agovida in a 127-49 rout of Mapua, 127-49, on Sept. 4 last season.

The speedy Saret scored 22, 21, 19 and 27 by quarters and made 33 of the 54 shots he took he laced with a league-high 14 booming triples. He also made nine of his 10 foul shots to cap his magnificent scoring day.

Aside from his scoring feat, Saret also had 11 rebounds, 12 assists and 13 steals to cap the league's first quadruple-double since Ryan Buenafe, formerly of San Sebastian, made a habit of it two seasons back.

"It's good for the school, we're proud of him," said Jose Rizal's board representative Paul Supan. "We're excited to have him in our seniors team because he has already committed playing next year."

The Great Danes gave the Bombers some fight early in the game after the former trailed the latter by only eight points, 27-35, at the break.

That forced Vanguardia to go deep to his bench, and thankfully, got Agas to contribute significantly by scoring seven of his total points in the fourth quarter when Jose Rizal blew the game out of reach. AUF fell to its fourth loss against a win.

In the other game, Emilio Aguinaldo came out with its best performance thus far as it brought down Mapua, 80-69, for its first win after dropping its first four outings.

It was also the Cardinals' fourth setback against a win.
