The victors failed to even make the Final Four of the NCAA.The Heavy Bombers seized control of the game early, stifling La Salle’s attack while leaning on Tey Teodoro’s hot start. Teodoro finished with 17 points while Jed Mendoza added 15 for JRU, which forced the Archers to 4-of-32 shooting from beyond the arc.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

Missile-capable frigate BRP Jose Rizal inches closer to entering PH Navy’s fleet “We must be mistake-free tomorrow (Sunday),” said Rushton.Having thoroughly analyzed Pacquiao’s previous fights, Rushton is taking a cue from what Pacquiao did to Ricky Hatton in 2009, when he flattened the Briton in just two rounds.Rushton said Hatton made a mistake and paid the price.Claiming that Horn is competent and technically proficient to adapt to whatever Pacquiao will bring to the ring, Rushton promised a “Bloody Sunday.”Though they’ve stated that Pacquiao’s chin will be a prime target, owing to what Juan Manuel Marquez did to him in 2013, Rushton insists Hop has a large target area.ADVERTISEMENT To proceed with caution is what trainer Glenn Rushton wants Horn to do in the headliner of “Battle of Brisbane.”Rushton, who has charted an extensive 10-point plan to improve their chances of dethroning Pacquiao, said Horn should stick to it once the bell rings and when it ends.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

(Photo by JOHN PYE / AP)BRISBANE, Australia—There will be no rush for Jeff Horn in the first round. Instead, he’ll measure Manny Pacquiao’s distance before testing his speed and power.Afterwards, Horn will try to break down Pacquiao’s body before going for the kill on the later rounds.ADVERTISEMENT LaVine scores 42, Chicago rallies late to beat Cavs Thousands join Kalibo Ati-atihan despite typhoon devastation “We’re prepared to hit him in the head, body, and wherever,” said Rushton.Not only that, the mixed martial arts expert and self-made millionaire swears Horn has everything in hisarsenal.“He can hit from long range, middle range and short range,” said Rushton.Horn’s unpredictability will also be a key factor in his bid to stun Pacquiao, and probably send him into retirement, according to Rushton.“He throws punches from everywhere. He can turn southpaw like Manny, he can hit with right hand leads and can move and fight from angles that Manny hasn’t encountered before.”In other words, Rushton believes Horn’s so good, Pacquiao will look bad on Sunday.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite End of his agony?
