MANILA, Philippines - Ateneo's main man spent more time riding the bench, but the Blue Eagles still proved unstoppable, rolling past the University of Santo Tomas Tigers, 93-77, yesterday to grab the solo UAAP men’s basketball lead at the PhilSports Arena.

A bristling shooting performance starring the 5-foot-6 Emman Monfort carried the Blue Eagles to their third straight triumph despite reigning MVP Rabeh Al-Hussaini riding the bench due to early foul trouble.

Monfort, who was cut from the team last year, unloaded 18 points from three-point range to finish with a career-high 20.


In its third game of the season the team finally arrested its slow-starting ways. Ateneo shock troopers (Monfort, Ryan Buenafe, Nico Salva, Juami Tiongson et al.) also delivered big time, scoring close to two-thirds of the Blue Eagles' total.


The Ateneo Lady Eagles lost to UP and are now at 1-1.
