UAAP Season 72 Final Four: Go (Home) USTe

What did I say?
Eagles back in UAAP finals

MANILA, Philippines - Everything that Ateneo seemed to do right this season was in full display in a dominating game that secured for the Blue Eagles the first UAAP championship berth.

With a solid performance from start to finish, the Eagles pecked the University of Santo Tomas Tigers to submission, 81-64, Sunday and earned a shot at defending their men’s basketball crown at the Araneta Coliseum.

The Eagles recorded a staggering 50.8-percent shooting clip to back up a stifling defense that held the Tigers, this year’s top scoring team, to one of their lowest outputs this season.

Growling Tiger Dylan Ababou, this year's Most Valuable Player, missed 20 of 29 shots and had 5 turnovers. His teammate Jeric Teng, the newly crowned Rookie of the Year, clanged 12 of 17 attempts.

One thing that didn't make the Studio 23 telecast:
The UST drumline played Ateneo cheers after the game starting with "GO ATENEO!". The Blue Babble Battalion returned the favor with a "GO USTE". They were cheering us on to the Finals. Thank You UST. Sweet.

Man, I miss watching the games live.

Ang sabi ko, parang clorox ang amoy… Tapos nung inumin namin… parang clorox na nga.
