UAAP Season 73 Eliminations: ADMU Game 7 Results

My team has now won a season-best three straight games.

MANILA, Philippines -- Just when it seemed the game was about to slip away, Eric Salamat provided the offensive spark the Ateneo Blue Eagles needed in the final stretch.

Salamat knocked in key triples to lift the suddenly cold-shooting Eagles past the University of the East Warriors, 80-73, on Sunday, at the end of the first round of the 73rd UAAP men’s basketball eliminations at the Phil-Sports Arena.

This was a great victory for the Blue Eagles. They trailed by six in the final quarter, but gutted it out. And while team captain Eric Salamat topscored, other Ateneo players also had their moments.

Hey Magic Tiongson—Pedro Cerrano called. Says there's a dance he wants to teach you.

It's kind of sad that the team Ateneo faced and beat in last year's Finals has had to debut new jerseys mid-season in order to jump-start their floundering campaign. And that the coach with the lustrous, advertising-ready hair has had to resort to technical foul-baiting theatrics to light a fire under his guys. How the (once) mighty have fallen.

The Lady Eagles lost in overtime to the DLSU Lady Archers, 64-60, and fell to 2-4.
