Monfort powers Eagles past Maroons; Archers snare BulldgosThis was the first Ateneo game this season that I missed entirely, although it wasn't because I was sure of a victory against the cellar-dwelling UP squad. I had an exam last Saturday so I had to miss what turned out to be Emman Monfort's career game.

MANILA, Philippines—Emman Monfort had been showing crack form in practice. On Saturday, the diminutive Ateneo guard flashed his deadly shooting for everyone to see.
Monfort unloaded 15 of his 23 points from beyond the arc as the Blue Eagles rolled past the University of the Philippines Maroons, 75-59, to grab a share of second in the 73rd UAAP men’s basketball tournament yesterday at the Araneta Coliseum.
The Lady Eagles also beat the UP Lady Maroons, 64-61. They're now fifth in the standings with 3 wins and 4 losses.
