UAAP Season 74: Ateneo Blue Eagles Championship Video

The Season 74 mission having been accomplished, the Ateneo Blue Eagles may now clown around. Here's their championship video put together by assistant coach Sandy Arespacochaga, student manager Jon Jacinto, and Ateneo Lady Eagles assistant coach Jover Chavez. The appearance of the coaching staff and team managers at the 6:16 mark is especially funny.

Emman Monfort was often the smallest player on the court, but almost always the one who played with the most heart.

Oh, and Mr. Atayde? The player you dubbed "Eman One Fourth" just brought your least favorite team to its fourth straight title. He wins.

Say what you will about Bacon Austria, but in grade school, high school, and college he brought home the proverbial bacon to Loyola Heights. As of today he may well be the player with the most basketball championships won for Ateneo.

In about two and a half hours the Ateneo Blue Eagles will take the first of two chances to annex four consecutive Men's basketball title and gain a share of history. May "The Fourth" be with them, indeed.
