UAAP Season 76: Closing The Books

For the first time in six years the Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles did not end the season as champions. In fact, they didn't even make it to the Final Four. But even though their dynastic run ended at five straight Men's basketball titles, UAAP Season 76 was still a relative success for Ateneo given all that had happened between the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
