League Leaders Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles are up for a very though challenge, beating fourth placer UE Red Warriors who did quite a run by beating 2 big names in the UAAP. The UST Growling Tigers, and the FEU Tamaraws, back to back. Can the Warriors keep it up and strike Ateneo for a third win and the first win over Ateneo in this year’s season?
The Jesuits of Katipunan accomplished a perfect 2nd round of elimination without a single loss. Thus, making them league leaders at 13W and 1L, that against the FEU Tamaraws. After the tight match against the University of the East in the 2nd round, and some power triples from Buenafe and Tiu in the last couple of minutes; the Eagles were able to extend the game to overtime, thus bagging home the win. Will it be another game like that again? Or will King Eagle, Chris Tiu pull off from beyond the arc from the start?
Ateneo de Manila with the twice to beat advantage under their belt might play a little soft, but who knows? It’ll be a do-or-die match for the Warriors, and with no doubt, the Blues won’t hand it over that easy. Just like they denied Arch Rivals De La Salle in their final assignment for the 2nd round, with a impressive 8 point deficit.
It’s difficult to say who wins or looses. Anything can happen, and let’s see what will happen.
