It’s been an terrific Saturday Showcase of the UAAP once again, featuring the sweet revenge of UE over De La Salle University as the main event (second game).
Both teams bagged 5 wins and a single loss, both against the Blue Eagles. And today, the difference amongst the Warriors and Archers has been spelled. Being dumped by the Green Archers in the UAAP 70 finals, the sweet revenge came along just this very afternoon, with an exceptional performance of all players, specially Martinez who shot 6/7 from the 3pt mark.
The Big Dome was filled with mixed emotions of both sides. The UE tribe cheering on their team as they start the late spark in the 3rd quarter with back to back 3points courtesy of Martinez. Whilst the Green Archers kept their voice high during the fourth as they went for an straight 8-0 run, which still was not enough to make and break the game of UE.
That said, with UE taking advantage over the Archers to attain the solo-lead as of this moment, I can say that all Ateneans spread over the Archipelago (including me) are very pleased with the result. Yet, the heat is on again for the Ateneans in tomorrows showdown, and that against the highly competitive UST Growling Tigers.
Will Chris Tiu finally make that golden basket which he failed to score against the Tamaraws? Or shall Buenafe make and break a good performance tomorrow? Well, that’s just another story that we’re going to witness on the Sunday Showdown.
