The Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Adamson University Soaring Falcons at 4:00 P.M. on October 9, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Cubao, Quezon City.
A commanding 9-0 record is what the Blue Eagles wanted to stamp on their win-loss card while the Soaring Falcons are itching to end their three-game losing skid when the UAAP Season 82 resumes this afternoon at the Big Dome.
Team Ateneo is coming from a convincing victory against the UST Growling Tigers last October 5 at the MOA Arena.
“No more scare in the second round,” that might be the words whispering in the ears of the players as well as the coaches of the Blue Eagles.
To put that in reality, AdMU displayed a suffocating defense against their opponent to make sure that their winning streak extends to the second round of the tournament.
Thirdy Ravena led Ateneo offense during that basketball contest as he scored 17 points while SJ Belangel added 11 points and 4 rebounds.
For team Adamson on the other hand, they got shocked by the UE Red Warriors last October 5 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
The Soaring Falcons had their runs during that match to mount a comeback yet the tandem of Alex Diakhite and Rey Suerte were tremendous to keep the momentum to their side.
Jerom Lastimosa and Lenda Douanga were the scoring leaders for Adamson in that said match where they delivered 16 points each.
