The Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Far Eastern University Tamaraws at 12:30 P.M. on October 16, 2019 live from the SM Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay City.
The Blue Eagles are eyeing for their 11th straight wins this season and at the same time wanted to keep their record stain-free while the Tamaraws will try to make a follow-up victory when the UAAP Season 82 resumes in Pasay this afternoon.
Team Ateneo’s winning streak is still on and it’s blazing hot.
In their last outing, they have defeated their rival, the De La Salle University Green Archers at the Big Dome.
That win was their 20th straight victories which date back last year.
Adrian Wong served as the spark plug in their second-round with Lasal and tallied his season-high with 18 points while shooting 4-of-7 from beyond the three-point arc.
For team FEU, on the other hand, they’re coming from a win versus the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers last October 13 also at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
It was a tight ball-game for most of the quarters, yet, in the last two minutes of the game, the boys of coach Olsen Racela does the “Ra-Ra” mode and exploded with a 13-2 blast and sealed the deal.
That win gave the Tamaraws a third spot tie in the standings along with the Growling Tigers.
L-Jay Gonzales led his team in scoring with his 17 markers while teammate Royce Alforque scored 16 points.
