The Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Far Eastern University Tamaraws at 4:00 P.M. on October 10, 2018 live from the Mall of Asia Arena.
The Tamaraws are looking to slay another top team of the UAAP 81 and improve their standings to second spot while the Blue Eagles will try to grab the opportunity to be in the top of the tournament for the first time this season.
Coach Olsen Racela’s FEU Tamaraws were able to escape the scare shown by the Adamson University Soaring Falcons. FEU gave up their 17-point led as the Falcons soared in the fourth quarter outscoring them 13-28.
The game went to overtime but the Tamaraws were successful on dealing the first defeat of Adamson.
“Nag-prepare lang kami ng sobra ng past week,” said FEU guard Hubert Cani. “Nagpapasalamat kami kasi sa amin binigay ang panalo, sa coaching staff, kay coach Olsen (Racela), sobrang ganda ng game plan namin kaya nanalo this game.”
Now that Adamson absorbed its first loss, they’re currently sharing the number one spot with the Blue Eagles.
For the first time this season, coach Tab Baldwin and his troops can take the solo top spot if they’re able to take care their 4:00 PM assignment.
In their last outing, Ateneo has no problem disposing the De La Salle University Green Archers, 71-55.
Angelo Kouame paced the Blue Eagles offense in that October 6 game with his 20 points and 11 rebounds while Anton Asistio added 12 points. Thirdy Ravena had another all-around game performance with his nine points, six rebounds and seven assists.
