Ateneo Blue Eagles Bulletin # 4: Eagles Take Game 2 vs. Mapua in Fr.
68th UAAP Season
The Ateneo Men's Basketball Team-A chalked up win no. 2 with a 15-point
advantage over Mapua in their Fr. Martin's Cup match-up at the FEU gym
last Friday, 22 April. With Macky Escalona checking out of the game in
the 1st quarter due to an injury and Magnum Membrere sidelined with a
sprained ankle, rookie Jai Reyes stepped up to lead the Blue Eagle
attack with 22 points, scoring 6 out of 10 from beyond the arc.
Escalona suffered a boxer's cut over his right eye after receiving an
elbow on a rebound play early in the 1st period. He had to be taken to
the UST hospital and was immediately attended to because the deep wound
required two layers of stitches.
The blue and white broke away with a strong start in the 3rd period and
led by as many as 23 points in the ballgame. Coach Norman Black
mentioned that the team exemplified another strong 2nd half assault as
they did in their 1st game against STI College.
"We're becoming a good second half team, learning how to close games out
in the 3rd quarter. But there's still a lot to improve on. The real
gauge will be when we face PCU and UE in the coming games," he said.
Ateneo faces the reigning NCAA Champions PCU Dolphins on Wednesday, 27
April at 9:30 A.M. at the FEU gym.
Final Score: Ateneo 73 - Mapua 58
