Ateneo takes Game 1

Behind 23,000 ++ souls in Araneta Coliseum, the Ateneo Blue Eagles proved that they are the number one team in the UAAP today, beating De La Salle University 69-61.

To sum it up, gamestory would simply be dominance for the Eagles and sour shooting for the Archers. Rabeh Al Hussaini played tight in the early going but went on a rampage in the second half. Rookie Ryan Buenafe lead the Eagles in the first half with Cris Tiu playing only 8 minutes due to two personal fouls in the first quarter. Jai Reyes also played well ending the first half with a three-point shot stretching the lead to six. The Eagles never looked back since then.

La Salle missed wide-open looks, actually went 3-18 from the rainbow country. They could not control Rabeh's scoring inside-out. Jayvee Casio had decent numbers but didn't really had much fireworks.

Everything could come to an end this Thursday, Sept. 25. I expect DLSU to bounce back come game 2 but I wouldn't be surprised if Ateneo will get the crown by then.
