Ateneo crushes NU by 34 points to stay spotless in Filoil Preseason

Ateneo de Manila University remains the pacesetter in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament all while flexing its muscle up against a UAAP rival. Drawing contributions from up and down their lineup, the Blue Eagles routed National University for a convincing 94-60 victory on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Thirdy Ravena fronted the charge with 20 points while new reinforcement Angelo Kouame had 12 markers to his name. With Ravena on-point from the get-go, the reigning and defending UAAP champions blazed to a 26-10 start in the first quarter.

Conversely, the Bulldogs now find themselves in a must-win situation as their latest lost drops their record to 2-5. Shaun Ildefonso was the only one in double-digits for them in this one with 16 points.

Nigerian powerhouse Bright Akhuetie posted a 17-point, 16-rebound double-double and Jun Manzo chipped in 13 markers of his own in the Fighting Maroons’ fifth win in a row after a 0-3 start to the tournament. With Juan GDL injured and Desiderio and Javi GDL tending to their studies, Janjan Jaboneta also stepped up with nine points, none bigger than a big-time triple with under a minute remaining. Overcoming the absence of its top guns, State U moved to solo fifth in Group A still win one assignment left in its schedule. Reymark Acuno paced the now 2-4 Red Warriors with 14 points. Meanwhile, Adamson University is the first team to deal a defeat to College of St. Benilde with an 80-60 whopping.
