We shot the ball just abysmally -- Baldwin

Ateneo de Manila University missed 45 of its field goal attempts.  The Blue Eagles just couldn’t find the bottom of the net. And that pretty much summed up how the Katipunan-based squad surrendered the match against Far Eastern University, 67-80, on Sunday in the 80th UAAP men’s basketball tournament at the Big Dome. Good thing Ateneo is armed with a twice-to-beat advantage in the Final Four so the Blue Eagles still have a chance to clinch a Finals spot against repeat-seeking De La Salle University on Wednesday.      But Ateneo head coach Tab Baldwin would definitely want to forget his wards terrible shooting day. “I think FEU played real well,” said the mentor, who saw his team go down 17 points late in the fourth. The Blue Eagles had a hellish 26-of-71 field goal clip (36.62%). They heaved 32 attempts behind the arc but swished in only 10. “We shot the ball just abysmally,” said Baldwin, whose squad suffered its second straight loss after winning its first 13 games. “We had open shots particularly in the first half, and we didn't hit them. I think our confidence kind of went down, and I hate to see that because with young kids, you don't ever want to see their confidence sort of erode a little bit,” he added. “And then in the second half, we started forcing it. I think our offense got worse because we tried to force shots, and you know, you just don't see our guys shoot airballs. We shot airballs tonight. Can't really tell you why, we just shot the ball badly.” It didn’t help that the Blue Eagles turned the ball over 16 times that FEU converted to 17 points. Baldwin also pointed out his boys were ‘too soft’ in contesting shots and the Tams took advantage, nailing their shots almost at 50% with 31-of-63 field goal shooting. “If you look at the stats, almost all of their shots were contested field goal attempts. But I don't think our contests had any sort of vigor to them,” he said. “Our defense seemed to lack the last 10% of effort that it needs to have an impact on a good offensive team, and tonight FEU was a good offensive team.” “Forget the regular season, whatever it means,” he added. “This is playoff basketball, and they were sharper on both ends. I have to figure out why we weren't.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Ex-Eagles Racela, Tolentino, Cani just lifted FEU over Ateneo

Yet again, Far Eastern University and Ateneo de Manila University are set to go the distance in their semifinals matchup. The Tamaraws and the Blue Eagles, whichever the twice-to-beat team between them is, have gone to a knockout bout four times in the last 17 years. The most recent of which has been set now in the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament after the boys from Morayta topped the Katipunan-based team, 80-67, on Saturday. That discards Ateneo’s twice-to-beat advantage and then sets up a knockout bout on Wednesday. Much of FEU’s big-time win was thanks to head coach Olsen Racela and key cogs Arvin Tolentino and Hubert Cani. Racela called the shots for a game plan that outworked all of the erstwhile league-leaders while Tolentino and Cani scored 13 and 11 points, respectively. Those three just so happened to be former Blue Eagles. For Racela, now the Tamaraws’ mentor, facing his alma matter is no big deal. “Wala naman. Nagkataon lang na sila ang kalaban ko sa Final Four,” he told reporters. He then continued, “Pero doesn’t matter kung sino kalaban ko. I’m just cherishing the experience of going up agianst different coaches. It just so happened na Ateneo ang kalaban.” Racela was part of Ateneo’s championship in the late ‘80s. Tolentino only shared the same sentiment. “Wala na rin sa akin yung ganun, (facing my) former team. Kumbaga, natanggal na rin dahil nasanay na ako kasi nakalaban na namin sila sa summer leagues and dito sa UAAP twice (sa eliminations),” he said. The sweet-shooting big man wore the blue and white in Seasons 77 and 78 before transferring to Morayta. And there, Tolentino reiterated that he has found his home. “Sa FEU, yung spirit, na-adopt ko na rin kaya naisip ko nang hindi na ‘to sayang. Hindi na yung, ‘Sayang, sana nandun ako (sa Ateneo),” he shared. He then continued, “Kasi tinanggap ako nang buong-buo ng FEU.” Cani, Tolentino’s teammate both in Ateneo and then in FEU, said their sights remain set on the bigger picture. “Siyempre, masarap yung panalo, pero laging sinasabi ni coach Olsen na next play. Itong game na ‘to, tapos na ‘to at iisipin na namin yung next game,” he expressed. Racela, Tolentino, Cani, and the rest of the Tamaraws figure in a do-or-die matchup with the Blue Eagles on Wednesday at the MOA Arena. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
