UAAP: Ateneo marches forward to solo second after mowing down NU

Even after a loss to open the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament, Ateneo de Manila University still stands in the top two of the standings. Drawing contributions from up and down the roster, the Blue Eagles dominated National University from start to finish for a 72-46 rout on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum. Thirdy Ravena and Matt Nieto didn’t even have to do much in terms of scoring as the defending champions got much welcome contributions from the likes of Mike Nieto and Adrian Wong in their second straight win following a season-opening loss. Ravena still top-scored with 13 points, but only had to play 13 minutes while Matt Nieto just had two points in 16 minutes. That didn’t prove to be a problem as Mike Nieto and Wong each scored seven points while Anton Asistio also added nine markers. The balance extended to the other end as well as Ateneo allowed no more than 16 points in each and every quarter. “I thought our defense was the way we wanted it to be. There’s no excuse to not play that way after this,” head coach Tab Baldwin said. In fact, the defense was so suffocating that Bulldogs’ super rookie Dave Ildefonso, averaging 17.5 points in the first two games, only had four points in this one. All in all, they only allowed their opponents to make good on 18 of their 65 attempts. With that end-to-end dominance, the Blue Eagles separated themselves from the pack and seized solo second in the standings. “When we get that defensive effort, we can be a prospectively hard team to bet,” coach Tab said. Trending in the opposite direction are the Bulldogs who were dealt back-to-back defeats following a season-opening win. Enzo Joson was the lone player in double-digits for them with 11 points. BOX SCORES ATENEO 72 – Ravena 13, Asistio 9, Wong 7, Nieto Mi. 7, Go 6, Verano 6, Black 6, Kouame 5, Belangel 5, Andrade 3, Nieto Ma. 2, Daves 2, Mamuyac 1, Navarro 0, Mendoza 0, Tio 0. NU 46 – Joson 11, Tibayan 8, Clemente 7, Gallego 6, Ildefonso D. 4, Ildefonso S. 4, Rike 2, Galinato 2, Malonzo 2, Gaye 0, Diputado 0, Sinclair 0, Aquino 0, Yu 0, Morido 0, Salim 0. QUARTER SCORES: 11-9, 33-18, 49-30, 72-46 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

UAAP: NU s Dave I: I think I made the right decision, Coach Tab

After averaging 17.5 points in his first two games in the UAAP Seniors, Dave Ildefonso was shackled down to just four points on Saturday. “Lakas ng katawan ni Thirdy [Ravena] e. Maganda yung game plan talaga nila,” he told reporters post-game after National University succumbed to Ateneo de Manila University, 46-72. Of course, Ildefonso’s worst game thus far in the Seniors had to come against Ateneo, the very same school he left. As it turns out, the Blue Eagles really saw to that. “I think that we wanted Dave to rethink that decision,” head coach Tab Baldwin in an earlier interview. For the past three years, Ildefonso had worn the blue and white as a Blue Eaglet and in his last season there, won a championship. And so, Katipunan’s Seniors squad did its all to keep the graduating players from that championship core – Ildefonso, SJ Belangel, Jason Credo, Joaqui Manuel – together. Only Belangel and Credo stayed in Ateneo, however, while Ildefonso and Manuel transferred to NU and De La Salle University, respectively. Even so, Ildefonso said he has no regrets about his transfer. “I don’t think I made the wrong decision in switching schools. Whatever statement they were sending me, I didn’t get it,” he said after being told about Coach Tab’s words. The super rookie went on to re-emphasize that he wanted to make an immediate impact for whichever team he was joining – and he wouldn’t have been able to do that with the fully loaded defending champion Blue Eagles. “Isipin mo, si SJ, limited minutes. Kung nag-stay ako dun, mas lalo na ako, mas limited,” he shared. He then continued, “I think I made the right decision, Coach Tab, and I’ll see you soon.” Looking at the stat sheet, Belangel, the top senior of the most recent graduating class, only played 12 minutes for Ateneo. Still, Ildefonso made it clear that he harbors no ill will towards his former school. Asked if he’s looking forward to the next NU-Ateneo matchup, he answered, “I’m not thinking about that. I’m just thinking about Adamson next and trying to bounce back.” Indeed, all that’s on the mind of the 18-year-old is moving forward from his four-point performance. “Part din naman ‘to ng (buhay) ng athletes, ups and downs. Babawi naman talaga ako,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
