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.

Bam Aquino drops out of top 12 senatorial bets for 2019 polls – survey

Oppositionist Sen. Bam Aquino dropped out of the top 12 senatorial bets -- the so-called Magic 12 -- for the May 2019 senatorial elections, a Pulse Asia survey showed on Saturday. The recent nationwide pre-election survey showed that the senator placed at the 20th spot. His cousin, Kris Aquino, followed him next. The senator obtained a 20.1 percent voter preference while the Queen of All Media had a voter preference of 17.7 percent. Aquino attributed his drop in the Magic 12 to the inclusion of his cousin in the said list. According to him, voters became divided for their choice.
