Drive for Five? Finally over! The Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles has just clinched their fifth straight UAAP basketball title, knocking out the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers with a score of 65-62 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, about six hours ago.

Senior baller Nico Salva clinched the Finals MVP honors with eight points. He now happens to be one of the few ballers who have won all championships in all of his eligibility years. On the other hand, Jeric Fortuna led UST with 20 markings. The fifth straight championship is the last one for Norman Black, who’ll now return to where he truly belongs—- PBA sidelines via the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters by October 18 vs. Air21 (ironically coached by former UAAP rival mentor/protege Franz Pumaren). Overall, this is the 8th UAAP championship for Ateneo. The previous years of their champhonship were the seasons of 1987, 1988, 2002, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and of course, 2012.

As with the future of Ateneo basketball, the year 2013 would probably be a challenging one for the school per se. With the sudden departure of Manuel V. Pangilinan (who moved to UP), someone has to step up for the program. However, Paolo Trillo and his company would rather focus on celebrating their title first. That said, let’s congratulate the entire Ateneo movement then!

REMINDER: The Opening Ceremonies will be held at the Marikina Sports Complex on July 9th. An-Asian Games style ceremony will be featured plus PBA legend Olsen Racela as the carrier of the torch or more popularly known as the Olympic Torch. All athletes from different UAAP sports will participate the event plus no games will be held. A three-year preparation plus a one-of-a-kind event equals UAAP spirit. Kudos to Season 74 hosts Ateneo and the other seven schools of the UAAP.

Inside the Court

PASIG CITY—This guy maybe the next Chris Tiu, Ateneo superstar center Rabeh Al-H

Here talking to a referee after a foul

ussaini is now a certified UAAP superstar. In this season, instead of Tiu leading the Ateneo Blue Eagles, it was Al-Hussaini who dominated the team, averaging 29.0 mpg, 18.0 ppg, and 13.0 rpg, these stats proved that he can also dominate the league nor the team itself.

Nobody was then happy with Rabeh Al-Hussani. Recruited by ADMU Head Coach Norman Black in 2005, Rabeh was not the Rabeh we all know then, he was always on the bench backing up with the

likes of Clariford Arao and Doug Kramer. Until the departure of these big guys, Norman decided to use Rabeh as a balanced player and he totally became a superstar!

Now Ateneo has been winning because of his performances in the games and the balance of the team wherein every player in the roster with the likes of Nonoy Baclao and Chris TIu are helping the team to win. Ateneo is mighty as  it is, they are currently 11-1 in the team standings which proves that Ateneo is likely going to win the championship, their best record since 2003. Now Rabeh is great as he is! Galing mo, gRABEH!

Catch for my next post!
