Ateneo will win. JR Cawaling is a doubtful starter. Pulled hamstring. :(

FEU won the first encounter using an air-tight halfcourt trapping defense. They would most likely used the same formula. And if they can do it with the same efficiency, they're gonna win.

Coach Norman Black would definitely make the necessary adjustments. He may want to risk using his other pointguards in the bench for better ballhandling. Turnovers have been the team's achille's heel. Their outside shooting should click to open up the middle.

This will be a close match unlike the first encounter. But I slightly favor FEU to take this one.

Yup Coach Norman made the proper adjustments to make the game close up to the early 4th. Then came that 6 minute span where FEU scored only 3 points. Black even gambled on the seldom used Escueta to do the pointguard chores. Yuri did a couple of errors in the second half but he made a good account of himself in the first Q. The biggest casualty of Norman's strategy was Ken Baracosso who rode the bench.

You called it right, with that injury to Cawaling. But he showed no signs of injury while inside. Though you missed the injury of Fernandez. Fernandez should know better not to feign injury when he is more needed in the floor. He tried to imitate the flops of Tiu but backfired when the refs ingnored him. Still, nothing to be ashamed for the Tams, they still had the rock-solid defense until they collapsed in the 4th quarter--as expected from rookies.

Speaking of Tiu, they'd better check his knees since he easily falls after a nudge. Kidding aside, great clutch plays in the endgame. A do-it-all job indeed. Arao was also aggressive and used his height advantage to the hilt. A better defense for the Eagles this time around.

nasiraan kami ng loob nung maka back to back three's sina Tiu at Monfort. Dinaga agad sa dibdib. ;D
