    Far Eastern University survived a last-ditch stand from hell from their university belt neighbors University of the East to claim the Fil Oil Flying V MVP Cup 84 - 78 in front of a raucous crowd at the Arena in San Juan.

    FEU stormed to the 47-25 lead at the lemon time break built upon the relentless transition attacks of Smart Gilas national team players Mark "Babyface" Barroca and JR Cawaling as well as strongman center-forward Reil Cervantes. Center Glen Eguilos, emergent superstar Ryan Roose Garcia and Cameroonian forward Pipo Nuondoo also joined the attack as the Red Warriors were reeling from the wave upon wave of Tamaraw baskets.

    UE looked shocked and awed and ready to call it a day in the first half. None of their shots were falling, passes were going awry, and the defense, long a staple of UE, seemed to have gone on an early vacation. After an early James Martinez three-pointer, things quickly headed south for the UE game. Power-leaping forward Elmer Espiritu, who displayed a much-improved offensive game in this tournament, couldn't find the bottom of the net. Paul Lee, the new superstar for the red and white, ran into all sorts of trouble trying to penetrate the FEU zone. Head coach Lawrence Chongson went to his bench early and they just could not deliver.

    Showing all the frustration within, Chongson charged a referee right in the middle of the court, got called for the technical foul, and was automatically ejected from the playing court for laying hands on a game official. As he left he took his starting unit with him. Espiritu, Lee, Martinez, Val Acuna and Rudy Linganay left the floor and followed their coach to the dugout early in the third period.

    FEU smelled the kill already and were up as much as 61-38. But the UE bench dug deep and suddenly put up a fight that seemed to stun the Tamaraws. Paul Zamar cut up the FEU defense with his dribble-penetration and one-man early offense. Lucas Tagarda nailed a trey from their left quarter court then followed that up with a short jumper. Jairold Flores, a former RP Youth Team member, and centers Ken Acibar and John Alabanza took turns pounding the ball inside against the bigger and more experienced Tamaraws with alacrity. By the time the quarter ended it was down 67-55 for FEU.

    In the payoff fourth period, Chongson finally sent his starters back to their bench, and they could not have come at a better time. FEU had opened up another 18-point lead. But Acuna, Martinez and Lee went on a 14-0 tear that made it 75-80 with still two minutes left on a drive by Martinez. Action however came to a halt as Martinez had to be brought off the court in a stretcher.

    An Acuna trey made it 78-80 with some 39 seconds remaining. FEU head coach Glen Capacio sued for time. FEU then leaned on Garcia for the insurance freethrows and the final count.

    "I'm glad we pulled out the win, it was tough but the boys kept their cool, UE is a really tough opponent," said Capacio in a post-game interview. "Hopefully this will give us some momentum going into the UAAP, sana nga nagdere-derecho na," he added.

    Garcia was named tournament MVP, while Lee, Espiritu, Cervantes and Sudan Daniels joined him in the Mythical 5. Cawaling led FEU with 20 points while Garcia had 17. Lee had 16 for UE while Acuna added 15.

    Martinez was rushed to the St Luke's hospital and was confirmed with an ACL injury.

    He better not use that as an alibi if UE fails to make it into the semis.

    For the way they played their halfcourt offense this summer, wala talaga silang pag-asang pumasok sa semis ng UAAP. At di naman sa bawat possession ay pupuntos sila mula sa transition offense.

    Bigyan niyo ng dictionary si Chongson at ipabasa ang kahulugan ng salitang "predictable".
    We had a head start in this game. At one time we had a glorious 3rd place finish in the World Championship and was the undisputed power in Asia. But the world has learned how to play it. They may not be as good as us,but they have enough smarts to make use of their height. That is enough to beat us.
