    Game Three saw 25,138 fans fill the Smart-Araneta Coliseum, easily breaking the venue record of 24,896 which was established during Game Two of the series. Jerome Ascano

    FAR Eastern University may have lost the UAAP men’s basketball title to National University, but Tamaraws coach Nash Racela was nonetheless happy to see two ‘unpopular teams' pull in record crowds for the Finals.

    “I’m happy,” said Racela, who prior to the title series stated that not having either an Ateneo or La Salle team in the championship round was good for the league.

    Good thing his words were readily backed by numbers.

    “Actually, natakot din ako dahil baka hindi namin ma-support. Pero almost 17,000 came sa Game One, almost 25,000 sa Game Two, and then more than 25,000 sa Game Three. It tells everybody na it’s not only Ateneo and La Salle.”

    The decisive Game Three actually set another milestone as a total of 25,138 fans filled the Smart-Araneta Coliseum, easily breaking the venue record of 24,896 which was established during Game Two of the series.

    “I’m sorry to my Atenean friends and La Sallian friends, but that’s the reality. Masaya kami for FEU and NU,” said Racela.

    NU counterpart Eric Altamirano was also elated with the turnout during the series even as he seconded the statements of Racela shortly after the Bulldogs won their first league title in 60 years.

    “It’s good for the league. Napuno ng dalawang teams ‘yung coliseum. Dalawang teams lang. It was an achievement for both schools and for the league,” said Altamirano.

    Racela said NU’s title victory should be celebrated by the whole UAAP.

    “We wanted to win the championship but NU winning the championship, dapat maging masaya din ang ibang schools,” said the FEU mentor.

    Bullpups open title defense with OT win over Baby Tams

    MANILA — Opening their title defense bid in the 77th UAAP juniors basketball tournament, National University needed an extra period to squeak past Far Eastern University in overtime, 71-66, Saturday afternoon at the Blue Eagle Gym in Quezon City.

    The reigning juniors champions leaned on their balanced scoring as four players finished in double-digits with Philip Manalang coming up with big plays in the clutch to power the Bullpups over the pesky Baby Tamaraws.


    The win did not come easy for NU, however, as Christian Fajarito displayed nerves of steel at the end of regulation, sinking his two free throws to erase the reigning champs’ 58-56 lead and send the game into overtime.

    The Bullpups used their experience in the extra period as Oliver de Guzman, Allen Mina and John Clemente converted the telling blows that gave NU a 68-64 advantage with 33.7 seconds to go.


    Wendell Comboy, who tallied in a double-double production of 10 markers and 11 boards, then tried to carry the Baby Tams back into the game as he cut NU’s lead down to just two in the dying moments of the game but Manalang foiled his plans with a 2/2 trip to the line for the final score of 70-66.

    Manalang finished the game with 13 points and five rebounds while Mina and de Guzman added 13 and 11 respectively.


    Mark Dyke, meanwhile, provided the steady production for NU as he added 11 points and eight rebounds.

    Marvin Lee, Brandrey Bienes, and Carlou Lloren backstopped Fajarito and Comboy’s leadership as they contributed 16, 10, and 10 points.
