    MANILA, Philippines – Far Eastern University (FEU) completed a season sweep of Ateneo de Manila University after downing the Blue Eagles, 66-61, in their second round encounter of the UAAP Season 78 tournament Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.

    A 10-0 run bridging the third and fourth quarters gave the Tamaraws a 54-49 advantage with 8:29 to go, and it proved to be enough of a cushion to hold off a late Ateneo charge led by Kiefer Ravena.

    Far Eastern University used a strong fourth quarter to clip Ateneo, 66-61, and extend its winning run to six games in the UAAP Season 78 men’s basketball tournament Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    Mac Belo, Al Francis Tamsi and Achie Iņigo ignited a 7-0 run early in the fourth that allowed the Tamaraws to take a 54-47 lead.

    Kiefer Ravena kept the Blue Eagles fighting, but the Tams had Belo to match his clutch baskets before FEU sealed the game at the charity stripe, thanks to Russel Escoto, Mike Tolomia, and Roger Pogoy inside the final minute.

    The win allowed the Tamaraws to momentarily take solo leadership at 7-1 while also sending Ateneo to its third straight defeat to fall to 4-4.

    “There’s a lot to improve on, especially on the defensive end,” said FEU head coach Nash Racela, who kept his wards hungry despite their recent success.

    Belo, the graduating forward, led a balanced attack for FEU with 12 points, five rebounds, and two assists, while Escoto got 10 markers and six boards.

    Roger Pogoy also had 10 points and Raymar Jose hauled down 13 rebounds to go with his two points.

    “We told them before this game that we’re at 6-1, but we had close games where we could’ve been 3-4,” said Racela. “We shouldn’t be really be happy where we are right now. We have to focus more on the things we can improve on.”

    The Tamaraws completed an elimination round sweep of the Blue Eagles after scoring an 88-64 rout in the first round.

    Ravena paced Ateneo in the losing effort with 15 points on 5-of-15 shooting from the field, to go with five rebounds while Adrian Wong had a career-high 14 points in the loss.

    University of Santo Tomas also guns for a 7-1 slate against De La Salle University later in the day.

    Mac Belo's Gilas cadet stint helped him to become a better perimeter defender, says FEU coach

    Mac Belo's Gilas cadet stint helped him to become a better perimeter defender, says FEU coach

    FOR someone known for guarding bigger players early in his collegiate career, it appeared to be an effortless thing for Mac Belo now that he’s assigned taking on smaller men in Season 78 of the UAAP.

    And that was none more obvious on Sunday when Belo took on the role as primary defender of Ateneo gunners Kiefer Ravena and Von Pessumal in the Tamaraws’ 66-61 win over the Blue Eagles.

    The strategy worked.

    Ravena scored 11 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter but had to bleed for every basket late in the game when Belo was in front of him.

    The FEU stalwart even had a big block on Ravena during the waning moments of the match that sealed FEU’s win over Ateneo.

    Earlier, Belo was also tasked to defend Pessumal, who was held down to just eight points and shot just 2-of-10 from the field.

    FEU coach Nash Racela said Belo’s defensive abilities is a testament of how he has grown by leaps and bounds since he became part of the Gilas cadet team two years ago when he played for the national team in the 2013 Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar.

    He was also part of the team this year when the biennial meet was held in Singapore.

    “Again, it’s part of Mac’s improvement. Kasi dati, he is used to guard bigger guys sa ilalim. When he started playing with Gilas, doon siya natuto.

    “He started guarding perimeter players and he really embraced that. Kaya that gave us confidence na ilagay siya sa perimeter,” said Racela.

    The FEU mentor is impressed with how Belo defended against the Blue Eagles while doing well on offense by scoring a team-high 12 points for the Tamaraws, who stayed in first place with a 7-1 win-loss slate.

    “I think he did well against Von today. Towards the end, we have to use him on Kiefer. Not part of the plan but kinailangan,” he said.

    Belo said for his part that he is making a concerted effort to be a complete player by playing defense.

    “Kailangan ko talaga mag-work sa defense especially sa small. ‘Yun ang iniimprove ko every game,” said the national team member

    Embattled Bo Perasol confirms season will be his last with Ateneo Blue Eagles

    Embattled Bo Perasol confirms season will be his last with Ateneo Blue Eagles

    Bo Perasol admitted he's not coming back to coach the Ateneo Blue Eagles by the end of the season.

    ATENEO coach Bo Perasol disclosed this season will be his final year with the Blue Eagles, regardless of what the outcome of their campaign is going to be in UAAP Season 78.

    Perasol confirmed he had already spoken with management about his plan not to return to the team by the end of his three-year agreement to coach the Katipunan-based team.

    “Meron na kaming agreement. I told them that this will be my last year,” said Perasol to a few reporters after Ateneo lost to FarEastern University on Sunday.

    Asked if the decision is regardless of the result of the Blue Eagles’ season, Perasol said: “Regardless ‘yun.”

    The Ateneo coach added the team is well aware of his decision not to stay.

    “Alam nila ‘yun. The team knows that. The management knows that. Laging ang usapan namin, ‘This is our last hurrah,’” Perasol said.

    The former University of the Philippines’ stalwart’s statements came after his future with the team hangs in the balance prior to the start of the second round.

    Sources, however, said his decision to walk away from the team came way before this week.

    Perasol also hinted he is not inclined to stay on even if the Eagles’ Season 78 campaign ends with a championship.

    “Napag-usapan na namin lahat. I don’t think that’s going to be something that needs to be talked about. We all understand that already,” he said.

    Perasol admitted receiving offers from outside Ateneo, but added he is not entertaining any of them owing to the ongoing UAAP campaign.

    “Ang mga offers, from the outside. But I don’t talk to them because meron akong obligasyon dito sa Ateneo,” said Perasol.

    Despite serving his final year with the team, Perasol said he is bent on giving the Blue Eagles a championship, especially after getting the support of management when it decided that he stay for
    the remainder of the season.

    “The mere fact na pinaglaban ako ng management to continue this, I’m really bent on doing something with the team. We still have time to do that,” he said.

    Perasol took over the Ateneo coaching helm in 2013 when Norman Black returned to coach
    Talk 'N Text in the PBA after guiding the Blue Eagles to five straight championships.

    He had a tough first season with the Blue Eagles after missing the Final Four on a year when Ravena was saddled by an injury for the better part of the season.

    Perasol guided Ateneo on top at the end of the eliminations last year, only to lose to eventual champion National University in the Final Four.

    Tamaraws downplay Final Four feat, focused on remaining games

    Far Eastern University had every right to celebrate on Saturday night when it became the first team to make the Final Four following a close win over University of the East.

    But as the final horn sounded, the Tamaraws shook hands with the Red Warriors and quietly headed to the locker room.

    Make no mistake, the Tamaraws have their sights locked in on a championship and nothing less.

    “To tell you honestly, it’s not in our minds,” FEU head coach Nash Racela told reporters when asked about his team’s Final Four accomplishment this early in the season. “We know that [if we win] we’re going to get into the Final Four so why bother thinking about it.”

    “Getting into the Final Four is not enough,” said swingman Roger Pogoy, who hit a crucial triple late en route to a 12-point, eight-rebound effort. “There’s still a lot of time for us to improve before we get to the playoffs.”

    And in a blink of an eye, Racela shifted his focus on what’s next.

    “We just want to focus on the next one. When we play Adamson they just came off a big win today. We can’t take teams for granted even if they’re at the bottom of the standings because those are strong teams and all of them gave us a hard time in the first round.”

    The victory extended FEU’s winning run to eight games and gave the Tamaraws a one-game lead over University of Santo Tomas, the only team to beat them so far this season, for the top seed.

    “Scary,” Racela said after his team slithered its way out of trouble against UE. “It’s scary,” he went on again.

    What’s more frightening is how fearsome FEU has been all season.
